TRACKING: Flood warnings and warmer temperatures

Several rivers are experiencing minor, moderate or major flooding.  If you ever come across a flooded roadway… turn around, don’t drown!  Click here for the latest river stages and forecast crests.

A reported ice jam along the Cedar River between Vinton and Mount Auburn Saturday evening has kept the Cedar a littler higher in in Cedar Falls/Waterloo, as well as Vinton, Palo and Cedar Rapids.

Our weather today remains dry, with a partly cloudy to mostly cloudy sky.  Watch for areas of fog in areas that saw fresh snow last night.  Temperatures for St. Patrick’s Day will be in the middle 30s north, to middle 40s south.

Tonight, a weak disturbance tracks through eastern Iowa, providing a slight chance for a few rain or snow showers.  No accumulation expected.  We’ll watch for areas of patchy fog by Monday morning.

Much of the next week will be relatively quiet, which is great news for our rivers.  There’s a slight chance for a few showers in southern Iowa Tuesday.

Temperatures will be in the middle 40s to near 50° Monday and Tuesday, with 50s to near 60° possible later in the week.
