      Updated Saturday, April 21, 2018

      Spring, is that you? That is right, everyone. Spring like conditions are returning to eastern Iowa this weekend. It only took a month after the equinox but better late than never…right? Temperatures today warm into the low to mid-50s. Though those numbers are still below normal, it is only the beginning. Cloud cover lingers overhead for us and that slows our warming process. Clouds continue to hang around tonight. On the flip side, that will keep us from cooling quite as much. Tonight, lows will be in the mid-30s to low 40s with a light wind. 

      Maybe you decide to not head outside today. Fair. Tomorrow, on the other hand, will be warmer and feature more sunshine. Highs Sunday warm to the upper 50s to low 60s under partly cloudy skies. Winds from the southeast transport warmer air into our neighborhoods. It remains quiet on Monday but a tinge warmer – low 60s to upper 60s. 

      Chances for rain showers tracks in Tuesday through Thursday. It does not look like a washout but we will get some moisture pushing into the area. Breezy winds return Thursday and Friday.
