Overall, it’s going to be a nice start to the work week. We will have an increase in cloud cover today with high temperatures in the lower 50s north to lowers 60s south.
A warm front tracking through will increase the wind up to 20 mph this afternoon, with higher gusts.
Tonight will be partly cloudy with a few showers possible across northern Iowa. The wind dies down a bit with temperatures in the 40s.
Tuesday will feature a partly sunny sky, with a few showers in northern Iowa lingering during the morning hours.
The chance of rain increases Tuesday night through Thursday as a strong storm system develops on the lee side of the Rockies. This pushes a warm front into Iowa Wednesday. How far north that front gets will be key into our severe weather threat in eastern Iowa.
Right now, the best potential for damaging wind, large hail or an isolated tornado would be south of I-80.
Heavy rain is also a potential through Thursday evening, with 1-2″ possible in eastern Iowa. We will once again be monitoring river levels for potential rises.
