The sun has been fighting to get back out from behind the clouds, and now it looks like we will be set for a partly cloudy afternoon. There will be more clouds in northern and NE Iowa where a few sprinkles will also be possible.

Temperatures will stay near 70 today an tomorrow, but warmer weather over the weekend will re-ignite thunderstorms chances by late Saturday into Sunday.

Much warmer weather is on the way next week, with the 80s a sure bet, but keep an eye on the forecast. 90-degree heat is showing signs that it could return to the state by Tuesday.
