What Does the Next Week Hold?

Climate Prediction Center Precipitation Outlook

After a very active week of weather last week, this week will be much tamer. Temperatures will continue to warm into Wednesday, which will be the warmest day of the week. Highs on Wednesday will range from the upper 30’s to upper 40’s across the state.

Temperatures will then cool into the weekend, with the next chance of precipitation on Thursday. At this time, light rain and possibly light snow appears possible across mainly eastern Iowa, but it will be very light. The sun will return on Friday and will stick around through the weekend, with highs in the 30’s and 40’s.

Looking ahead, the Climate Prediction Center has outlined Iowa in a 40% to 50% chance of above-average precipitation chances in the next 6 to 10 days. As for temperatures, the southeast half of the state will be average, with the northwest half of the state expected to be slightly below average.

And for you snow lovers, we have looked way ahead in the models, and there are a couple chances of snow in the next couple of weeks, so we aren’t done yet with winter. Sorry to those of you who are tired of the snow. As always, follow the Iowa Storm Chasing Network on Twitter, Facebook and right here at IowaChase.com for the latest forecast updates.
