Iowa Forecast: Showers southwest today…eyeing weekend storm chances.


We saw scattered showers and thunderstorms across the state yesterday. This was a very low confidence forecast with data not even close to what was happening in real-time and this is something we see often with these nuisance type weather events. Here is a look at total precipitation from the last 24 hours. You can see a few areas that did cash in on some decent rain amounts.

Our storm system from yesterday will continue to press east today with scattered showers across southwest Iowa and a few sprinkles not ruled out across northeast Iowa. This activity should last through the midday time frame before the system moves east of the state. We will see partly sunny skies but becoming mostly sunny late this afternoon with high temperatures in the 70s to lower 80s and mid 80s confined to extreme southern Iowa.

Storm chances will ramp back up over this upcoming weekend with the potential for decent rain totals on the table. This is probably overdone some but does show the overall idea. We will continue to iron out placement and totals in the coming days.
