Good morning…and hello sunshine. We need about 12 days like today to get rid of the mini-Minnesota lake-land that is going on again in Iowa.
More on the flooding in a moment…. but we are happy to let you know that we are working with the Des Moines Register to bring you the forecast on the register weather page and on line at http://www.desmoinesregister.com/
This is a great friendship that has grown through the work of our sports teams and now has become a friendship with the paper the state of Iowa reads everyday.
You will see breaking weather details and the live Mega Doppler on the register’s home page and find the seven day in the paper with finer details of the next 24 to 48 hours. This is for you… another way for you to get the forecast each morning.
The flood map is looking better this morning. There are still many areas of flooding over the central Iowa area…extending into southeastern counties. There will be some improvement today… but then we hit another wet weather wall tomorrow night.
Heavy rainfall is going to come our way Wednesday night through Friday. It is looking better for the weekend.
Here is how we stack-up…or float-to-the-top right now.
Normal Rainfall for the month-to-date: 3.19″
Actual Rainfall for the month-to-date: 4.95″
Last years April rainfall to date: 5.82″
