DES MOINES, Iowa – Another round of active weather brought more than an inch of rain to parts of Iowa Tuesday.

According to Meteorologist Megan Salois, the storms Tuesday morning dumped 1-3″ of rain in parts of western and north-central Iowa.

Salois said that we’ll see calm conditions before another round of storms early Wednesday morning. High temperatures Tuesday will be in the lower 80s under partly sunny skies. An isolated shower may develop during the afternoon into the early evening hours.

The next complex of rain and thunderstorms to cross the state is expected Wednesday morning between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m. Wednesday. The latest model data shows the path of the storms bringing the highest rain totals in southwest Iowa. There will still be pockets of heavy rain, thunder and frequent lightning. Rainfall totals will vary from a .25” to 2”.  A few western counties, including Audubon and Carroll counties, will be in a Flash Flood Watch from 1 a.m. to 10 a.m. because they all ready received high rainfall amounts early Tuesday and the ground is saturated. The final storm complex moves in after midnight on Thursday morning. This again will bring more heavy rain, thunder and frequent lightning, as well as another 1 to 2” of rainfall.

The active weather is due to a stationary front sitting right across Central Iowa. Salois said the active weather pattern should quiet briefly this weekend but more thunderstorm chances return early next week.

  • IMVU Hack,

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both
    equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.

    Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this.
