Today's Forecast

Well after yesterday's absolutely beautiful weather, we have another pretty nice day set up for us. Expect a lot less wind this afternoon, but we will keep plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 70s. Tonight we are going to have mostly clear skies again, and more mild evening temps with lows in the mid 50s. Wednesday is still our first best chance for having severe weather, especially that evening. Thunderstorms will develop in eastern Nebraska and far western Iowa late in the afternoon and early evening, then a line of thunderstorms should move through central Iowa during the night. Our main threat is still mainly wind especially in western Iowa and early in the event with some large hail possible, and a few places will see heavy rain move through. Much of Iowa can expect to get around an inch of rain, but plenty of places are going to see totals approach the 2 inch mark, and while flooding isn't a major concern since we've been so dry, we are still going to get a good soak. We remain cooler and dry through the weekend. --Local 5 Meteorologist Sam Schreier
