It was hot but no records were tied or broken today.
It is a warm and humid night as low temperatures drop into the mid to upper 60s. Normal highs this time of year are in the upper 60s. Mostly cloudy with a chance for a few showers/storms late and across northern Iowa.
A cold front is forecast to move south across the state with increasing chances of showers/storms. Because it is slow moving, our northern counties will be behind the front with temperatures in the 60s. Ahead of the front it is another warm and humid day with temperatures in the 80s. Fall north and summer south.
Showers and storms become widespread across northern Iowa Tuesday and Tuesday night. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect from Tuesday morning to Wednesday morning along and north of Highway 20.
Rain amounts by Wednesday morning will be 2-4”+ north and 1-2” possible in southeast Iowa.
A few light showers are possible Wednesday. There is a better chance of showers Wednesday night. Rain amounts are expected to be light. It remains cloudy Thursday as temperatures turn much cooler (50s) for afternoon highs. Sunshine returns Friday.
