No doubt about it, we have had a stretch of unseasonable warm temperatures. A handful of temperatures record were broken across the region Saturday.
Locally, the records in Waterloo and Cedar Rapids fell just a few degrees short.
Another warm day is on tap for Sunday. In fact, record highs across eastern Iowa are once again in jeopardy.
Enjoy Sunday, as it will be a mostly sunny day. The warmth will continue into Monday, but we are tracking a chance for rain. A low pressure system in the plains is going to draw in an abnormal amount of moisture into eastern Iowa. Showers and even a few thunderstorms are possible during the day on Monday. Another round is possible late Monday afternoon into the evening, before ending overnight. When all is said and done, 0.25″ to 0.50″ of rain is possible, with locally higher amounts possible.
Beyond Monday, temperatures remain above average, but on a slight downhill turn. We continue to track a potent storm system for the end of the week, that looks to bring rain, wind and even the chance for snow returns. Stay tuned…
