WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Two eastern Iowa counties lifted their burn bans today, but 13 more remain in effect across the state.

Dubuque and Linn Counties lifter their burn bans at 9 a.m. and Noon respectively.

Thirteen bans remain in effect. Those counties are Bremer, Buchanan, Cerro Gordo, Delaware, Fayette, Floyd, Hancock, Howard, Jackson, Mahaska, Winnebago, Worth and Wright.

The burn bans prohibit open burning because of dry conditions.

More rain is in the forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday that will hopefully allow the remaining burn bans to be lifted.
