(Atlantic) The above normal temperatures continue, in fact tomorrow the forecast high is around 60-degrees in the southern part of the state.
“Yes we are looking for highs in the 60’s all across Iowa, especially across Southwest Iowa and it looks like the 1956 all time high of 61-degrees maybe in jeopardy tomorrow,” stated Kevin Deitsch with the National Weather Service in Des Moines. He says the warmer temperatures are the result of a strong ridge that has moved into the area. Even though temperatures are expected to cool off a bit, they will still be above normal.
“There isn’t going to be a big change,” according to Deitsch. “Friday will be a little bit cooler with temperatures in the 50’s, and back to the 40’s this weekend.”
When asked if there was any snow in the forecast? Deitsch said, “not all.”
The normal high for this time of year is around 29-degrees, the normal is 10-degrees.
