      Updated Sunday, April 30, 2017

      This is it…the last day of April. We’ll be ending it with none other than the famous “April showers”. A warm front to our south early today begins to track north through the day. As it does, more showers are likely off and on through the day. The one difference between Saturday and today is that we have a chance for storms this afternoon and evening. Our severe weather risk is low but if any storms fire up, wind and hail would be a concern. Tornado threat is slim for eastern Iowa today. Winds once again today will be strong – but stronger gusty winds are possible with passing or a pop up storm. The best chance for storms would be between 6pm and midnight.

      After midnight, showers continue. The wind calms a little bit tonight before becoming windy again Monday. For another day tomorrow, we have a chance of rain. Monday will be cool like today but warm air is on the way. By Tuesday, highs reach the upper 50s (which is still 10° below normal for the first week of May, but it is only the start). Tuesday through Friday are dry with clearing skies Thursday. Highs next weekend look like they’ll be back in the low 70s.
