It will be warm and fairly humid today as a front tracks into the area.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible today, although it is possible early storms will die out as they track into the state. Other storms may develop this afternoon.
There are some computer models that have nothing developing until after Midnight tonight.
If they develop this afternoon and/or evening, we could see strong to severe storms with hail and wind the main threats. Heavy rainfall becomes the main threats after Midnight and through Friday. This outlook has shifted south a bit to now include Iowa City.
The front will stall over Iowa and will determine how warm you are on Friday. Any rainfall will also cool you off. The coolest temperature will be north of the front with warmer weather to the south, but any change in the position of the front will change your high temperature for Friday.
While showers and storms are likely, severe weather will be more likely to our west on Friday.
We remain very active through the weekend with a low pressure system bringing strong winds, more storms and heavy rainfall to the state over the weekend.
Storms on Saturday could again be strong to severe with wind and hail again the main threats, although heavy rainfall will also be possible.
Several rounds of storms will continue into next week (Monday is the “driest” day, but may still have some lingering morning showers). Heavy rainfall is likely.
Rises on river levels are expected. Stay updated with the latest forecast, as placement of the storms and rain will be very important for the river level forecasts. You can keep an eye on the river levels by clicking here.
