Another One of those Rain Events

Good Monday bloggers,

Well, here we go again and again and again and again. This next rain event for tonight and Tuesday is turning into a scattered event and the trend is toward less rain as we get closer to it. Sound familiar?

Here is our latest thinking.

A cold front is drifting south across the Plains and it is a decent front. But, it will become more ill-defined as it heads south which means our rain will be more disorganized. At least we will cool off  Tuesday into Wednesday.


Here are the disturbances we are tracking as of 4 PM Monday. They will move east into our region later tonight and move out Tuesday morning. These hold our best rain chances for the next 7 days.


TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT: You can see the heaviest showers and T-Storms are located in southern Iowa. The I-70 corridor has just a few yellow spots, meaning not many heavy rain areas. South of I-70, there is barely any rain.


TUESDAY: The showers and T-Storms will exit during the morning, leaving a few showers behind during the afternoon. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s as the sun begins to peek out.


RAINFALL FORECAST: This is a JOKE! Rainfall amounts will be trace to 1″ with the least south of I-70. As it stands now, the heaviest rain looks to occur from southern Iowa to northern Indiana where they are not in drought conditions. It would be nice to shift this thing south by 100-200 miles. It could happen at the last minute, but unlikely. If it does, we will update the blog. We will know later this evening if this could happen.


A few showers and T-Storms may pop up Wednesday as a second system moves by, but overall we are looking dry into early next week after Tuesday.

Tomorrow is election day, remember to vote.

Have a great night.
