Warm, dry weather forecast for Iowa this week

DES MOINES, Iowa -- It's going to be a dry, breezy and warm week across the state of Iowa.

"Back in the mid-50's for Monday, then a front's going to come through and cool us back into the 40's by Tuesday. As we get through the latter half of the week, temperatures will be going well above normal again. On Thursday, we may get into the upper 60's" says National Weather Service Meteorologist Cory Martin.

He says it will also be mostly dry across the state this week.

"Maybe Friday night into Saturday we could see some light rain--maybe some snow mixed in there as well over the state" Martin says.

He says it'll be a change from last week, when Iowa saw snow and ice, thunderstorms, and cool weather.

"As we go through this time of year our average temperatures are usually the middle ground of extremes. As these weather systems come through, we're usually above or below normal" Martin says.

He says while unseasonable, the warm weather we'll see this week is not all that unusual.
