Iowans are seeing a warm start to the work week as temperatures are expected to climb into the 60s and 70s for the next few days, perhaps even reaching the 80s on Wednesday.

 Meteorologist Kevin Skow, at the National Weather Service, says the warmth won’t last much longer than that.

“We could see a pretty strong cold front coming through on Wednesday into Thursday,” Skow says. “We could see highs dropping off into the 40s and 50s for the end of the week and for the weekend.” For now, today’s temperatures are expected to be 15 degrees warmer than normal for some Iowa cities.
