The sky will be clear tonight allowing us the chance to see the Leonid Meteor shower tonight. The peak is tonight between midnight and sunrise Saturday. Look in the eastern sky.
The weekend will be sunny with above normal high temperatures. The only catch to the nice weekend is that it will be breezy. This might be a good weekend to get last minute yard work done maybe put up some Christmas lights. Make sure you don’t turn them on until after Thanksgiving….just my preference…one holiday at a time.
We have been tracking the chance for a few light showers Monday. At this point the best timing for the rain would be in the morning. The afternoon does not look as wet. Here is the rain forecast from Sunday evening to Monday evening.

1928: A winter storm struck Iowa on November 16-17 producing significant amounts of sleet and freezing rain across portions of central, eastern, and northeastern Iowa. Many utility poles and wires were snapped and thousands of trees were destroyed. Over the course of the storm more than two inches of rain or freezing rain fell roughly along and southeast of a line from Dubuque to Oskaloosa to Mount Ayr with the highest totals including 3.44 inches at Keosauqua, 3.20 inches at Washington, 3.00 inches at Fairfield, 2.63 inches at Clinton, and 2.36 inches at Tipton. The heavy rain led to flash flooding in some areas which produced considerable damage.
1886: A severe early season blizzard struck northern and western Iowa, with some snow but less severe effects experienced over the rest of the state. Across the north and west several observers noted it as the worst storm in memory for so early in the season, with heavy snow accompanied by very high winds which blew and drifted the snow to such a degree that all travel was rendered impossible. At Algona an observer wrote that the drifting was worse than at any time during the previous winter, and at Concord in Hancock County another observer reported that “fully a foot of snow fell, accompanied by terrific wind.”
