Good Monday, everyone. A potent storm system is working across the Mississippi River Valley, and it’s throwing another wild day of weather our way. High winds, heavy rain and big temperature swings are all on the way.
The ground is saturated and can’t hold much more, but we have more on the way Monday. This is an impressive storm bringing more showers and storms our way:
That band of showers and storms will have a lot of moisture to work with and could put down another 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts. Watch for local high-water problems during the afternoon and evening.
It’s also going to be another day of huge temperature swings:
High winds will be a concern Monday and Monday night. Those gusts might top out at 40 mph or greater.
We will have to watch one more potential rain-maker on Wednesday before colder air blows in to usher in the new year:
That could be accompanied by a few snow flurries.
Before we can get there, we have some wild weather to track:
Have a great day and take care.
