September 10, 12:30 PM Weather Forecast Update

Here is your latest forecast update now to early October.

As of Tuesday, discontinuous drought was found from the High Plains through the Corn Belt & then across New England.  The worst of it is in west-central Iowa & westward.

Northeast White & Carroll through Pulaski, Fulton, Cass & part of Miami counties are classified in a Moderate Drought, though recent rainfall has helped.  Longer-term rainfall deficits since spring in that zone are upwards of 6", resulting in low lake levels & continued lack of better subsoil moisture. 

Other than Clinton & Howard to Boone counties, much of the rest of the area is considered Abnormally dry based on those longer-term deficits since spring & such high evaporation over the summer, which was the hottest since 2012 or 1995 in the area.

___________________________________________________________________________________________

Fog & low overcast through this morning & midday with give way to some cloud breakage this afternoon.  Mostly cloudy skies & highs around 70 to as high as 80 seem reasonable with northeast winds 12-27 mph.

It looks mostly cloudy tonight with lows 58-63, followed by partly cloudy skies Friday with highs of 75-80 with an east-northeast wind at 10-20 mph.

Friday night looks mostly cloudy with lows 56-62 with an east wind at 10-15 mph.

Wind will go from southeast to south to southwest on Saturday at 10-15 mph.  With partly to mostly cloudy skies, some scattered showers & storms are possible in the late afternoon & through evening.  Coverage should peak Saturday night night at 50%.

Highs of 80-85 are likely.

Wind fields support a few severe storms north & northeast of our viewing area at this point.

It appears that any scattered rainfall on Sunday will be confined to the morning, followed by clearing skies, west winds at 8-16 mph & highs 80-85. 

At this point, next week continues to look completely dry & nice with highs 76-83 early in the week, then 82-88 by mid-week. Dry frontal passage Thursday should bring 75-81 to end the week.  Sunshine will dominate.  Overnight lows in the 50s will also dominate with even a few 40s late week.

Following this, the next potential of any sort of rainfall would be Tuesday, September 22 & even that looks spotty.
