Cool but dry Thursday in Iowa


Rain is likely for part of Friday



IN THE FORECAST FOR FOOTBALL FRIDAY. YEAH, WE HAVE THE CLOUDS ALREADY STARTING TO WORK THEIR WAY IN AND WE WILL CERTAINLY START TO SEE THAT RAIN. WE’LL BREAK DOWN THAT FOOTBALL FRIDAY FORECAST IN JUST A SECOND. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK FROM SOME OF OUR SKY CAMS. VERY PICTURESQUE. FIRST DAY OF FALL HERE IN MARSHALLTOWN GOT, A MIXTURE OF MID AND HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS OUT THERE, BUT MORE CLOUDS OFF TO THE SOUTHWEST AND LAKE PANORAMA. AND THAT’S WHERE THE CLOUDS WILL BE MOST PREVALENT THIS AFTERNOON AND WE’LL SEE MORE OF THOSE OVERCAST SKIES OVERTAKE MUCH OF THE STATE LATER ON TODAY. TEMPERATURES RIGHT NOW IN THE UPPER SIX, UPPER TO LOWER SIXTIES. IF YOU RECALL, A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, WE HAD THE LOWS LIKE THIS. SO IT’S VERY REFRESHING TO SEE THAT HERE ON THIS FIRST DAY OF FALL AND REALLY A REFRESHING AIR MASS ACROSS MUCH OF THE PLAINS. WE’VE GOT FIFTIES BACK INTO PARTS OF KANSAS AND NEBRASKA. LOW SIXTIES ACROSS MOST OF THE UPPER MIDWEST AND INTO THE GREAT LAKES. THIS AFTERNOON WHERE THINGS ARE ACTIVE RIGHT NOW WE’RE LOOKING AT THE TROPICS. IT’S THE PEAK OF HURRICANE SEASON AND WE’RE WATCHING HURRICANE FIONA. THAT WAS THE STORM THAT HIT PUERTO RICO CAUSING ALL THAT FLOODING. IT’S CONTINUING TO LIFT UP TO THE NORTH AS A MAJOR HURRICANE LIKELY PASSING TO THE WEST OF BERMUDA. NO IMPACTS EXPECTED TO THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. AND WE’RE KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THIS SYSTEM, TOO, DOWN IN THE CARIBBEAN AS IT MOVES TO THE WEST, THERE’S A POTENTIAL FOR IT TO STRENGTHEN. AND YOU MAY START TO HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS AS WE HEAD INTO NEXT WEEK, BUT NO IMPACTS ARE EXPECTED HERE IN CENTRAL IOWA. WHAT WE ARE WATCHING, THOUGH, OUR MID AND HIGH LEVEL CLOUD STREAM IN AHEAD OF OUR NEXT STORM SYSTEM. THIS WILL BRING US RAINFALL AS WE HEAD INTO THE DAY TOMORROW. THE CLOUDS BECOME A LITTLE BIT MORE WIDESPREAD. LATER ON TONIGHT, WE HAVE A LIGHT NORTHEAST WIND THAT WILL KEEP US COOL AS WELL. BUT THE RAIN STARTS TO BECOME A LITTLE BIT MORE PREVALENT, ESPECIALLY. AND OUR WESTERN COUNTIES WEST OF 35 AFTER 6 A.M. TOMORROW MORNING SPREADING EAST DURING THE MIDDAY HOURS FOR AREAS ALONG THAT I-35 CORRIDOR AND INTO THE AFTERNOON HOURS WILL BE WILL REMAIN WITH SKIES THAT ARE OVERCAST AND LIKELY SOME AREAS OF LIGHT, RAIN AND DRIZZLE AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY EVENING. SO IT’LL BE A COOL AND RAW EVENING FOR ANYONE ATTENDING ANY OF THOSE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAMES. THE GOOD NEWS IS A STRONG FRONT PUSHES IN AS WE HEAD INTO SATURDAY MORNING. WE’LL GET A WEST WIND IN HERE AND THAT’LL DRY US OUT AND CLEAR US UP AS WE HEAD INTO THE DAY ON SATURDAY. FORECAST HIGHS TODAY WILL GENERALLY BE BACK IN THE MID-SIXTIES HERE ACROSS THE STATE, MAYBE A LITTLE BIT COOLER OFF TO THE SOUTHWEST WHERE WHERE THERE WILL BE MORE CLOUDS. OVERNIGHT LOWS BACK IN THE UPPER FORTIES TO LOWER MID-FIFTIES 50 FOR YOU IN AMES, 52 IN GRINNELL, 53 IN THE METRO, AND 50 AND CRESTON. HERE’S A LOOK AT THAT. 80 FORECAST. WE’RE UP TO 66 TODAY WITH MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES, RAIN LIKELY FOR MOST OF THE DAY TOMORROW. AND THAT RAIN WILL KEEP US COOL. HIGHS LIKELY IN THE FIFTIES AND WILL LINGER IN THE FIFTIES AS WE HEAD INTO FRIDAY EVENING FOR FOOTBALL. FRIDAY NIGHT, TEMPERATURES WILL BE HOVERING IN THE FIFTIES WITH THAT DRIZZLE AND LIGHT RAIN. POSSIBLE LINGERING CLOUDS THROUGHOUT MOST OF THE GAMES. AND IT WILL BE BREEZY AND COOL FOR THE SOUTHEAST WHEN THE WEEKEND LOOKS A LOT BETTER. BUT WITH A HIGH OF 76 AS WE HEAD INTO SATURDAY 72 ON SUNDAY, 72 ON MONDAY AS WELL, A STRONG COLD FRONT COMES IN MONDAY NIGHT AND A TUESDAY. THAT’LL DROP US BACK INTO THE SIXTIES FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. AND TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE OVERNIGHT LO
