Wet...Windy...Warm and Active Week

videoSo I had the opportunity to be at the Iowa State/Kansas State game Saturday. It was a warm day...the game was not as hot.

You will see by the picture that I was on the Kansas State side. One of my best friends had the tickets and he happens to be a K-State graduate. It just so happens he also played football at Kansas State and lettered four years as a Wildcat.

I did proudly weather the crowd and the heat in my Iowa State colors. It was like being in the mouth of the giant purple people eater. Good game...and very nice K-State fans. Wonder if they would have been so kind if ISU won the game. I also threw in a little video of the Iowa State marching band before the game.

The weather between Kansas City and Des Moines is often much different on any given Saturday. This weekend was no exception. We left K.C. today and it was 91 degrees. The sun was bright and the humidity was high. We ran into the fog and drizzle around Osceola. Dense fog was around the car until Warren County. By the time we hit Waukee...it was 56 degrees and we had light drizzle.

There will be a strong south wind along the front to the south of Des Moines tonight. The warm front will lift to the north and the gusty south wind will help warm us to the middle 80s tomorrow.

Then a strong cold front will slide through the state Tuesday and Wednesday. Storms are expected through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

It will be cooler Wednesday...but another warm front will lift from the south and kick in the 80s for Thursday. Gusty south wind will whip up another chance for storms Wednesday night and Thursday.

Like Iowa State...we might all get ready for the roller coaster of ups and downs. Good luck and good game to everyone.
