More Heavy Rain

There is a wide spread area of rain exceeding 10″ in the last 30 days. The map does not include the rain from Monday.

Showers and storms taper off overnight. Tuesday morning into early afternoon we stay dry. Tuesday afternoon, showers and storms develop and will continue through the evening and overnight. Rain is on and off through most of Wednesday as well before ending during the late afternoon and evening. Thursday is Dry. Isolated storms are possible Friday, but the bigger concern would be the potential for more heavy rain this weekend. The latest forecast track from the National Hurricane Center shows Tropical Storm Gordon making landfall Tuesday. The moisture from the storm could make it as far north as Iowa this weekend.

Here is a look at the potential rainfall through Monday evening. You can see where the heavy rain moves north and across Iowa.
