Rain & Storms Coming Back

Severe Weather Awareness Week kicks off Monday

Unusually Cold, Windy and Snowy Stretch into Easter

But, rain showers late Saturday is in the forecast along with some snow overnight into early Easter Sunday. Scattered rain showers are expected on most areas. Expect lows in the lower 60s with highs in the 70s. Most of us are dry.

The unsettled pattern continues as a front looks to stall close to Siouxland this weekend. Your best chance to see wet weather will be late Wednesday afternoon and during the evening hours, through Thursday. Highs for this weekend, look to be in the upper 30's to low 40's.

As temperatures rise, the already high running creeks and streams will likely see some minor flooding. Heading into the weekend, we are still watching for shower chances.

The forecast for Thursday, March 29 calls for a mix of sun and cloud with a high of 13 C and a low of 1 C with a chance of showers.

All morning we'll have moderate to heavy rain spread across the area. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s and lows will be in the 40s.

This year, outlooks suggest we may have an average high of just 52 degrees through the first 10 days of April, with an average (overnight) low around 32 degrees. The beaches will stay on the cooler side of things with highs only in the mid 50s. Some models have it Saturday night into early Sunday, others time it Sunday evening into early Monday.

Some of these storms could strong or severe, with my main concerns coming in the form of a low risk of damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado or two.

EXTENDED: We'll have a cold, mostly cloudy start to the day Friday with morning lows in the low to mi d 30s. Partly cloudy skies throughout the day with temperatures well above average in the mid 60's.
