High temperatures will still be slightly below average through Saturday, but it’s pretty hard to complain about highs ranging from 57-63°! Temperatures are expected to warm even more into early next week.

Rain chances are expected to stay isolated late in the day on Thursday. Another round of isolated showers is possible late Sunday. Monday and Tuesday will be the days we’ll keep a close eye on. Temperatures will warm into the middle 70s Monday and we could have a possible setup for strong to even severe thunderstorms.

The current Storm Prediction Center severe weather outlook for Monday has a level 2 out of 5 threat level for areas just west of I-35. The current target zone looks to be central and western Iowa. We’re still nearly 7 days out so A LOT can change with this setup. The reason I’m pointing this out is that it’s pretty rare to have a severe weather risk on day 7 and it’s something we will be keeping a close eye on through the weekend.

Looking through the rest of the workweek, isolated showers will be possible Thursday with dry conditions settling in for the weekend. High temperatures this weekend will be in the middle 60s with partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will jump into the middle and lower 70s early next week with storm chances on Monday and Tuesday.
