Clouds have moved in and are here to stay through the night tonight. Showers will continue to develop and move through eastern Iowa through the night. A few isolated thundershowers will be possible overnight as well. Rain could be heavy at times and could lead to accumulations between 0.5 to 1.5 inches area wide. Rain will come to an end midday Wednesday but the clouds will stay. Temperatures will only climb into the upper 40s and low 50s where the heavier rain likely sets up, near and north of Highway 20. Further down to the south, temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s and even close to 60.
It will be calm, cool and comfortable with temperatures in the low 40s Thursday morning and only climbing to the low to mid 50s Thursday afternoon. The cool air kicks the can on briefly during the end of the week and warm air moves back in. Temperatures could even surpass the 70 degree mark on Friday afternoon and on Saturday in spots. There will be some ups and downs next week with cooler air Sunday and another little warm up possible on Monday. After Wednesday, the weather will be mostly dry in eastern Iowa through Tuesday of next week.
