Storms This Evening, Then Rain Overnight
Isolated Strong to Severe Storms are Possible Through 9 PM
Published Saturday, March 28 at 5:07 PM
Good evening… we are watching a powerful low pressure system moving across Iowa. As we head into tonight, look for this system to track northeast through the area. It will produce scattered showers and t-storms across the area this evening. Some of these storms may be strong to severe, with large hail the main threats. The area most likely to see strong to severe storms will be along and south of I-90. Later this evening, look for storms to move out of the area by 9 PM, however, moisture wrapping around the back side of the low will bring periods of rain to the area from late tonight into tomorrow morning. There could even be a few snowflakes mixing in late tonight across far northern sections of the area. Look for lows in the middle 30s to lower 40s.
We’ll start Sunday with lingering showers, but they should end by midday. The rest of the day looks cloudy and breezy. Northwest winds will blow between 15 and 25 mph, with gusts near 40 mph in open areas. Look for highs to range from the lower 40s to near 50.
Looking ahead… The new week looks a bit more tame. Expect partly to mostly sunny skies most days. The exceptions are Wednesday and Friday, when we could see a few showers. The warmest day of the week appears to be Monday, when we’ll see highs well into the 50s. The rest of the week looks more seasonable, with highs in the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Have a great night. –WKBT Cory Malles
