      Updated Thursday, April 26, 2018

      The sky is clear tonight with lows dropping into the 30s by morning. The wind is from the northwest around 10-15 mph. A gusty northwest wind is on the way through Friday under a mostly sunny sky. Highs once again warm into the 60s. Friday night is dry except for far northeast Iowa along the Mississippi River, a stray light rain shower is possible.

      Saturday is mostly sunny and cooler with highs in the 50s...about 10 degrees below normal. Sunday is mostly sunny as well, but warmer as highs reach the mid 60s. The wind increases from the south during the day making it a breezy day.

      A gusty south wind Monday pushes highs into the mid 70s as well as increases the humidity level. Monday is dry with a mix of sun and clouds. Tuesday is warm and windy again, but showers and storms are possible as cold front slowly moves east across the state.

      A few showers and storms linger into Wednesday with slightly cooler temperatures and less wind.
