TRACKING: Cooler temperatures & windy

Area rivers are on the rise, leading to flooding.   CLICK HERE to see the rivers under a flooding warning and the forecast crest.

Today will be much cooler than the last several days, feeling more like mid-November than mid-October.  We will have a mostly cloudy to partly cloudy sky with temperatures reaching the lower to upper 40s.  It will be windy with a brisk northwest wind 15-25 mph, before calming down just a bit by this afternoon.

It’s going to be very cold tonight.  We do have a Freeze Warning in effect for portions of eastern Iowa, where the growing season comes to an end tonight.  Widespread frost is likely, with lows in the upper 20s north to lower 30s south.  The wind will be NW at 5 mph.

Friday will be mostly cloudy, as a weak disturbance passes through.  An isolated, light rain shower is possible south of Highway 20 as the system passes by, but nothing organized. There will be a lot of dry air in place.  Temperatures remain chilly in the 40s.

Dry conditions are expected for much of the next 7 days.  High temperatures will remain below average in the 40s and 50s.
