Mostly sunny skies and above normal temperatures were found across
the region on Monday, as a cold front slowly tracked east over
Iowa and Wisconsin. A line of showers and thunderstorms developed
along and ahead of the cold front during the late afternoon and
evening. These storms brought large hail and heavy downpours to
parts of northeast Iowa and southern Wisconsin. Closer to home,
little to no rain fell due to warm air in the lower atmosphere
preventing thunderstorm development. Monday high temperatures,
ranged from 84 degrees in Independence and Freeport, to 92 degrees
in Mount Pleasant. This is 11 to 16 degrees above normal for the
middle of September.
A few isolated showers will be possible for areas north of highway
30 overnight tonight, as the cold front pushes east into Illinois.
Otherwise, decreasing clouds and mild temperatures will be found.
Expect Tuesday morning low temperatures to drop into the middle
50s north of highway 20, to the middle 60s in northeast Missouri
and west central Illinois. Above normal temperatures and mostly
sunny skies will be the norm Tuesday, with highs topping out in
