The First Alert Forecast from Meteorologist Kevin Phelps
Very warm temperatures, fog and rain are on tap for your Monday. Look for highs to reach the mid-50s and even the low 60s today, but the more northwest you head the colder it will be. Light rain will break out this morning and lift north through the area. This will eventually turn into the freezing rain/snow tonight for areas in central Iowa. Luckily for us, we will be in the warm sector leading to moderate and heavy rain, especially east of the Mississippi River tonight. Since the ground is still frozen after a few inches deep run off will lead to minor flooding. This system will wrap up on Tuesday and the front finally clears and temps will go from the 50s to the 30s by Wednesday. The active weather will continue for the end of this week with more rain chances by Thursday and even some snow by the weekend.
TODAY: Scattered showers. 56° Winds: S 10-20 mph.
TONIGHT: Moderate to heavy rain. Low 42°. Winds: S 5-15 mph.
TOMORROW: Showers. High 56°.
