We’ve got quite a bit of different weather coming at us in the next seven days. First off, I hope you were able to enjoy the record-breaking temperatures this weekend. Here are the record highs from Sunday.
Tonight, clouds increase ahead of our next storm system. Patchy areas of fog are possible with lows dropping into the upper 40s and lower 50s, with a SE wind 5-15 mph.
Moisture increases across the region on Monday, leading to off and on showers and even a few thunderstorms during the day, as the center of the storm system tracks to the north. Highs will still be warm in the upper 50s to middle 60s (records in jeopardy once again). Winds will be S 10-20 mph. Generally 0.25″ to 0.50″ of rain out of this system. We will watch area rivers and streams for rises due to runoff.
Tuesday and Wednesday will be nice days, with once again record-breaking high temperature potential.
We begin cooling down on Thursday, with a chance for rain in the afternoon. This is part of a strong storm system that will track very close to eastern Iowa, bringing a lot of wind, rain, wintry mix, and snow as we head late Thursday night into Friday. This will bring cooler temperatures back to the region next weekend.
Still too early for details, but stay with KWWL Storm Track 7 for updates.
