*FLOOD WARNING* remains in effect for SW Winnishiek county through mid-morning Friday. *RIVER FLOOD WARNINGS* are in effect until further notice for the Upper Iowa River at Dorchester/Hwy 76... and for the Kickapoo River at Steuben. The good news is water levels are falling.
It was much drier, cooler and less humid today- which was much needed! We saw some debris clouds thanks to an area of rain that moved by to our south, but overall it was a pretty pleasant Thursday. Highs topped out in the upper 70s to low 80s.
The clouds will continue to clear tonight and temperatures will be cooler. Lows will drop into the mid to upper 50s. Patchy fog will be possible late tonight.
High pressure builds into the Upper Midwest Friday. Expect some sunshine, but temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than we saw today. Highs tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 70s.
Looking Ahead... The clouds will be back on the increase late in the day Friday and Friday night ahead of our next storm system. The chance of showers and thunderstorms will move in from southwest to northeast after midnight.
Showers and thunderstorms will be likely Saturday. We're not expecting any severe weather in terms of large hail, damaging winds or tornadoes... but there is the potential for some heavy rain. We'll have to watch northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin closely during this time frame. Highs Saturday will be in the mid to upper 70s.
Clouds decrease Sunday and temperatures will be a bit warmer. Highs Sunday will be in the low 80s. There's a small chance of a shower or a storm, but most will remain dry for the second half of the weekend.
Temperatures climb into the low to mid 80s through the upcoming workweek and into next weekend. Small chances of rain will be with us during this time as well.
Have a great night! -Michelle Poedel
