Perfect weekend for outdoor plans

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The weekend will be a continuation of calm and quiet conditions with partly sunny skies and seasonably cool temperatures. Highs are only expected to top out into the upper 70s and low 80s. Remember the sunscreen as the UV index will be high.

Something fun to do with loved ones this weekend during the evening and overnight hours would be the peak of the Perseids Meteor Shower. Otherwise you’ve got the chance to get some sweet corn to grill out at the St. Jude’s Corn Festival in Cedar Rapids. Maybe catch a baseball game this weekend?

There are many things you could do! Dry weather will stick with us throughout most of the upcoming week. However, we need rain with portions of the TV9 viewing area still under drought conditions.
