      Storm Track 7 Forecast

      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image
      • 62°
      • 34°

      Updated Friday, November 24, 2017

      After a quiet day Thursday, much of the same is expected today. There will be two major differences between the two days. The first will be the stronger winds. The second will be the much warmer temperatures. Much of eastern Iowa will see the 60s this afternoon. Yes…the 60s the day after Thanksgiving. Afternoon highs reach near record levels. The warmth is not only short lived but also comes with a catch. Breezy winds should be felt across the area. 

      The winds eventually become northerly by tonight, which begins the pull of cool air. Temperatures fall to the low to upper 30s tonight. It is not until Saturday that we really feel the cool air. The difference between the highs today and tomorrow range from 10-15° cooler. The winds calm by tomorrow. 

      Another burst of warm air tracks in Monday (again, along with breezy winds anticipated). We return to near normal by the middle of next week.
