perry has been very focused on a cap over our area. talk to us about the cap. >> it's not the kind you wear on your head but it is important in the world of weather. a lot of parameters going to severe weather including heating and moisture, or the fronts are located and the time of day. but this afternoon, we have a lot of potential out there but it hasn't been realized because of what we call a cab. if you took a bottle of pop and shook it, what do you think would happen? >> it would go all over. >> the top. we haven't been able to pop the top on the atmosphere. so far, the energy has not caused us any trouble. the longer we can do, the better because the front will get through before the cap breaks. that means no issues for us. so far so good. anyway, that is the bottom line. 85 degrees is our current temperature out there right now. you can see clouds to the west but nothing imminent in the cedar rapids area. winds at southwest at 12 miles per hour and with a dew point of 67, we had ourselves a very warm mid-september day in
6:13 pm
away up north. dubuque, delaware has been dropped from that but from the cell, it is still in effect until 10:00 tonight. if it does not get canceled earlier i think there is a good chance. i wanted to take you to the radar right now. most of this activity here in northeastern iowa is nothing to be concerned about. i don't see a severe weather threat there but further southwest, this atmosphere here is a lot more charged potential is there for stronger storms from highway 30 on to the south. you are looking out of our viewing area. this is the only really strong storm that is producing any severe weather in eastern and central parts of iowa. that one continues to move southeast. from the north, showers and storms in the northeast. these are elevated. they are not surface-based. they are behind this front. nothing to be too worried about. they could produce brief
6:14 pm
move to the east. there is still enough instability in our central and southern counties for the possibility of some stronger storms to develop as we go through the evening hours. so far, the cap seems to be holding tough and the longer we go, the lesser the threat of any severe weather here in eastern iowa. as we go to our hour by hour forecast, you can see by morning, temperatures back in the 50s as the front goes through. tomorrow looks to be a warm day but a quiet one. we will be in between weather systems and we into the low to mid 80s over most of the area. current temperatures showing a big contrast. 85 degrees cedar rapids, 86 degrees iowa city, 66 degrees in old-line. there has been cool air there. our front extends from dubuque to cedar rapids and onto the southeast. that is moving ever so slowly southeast and ahead of that, the moisture is trying to pool and you can see the dew point at 70 degrees in monticello and then you get up to charles city.
6:15 pm
that is how would determine where our fronts are. as this one drops to the southeast, it will take the threat of showers and thunderstorms with it as we go through the overnight hours and eventually the skies will be clearing out and we will get up to plenty of sunshine in eastern iowa. there is the front we are concerned about today. ahead of that, we have had enough instability for scattered storms and those will last until 10 pm or 11 pm and then the front goes through tomorrow. we may have a quieter day but eventually this looks back north end into wednesday. additional showers and storms will be back in the forecast at that time. tomorrow, you can see the temperatures won't be quite as warm as what we had today but still another toasty day for this time of year. a lot of places back in the 80s for highs and we still have enough moisture around to make it feel uncomfortable. on our predictor at 8 pm, you can see a scattering of storms so the model is not very
6:16 pm
by midnight, those are gone and you can see skies start to clear out with patchy ground fog towards morning. that would burn up very quickly and after that, a mostly sunny warm day expected in eastern iowa. tonight, some scattered showers and thunderstorms a possibility early on. a slight chance of a severe storm, especially south of alliance to dubuque an cedar rapids and -- cedar rapids and southeastern iowa. temperatures in the mid to upper 50s for lows. tomorrow, mostly sunny and a one day. a nice one. temperatures in the 80s from hwy 20 to upper 70s in the far north. in our extended outlook, 87 degrees wednesday, another chance of storms and a new -- 81 degrees on thursday with a threat of storms. temperatures staying warm through sunday. finally, we get a friend to come through sunday night and monday. that will cool temperatures sportsthere's a quarterback carousel in ames -- why matt campbell plans on playing both quarterbacks saturday against san jose state -- next on cbs 2.
