Steady rain is expected all throughout Wednesday. Rain totals will range from 1-2″ with isolated higher amounts in southern Iowa where there is a better chance for thunderstorms.
One positive point about the steady rain is that flash flooding (a rapid rise in water) is unlikely. However, our already swollen rivers may swell a bit more, causing some minor flooding as the rain will continue to add to them. As always, do not cross a road that is covered by water.
Although cold and windy weather is ahead for Thursday, it will be a much drier day, and Friday looks even better as highs rise back into the 60s.
