253 PM CDT Fri Apr 28 2017

...Wet Weekend...

.DISCUSSION...The showers across northeast Iowa and southwest
Wisconsin will move out of the area this evening. A slow moving
storm system will start to advance northeast out of the lower
Plains States Saturday and is not expected to move into southern
Canada until Monday. Because of this system, there will be an
extended chance for rain from Saturday afternoon into Tuesday
morning. Widespread rainfall amounts of 1 to 1.5 inches are
expected from this system. Once this system is out of the area,
much of next week is then looking to be dry. Daytime temperatures
well into next week will be below normal.
