A cold front will continue to move through Eastern Iowa and drier and cooler air will move in through the night. The sky will clear and temperatures will fall into the 40's by Monday morning. On Monday, there will be more sunshine and it will be nice and comfortable. Temperatures will only rise into the low to mid 60's in the afternoon. This will be the story through much of the week: comfortable conditions, sunshine and cool temperatures.
The good news is that no rain is expected in at least the next 5 days in Eastern Iowa, so river crests should not be affected by any rainfall. However, major flooding is likely along many area rivers and we're continuing to provide coverage on air, online and on social media.
