It looks like Spring may have finally arrived for much of Central Iowa. Saturday will have a few clouds with highs in the middle 50s across much of the area and overnight lows around 40.

Sunday looks fantastic for those that really want to get outside. Highs are going to be in the low to middle 70s for many with upper 70s not out of the question for Western Iowa. But winds will be quite strong. We will have a strong southerly wind with gusts up to 35 mph at times.

The start of the week looks nice as far as temperatures go, but we also have several chances of rain across much of the state starting on Monday morning before we dry out for Tuesday. Showers will return for Wednesday and Thursday before we clear out again for Friday.
