The skies around the Midwest were nice and sunny Friday. A fine day outside of the winds which have gusted more than 30 mph. If you are headed to a high school football game tonight be prepared for blustery but dry conditions. Temps will inch into the 50s and with the wind a coat will come in handy.
On the satellite you can see some clouds out west. Those will enter the picture Saturday and bring a narrow band of showers across my Iowa counties later in the afternoon. You can see the 75-100 mile rain band at 6:00pm. These will drift east and weaken Saturday night.
For many the rain should remain light but the hi-res models such as the 3k NAM do show a narrow band were amounts are at least 1/2" from Des Moines to Waterloo and on to La Crosse.
Unfortunately the clouds and showers will keep temperatures down in much of my area on Saturday. This is what the 3K NAM has for highs. Hopefully we can do a few degrees better than that. I'm thinking mid 50s.
Sunday the rain is gone but the wind returns as a stronger storm cranks up out west. Highs should get back around 60. The next batch of showers holds off until late Sunday night. Then a sharp cool-down for early next week. Have a great weekend everybody.
