Welcome stretch of dry weather ahead

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The active, chilly pattern was relentless for weeks. Whether very cold, snowy, wet or all of the above, it’s been tough to stack up many dry days lately.

A ridge of high pressure is pushing into the upper Midwest, allowing dry air to spill south into our area. This dry air will play a key role in keeping precipitation out of our area for the most part. There’s a slight chance at a sprinkle or flurry Saturday as clouds increase, but that would be about it.

All of next week appears dry and quiet at this time, which is great news for our rivers!
