      Updated Wednesday, April 26, 2017

      Scattered showers move into parts of eastern Iowa tonight. The closer to the Mississippi River you live the better chance of rain you have. Rain amounts could be near 0.50" along the Mississippi River while areas west of Waterloo might not see any rain. Temperatures drop into the 30s by Thursday morning.

      Clouds slowly thin out Thursday afternoon with a breezy west wind. It is a chilly day with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s. The wind diminishes to nothing overnight with clouds increasing late. It is a crisp start to Friday morning with lows in the low 30s north and near 40 south. There is potential for some frost in the northern counties. 

      Rain chances increase Friday afternoon as a storm moves closer to Iowa. Rain is likely Saturday, Sunday and into Monday morning. Rain amounts from this storm could be in the 1-2 inch range. A gusty northeast wind Saturday increases Sunday before turning to the northwest on Monday. Gusts could be near 35 or 40 mph Sunday and Monday. High temperatures during this storm are in the 40s.  A much different weekend compared to last. 

      Monday is dry with a chance of light rain possible Wednesday with high temperatures those days near 60.
