Tonight: We will have a clear and quiet evening with mild temperatures. By late this evening and into tonight, the clouds will increase and skies will become mostly cloudy. Lows will be a little warmer tonight, in the upper 30s to low 40s with a southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.
Monday: A warm front will begin to move in for Monday but only for areas south of highway 20. This is where highs will be in the mid 60s. Otherwise mid to upper 50s will be likely north of highway 20 with near 60 expected in Waterloo. Unfortunately, the warm front will also bring some moisture and skies will be cloudy with a chance for some showers.
After the peak heating of the day, a few showers and storms will look to spark off near the warm front. This will mainly be in the evening and will push out quickly to the east through the night. Severe weather is not anticipated with these storms.
Warm Tuesday: Everybody will be underneath the warm front for Tuesday with highs in the low to mid 70s. It may also feel a little humid outside. I am expecting the bulk of the clouds to move out and give us partly cloudy skies with perhaps a pop up shower or storm in the afternoon. Most of the rain should stay east of the viewing area along with the threat for severe weather.
Cold Front Wednesday: A cold front will bring back cloudy skies on Wednesday with a chance for some rain. Temperatures should warm to the 60s before dropping after the passage of the front. The warmest air will be found east and south. A brisk northwest wind will follow dropping lows back down to the 30s. With a breezy northwest wind and partly cloudy skies for Thursday, I am expecting highs in the upper 40s. As mostly sunny skies returns for Friday, we will reverse the cooling trend and reach highs in the low 50s.
Cooler than average weather stays for Saturday and Sunday with a rain chance and mostly cloudy skies.
Rivers: The Mississippi river is currently in the flood stage and is forecast to crest in the minor to moderate flood stage through the workweek.
