The morning started out with some frost and chilly temperatures but a warm front will bring some winds and warmer temperatures for this afternoon. Highs will be in the 50s to around 60 degrees. Winds will also increase from the south/southeast at 10-20 mph.
Since a weak system and warm front will be tracking across the state, a few showers or isolated storms are possible after 7 PM tonight into the overnight hours. The best chance of any rain looks to be mainly in northern Iowa, north of HWY 3.
Elsewhere will have partly cloudy skies. Lows will be in the 40s and winds will be from the south at 5-15 mph.
Any rain will end early Tuesday morning in northern Iowa and partly sunny skies are expected throughout the day. Highs will be warm in the 60s to lower 70s. Winds will be from the east at 5-15 mph.
Rain then tracks into Iowa starting Tuesday night with a strong low pressure system. A few storms could become severe Wednesday evening/night. The risk for severe weather will be dependent on where the warm front sets up Wednesday so be sure to stay tuned to upcoming forecasts.
By the time this system tracks out early Friday, there is the potential for eastern Iowa to have picked up over an inch of rain or more. Heavy rainfall could have an effect on rivers that are already high. Be sure to stay up to date on the latest.
Easter weekend is looking excellent for now with highs in the 60s and rain holding off until Monday.
