Perfect Weather as RAGBRAI Heads to Creston

In All Posts, Forecasts, Special Events by Henry Luker0 Comments


Not one complaint to mention as the second day of RAGBRAI rolls around as the riders head from Shenandoah to Creston, a town that last saw the annual Des Moines Register event in 1997, some 19 years ago. Things in Creston will be cool early with partly cloudy skies and a temperature of 65° at 4:00 a.m., before clouds move out by afternoon and things heat up to the upper 80s. A light north-to-northeasterly breeze at 5-10 MPH will keep things relatively nice throughout the day.


Another nice and sunny day is on deck for Tuesday before a 50% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms return for Wednesday and Thursday. This will not be widespread by any means, ala it won’t be an all-day rain. But with all thunderstorm chances, lightning is a threat, so riders should pay close attention to radar as they make their ride. End-of-week temperatures look to be on the cooler end, in the low 80s.

Have a great Monday!
