A cool, soggy and dreary end to the weekend in eastern Iowa
The weekend unfortunately got off to a cool and soggy start. However, much of the same is expected for Sunday.
An area of low pressure will lift northward into the area late Saturday night leading to additional widespread rainfall. There could be pockets of heavy rain as the storm and stronger dynamics arrive. Winds will be brisk out of the east with gusts up to 30 mph.
Rain will be ongoing Sunday morning as the storm continues to lift northward into Wisconsin. Rain will gradually wind down and become more spotty during the afternoon hours.
High temperatures will climb into the 40s and 50s with most areas achieving that late morning/early afternoon before colder air starts to move in behind the storm with readings slowly falling.
The next system will arrive on Monday bringing additional chances of rain. The morning and most of the early afternoon will be dry with rain moving in late afternoon and evening. Any lingering showers will end Tuesday morning.
However, winds on the backside will increase with gusts of 35+ mph possible. They will be out of the northwest adding a chill to the air.
High temperatures will be in the 40s early in the day with falling readings likely as colder air gets established setting up a chilly Election Day.
Between the weekend storm and the Monday one, weather models do indicate total amounts of one inch or more are possible.
