      • 63°

      Updated Thursday, June 21, 2018

      Today is the Summer Solstice. Summer officially begins today at 5:07AM. We have a system pushing through the state today. That continues our chances of showers and storms across eastern Iowa. It will be a cool start to summer with highs in the 60s and 70s. Normal highs this time of year run in the low 80s. We don’t see those numbers until the weekend. Rain chances continue tonight into tomorrow before a break in rain potential for Saturday.

      Slightly warmer air tracks in tomorrow. Highs Friday reach the upper 60s to low 70s.  Temperatures push even closer to the 80° threshold Saturday and surpass that number for Sunday. Storm chances return Sunday through Tuesday.
