      Today's Forecast Image
      • 80°
      • 69°

      Updated Wednesday, July 26, 2017

      A warm and very humid air mass is back in place across eastern Iowa.  With a cold front to our northwest, rain and thunderstorms are a likelihood this afternoon and evening.  

      With the clouds this morning, the threat for severe weather has gone down this afternoon.  However, thunderstorms with heavy rain and gusty wind are a potential.  A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is posted for areas along and south of Interstate 80 for tonight.  The better threat for flash flooding is southern Iowa an northern Missouri.

      We will slowly "cool off" with temperatures in the low 80s tomorrow and upper 70s Friday and Saturday. Dewpoints will drop to more comfortable levels for the weekend.  The weekend will be nice and dry.
