Skies will clear this evening and temperatures will drop! It will be cold as we hit the mid 20s early Tuesday morning. The record low on Tuesday is 20 degrees set in 1928.
The cloudless sky will give night owls the opportunity to view the "blood moon" from around 1 a.m. The moon's rare total eclipse will peak at around 2:45 a.m.
Tuesday brings more sunshine and warmer temperatures nearing 50 degrees by afternoon. Wednesday will be the warmest day with a strong southerly wind and highs reaching 60.
Clouds will thicken up Thursday and another chance of rain moves through Central Iowa. Some snow may mix in late Thursday night and early Friday morning. No accumulation will occur.
