Heavy rain will lift through Central Iowa today. An additional 1″ to 1.5″ is likely across the state by Monday afternoon. Temperatures will hold in the 40s. Winds will be brisk from the east-northeast. Some colder air will wrap around with the low early Monday. A few snowflakes will mix in with rain, mostly over western and northwestern Iowa, but precipitation looks to remain all rain over central Iowa.

We will finally start to see improvement on Tuesday with a return to sunshine and warmer temperatures in the 60s. The weather will continue to improve with sunny and drier conditions through next weekend.
