CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - A stretch of some pretty pleasant weather is on the way for the next 24 to 48 hours.

It begins tonight with mostly clear skies and light winds, making for ideal viewing conditions for the total lunar eclipse that takes place between about 10:30 and 11:50 p.m.

A chance for showers and storms arrives late Tuesday into early Wednesday, with a bit of a break before the next chance late on Thursday into Friday. The latest forecast trends take much cooler air into the Midwest by next weekend, with highs back in the 60s.
