Some isolated showers and thunderstorms dropped southeastward
across the area overnight, as a cold front pushed into the
region. Some of the storms produced brief heavy rains; which
amounted to just under two tenths of an inch in Lowden, Iowa.
Otherwise, muggy and calm conditions prevailed across the area;
with some patchy areas of dense fog. Temperatures bottomed out in
the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Mostly sunny skies will be common across the area this afternoon,
as a ridge of high pressure builds into the region behind the cold
front. In addition, lower humidity levels will filter into the
area late this afternoon and tonight. Temperatures will top out
in the 80s. Locations southeast of a line from Fairfield to
Sterling will see heat indices climb into the low to mid 90s.
