Graphical depiction of the weather story for today.

Beautiful fall weather continues today and Wednesday with highs ranging in the upper 50s and lower 60s in northern Iowa, to middle 60s to lower 70s across south-central Iowa both days. Increasing clouds are forecast on Wednesday ahead of a quick moving trough of low pressure that will develop over the northern Rockies. Expect rain from this system to push across central Iowa late Wednesday evening into Thursday morning, before quickly moving into eastern Iowa by the early afternoon hours Thursday. Once this system moves out, high pressure builds into the region Friday and dominates the weather pattern into the weekend. Well above normal temperatures are anticipated by Friday and look to continue into the weekend. 70s will be common for high temperatures Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, with Sunday likely the warmest day over the next week. #iawx #iowaweather
