After some scattered showers & storms this evening, skies are now clearing.  With winds going light to calm tonight & all of the wet soils & low-level moisture around, areas of dense fog are likely.

This may persist to 7-8 a.m. tomorrow morning, but will then get mixed out as clouds increase & winds increase from the southeast at 6-12 mph.

Lows tonight will run in the 50s to near 60.

A wave of rainfall & some t'storms should pass mid-morning to early afternoon with temperatures near 60 to the mid 60s.

A brief break is possible afternoon with highs 67-74, followed by some scattered rainfall possible in the evening.

At this point, thinking any severe risk will set up southeast of our viewing area. 

It may clear some tomorrow night with lows 40s to 50, followed by sunshine, then increasing & thickening clouds during the day.  Highs will run 62-67.

Rainfall & some thunder & lightning will return late Friday evening-night with lows around 50 to the 50s.

Rain should depart around midday Saturday, followed by some clearing & highs 61-66.

Saturday night looks mostly clear & cool with lows 43-48.

Sunday looks dry with sunshine & 71-76.

Warm front will meander back & forth next week.  Rounds of showers & storms will occur.  Some severe risk & flash flooding risk will occur at times.

Temperatures will vary from 50s & 60s north to 70s & 80s south & sometimes everyone will reach 70s & 80s.  Other times, much of the area will be in the 60s.

Monday-Tuesday night:


Couple/few more rounds of showers & storms to May 17 with meandering warm front, then we break free!

It may cool off briefly, but substantially behind cold front, then the warmth is on!

Rainfall totals now-May 17 of 3-6" are likely area-wide with some isolated higher amounts.

River flooding will continue to late May & an extended period allowing for consistent corn planting will likely not arrive until after May 20.
