Scattered thunderstorms continued to bubble over southeast Iowa
overnight. There were a couple reports of damaging winds across
Mahaska county otherwise no severe weather was reported. Historic
flooding is on going across parts of the Turkey and Upper Iowa
Rivers while rises continued over many streams over northeast
Iowa due to very heavy rainfall the previous night. Temperatures
at 4 am ranged from the mid 50s northwest to near 70 far
southeast. The wind was light and variable.
High pressure will settle over northern Iowa and southern
Minnesota today and bring pleasant conditions to that region.
Further south the threat for thunderstorms will continue from
Kansas through Illinois. A few severe storms along with heavy
rainfall may occur with this activity. A few showers and
thunderstorms may lift as far north as southern Iowa. Warm and
moist air will lift back north Friday into Saturday and this will
bring renewed chances for thunderstorms to the Midwest.
