Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image
  • 69°
  • 54°

Hopefully you had a wonderful Easter and had the opportunity to enjoy temperatures above the average. The stalled front across northern Iowa has been offering rain and showers throughout much of the day, but considering it stayed very well confined to its location most of us saw a good amount of sunshine today and only a few passing clouds that ventured far enough north.

Tonight will be mostly cloudy as a warm front pushes north into the night and a cold front moves into Minnesota from the Dakotas. This also means we have the light chance of seeing some new precipitation, but most of the rain will be light and scattered. Winds will be variable before trending out of the northwest at 5-10mph and a low temperature dropping to 54°F

Monday will start off mostly cloudy, but will clear as the day progresses. Winds will increase as well out of the northwest to 10-20mph with gusts of 25mph present. Temperatures will hit 69°F.

Monday night and Tuesday morning will be mostly clear and allow temperatures to fall to 37°F with winds decreasing back to 5-10mph out of the north thanks to a high pressure system.
