Scattered showers and thunderstorms rumbled their way northward
through the first part of the night, in advance of a warm front
lifting into northern Iowa. Rainfall across southeast Minnesota and
western Wisconsin was on the lighter side, while some heavier
amounts of 1 to 2 inches occurred over parts of northeast Iowa.
Temperatures remained mild through the night, holding in the upper
50s to middle 60s.
The warm front to our south this morning will lift through the area
today, allowing for another warm and humid day as temperatures top
out in the upper 70s to lower 80s. An approaching cold front is
expected to deliver increasing chances for showers and thunderstorms,
especially this afternoon and evening, a few of which could be
strong, producing small hail, gusty winds, and localized very heavy
Rain chances will dwindle later tonight into Wednesday morning, with
dry, cooler, and noticeably less humid conditions making an
appearance Wednesday into Thursday.
