Many parts of the QCA saw over 1″ of rain from Wednesday night’s storms.
Even more storms, some possibly severe, are headed our way later today.
A warm front will lift north through the area today.
Weather will vary a lot from one side of the front to the other. Clouds, plus 40s & 50s, will be commonplace north of the boundary this morning. As the front moves through, skies will clear, winds will gust out of the south, & temperatures will surge above 70°.
By this afternoon, a low pressure center arrives around Cedar Rapids. Strong storms will fire there around 4-6 PM, then push east through the evening.
All modes of severe weather are possible northwest of a line from Iowa City to Dubuque.
The storms will be running out of energy as they push into the QCA after 6 PM, so our biggest threat will be possible damaging winds.
Showers will linger into tomorrow morning, along with chillier daytime temperatures in the 40s.
