4:00 PM UPDATE:
As one large and soggy storm moves away tonight...the clouds linger. We are tracking another storm, but this one will track to our northwest and not have much moisture for Iowa. Temperatures remain mild so a few light rain showers are possible Tuesday night into Wednesday. Thursday through Saturday will be dry and colder with highs in the upper 20s and low 30s. We are back in the 40s by Monday. The cold just doesn't seem to last very long so far this winter.
Dry air tracking into the state is bringing an end to the widespread rain that has fallen over the KWWL viewing area over the last few days. Temperatures will be steady or falling as winds pick up to 10-20 mph gusting higher. Eventually they will turn to the northwest and bring in even cooler air. While we will stay above normal for a few days, the main trend will be cooler by the end of the week with highs only in the mid 20s for Friday. A few rain or snow showers will track through on Wednesday, but amounts appear to remain light.
We will be keeping an eye on area rivers for possible rising water through the next few days. Minor flooding is possible including on the Turkey River in Clayton county while moderate flooding is expected on the Iowa River at Marengo and the English River at Kalona. Most locations will rapidly fall once they reach their crest. Click here for more information on the current and forecast river levels.
