northern and western counties as we go through the night you could see that extends all the way back down into missouri but moving quickly and losing some of its intensity now that the sun is set i don't think it will be overly heavy, probably by 1:00, 2:00 most of this will be out of other than iowa that will be the sunshine we'll be enjoying the day tomorrow up here is some cool air in montana, snow is falng those areas tonight and that front will sweep to the southeast bring warm air tomorrow and much colder conditions by the time we get to wednesday. here is tomorrow's highs ahead of that front well into the 70s with sunshine enjoying outstanding weather then the bottom falls out look as the temperatures towards wednesday afternoon highs in the upper 40s parts of north central iowa we'll probably start out in the low to mid-50s by evening should be approaching the upper
thursday morning if we get the light wind and high pressure that we're expecting, low temperatures in the low to mid-30s and frost will be a possibility here in eastern iowa you can see how the rain is expected to make a pivot to the northeast and by midnight most of it is located to the northwest of cedar rapids and dubuque, finally by the time we get to the rest of the night, pushing into wisconsin clearing in our southern and western counties that's the sunshine that will be around in allowing temperatures to warm back into the 70s enjoy it, though, won't be around long tonight's forecast has mostly cloudy skies maybe a brief shower or sprinkle, particularly in our northern and western counti low temperatures about 53 to 57 and for tomorrow back up into the 70s should have plenty of sunshine around as the clouds move out very early in the day and the extended out look has the front coming in on

about our play and thoughts and our actions that's what we're controlling right now. there is only one kinda hard to believe considering they lost teddy bridgewater before the season and adrian peterson in week 2 but the purple people eaters have stayed strong -- the offense is improving with sam bradford -- and the defense has been lights out -- but the thing mike zimmer likes the most -- his teams preparation. : "the thing i like about this football team is that they prepare... they study, they get re take this stuff serious so during the week when we get going... these guys are all in trying to get better." on the diamond -- the iowa baseball team released their schedule for their this season -- the hawks will open the year -- by traveling south for 5 straight weekends starting with a trip to south florida -- their first home game -- march 7th against northern illinois -- out of the big 10 -- iowa will host purdue,
