      Today's Forecast Image
      • 84°
      • 63°

      Updated Sunday, August 19, 2018

      Temperatures today will be similar to what we experienced on Saturday. Highs reach the low to mid-80s. Humidity continues to make a home in eastern Iowa to close the weekend (and even to start the work week). Clouds increase through the day today. A few showers or isolated storms are possible this afternoon as a system tracks eastward across the country. Storm chances increase late tonight into Monday morning. Overnight lows as storms push in fall into the 60s, making for another humid night. 

      Monday is our best chance of storms this week. Most, if not all, of eastern Iowa sees storms to start the work week. Lingering humidity increases the chance for pockets of heavy rain to track through, as well. As the system continues its eastward movement, we could also have breezy winds Monday. Breezy winds are likely on Tuesday after the bulk of the rain tracks away from our area. Neither Monday nor Tuesday will have any locations reaching the 80s in eastern Iowa. Prepare for fall like weather Tuesday through Thursday with low humidity and many areas not reaching the 80s. Humidity and storm chances return on Friday.
