Wednesday: Good morning! A few rain showers are trying to track in and threaten the western portion of the viewing area. We may see a few light showers through this morning before the rain dries up and skies open up a bit, becoming partly cloudy this afternoon. Temperatures will be mild with highs in the low to mid 50s thanks to a breezy southeast wind at 10 to 20 mph.
Tonight: Clouds will be on the increase, slowing our cooling temperatures tonight. Lows will generally be in the low to mid 40s with a few upper 30s possible east. Winds remain southeasterly at 10 to 15 mph.
Thursday: We won't see much sunshine here as skies will be mostly cloudy, bringing a chance for some rain, especially late in the morning and into the afternoon. Temperatures continue to warm into the low to mid 60s with a breezy south southeast wind at 10-20 mph.
Friday: Rain will pick up through Thursday night with lows in the upper 40s. Rain will be likely Friday and into Friday night as a cold front moves through. This cold front will lead to dropping daytime temperatures, especially west. Otherwise highs may reach the upper 50s east. Lows drop to the upper 20s and low 30s Friday night.
Rain/Rivers: Through the week, about a quarter of an inch to an inch of rainfall is expected. The Mississippi is on the rise and is forecast to hit into the minor to moderate flood stage by the weekend and into next week.
Weekend: We will have a nice rebound on Saturday as we climb to the low and mid 50s off of partly cloudy skies. A wind shift Sunday to the south will bring highs back to the 60s with partly sunny skies.
Warm Air Next Week: A south wind will pull in the mid 60s Monday with a chance for rain. We may hit the 70s on Tuesday.
