The sky will be clear over Des Moines tonight, but the northern lights are going to be more visible in Minnesota than Iowa. It will still be worth a little time to get away from the city lights and look northward. Best time will be later…after 10:30.
More sunshine is on the way tomorrow. It will be a nice end to the workweek. Highs will be in the middle to upper 50s. There will be a light north wind in the morning. By the afternoon you will feel the wind turn to the south.
Warmer highs on Saturday will come with mostly skies and that south breeze. I think the highs will be around 60.
