Today will be warmer with highs reaching the lower 60s with partly cloudy skies. A Red Flag Warning will be in effect for central Iowa until 6pm today because of a combination strong southerly winds gusting up 40 mph and low humidity which will combine to raise the fire danger this afternoon. A Wind Advisory for southern and central Iowa will go in effect at 10am and last until 6pm.
Temperatures will be much cooler on Thursday, with highs only in the 40s. 60-degree weather will return over the weekend.
