      Today's Forecast Image
      • 72°
      • 59°

      Updated Saturday, October 21, 2017

      Storm chances return to eastern Iowa later today. Most of eastern Iowa is under a risk for severe weather late this evening into tonight. The greatest threat to our area is damaging winds, but hail and an isolated tornado are both possibilities. 

      Previous to any storm chances, we do stay dry for most of the daylight hours. Clouds tracked in late Friday and overnight so we wake up to mainly cloudy conditions today. Enjoy the last warm day we likely see for a while. Highs Saturday: 70-77. At times this afternoon, it may feel a little humid ahead of storms pushing through. 

      Storms track through tonight and showers linger into Sunday morning before clearing the area. Lows tonight: 50-55.
