Cold front coming!

exactrack1A cold front is touching off some showers (and perhaps a few rumbles) in Eastern Iowa right now. This could seriously throw a wrench into our planned 50° temperatures on Friday. The present placement of the front is about as far east as it was supposed to go. However, the front sprouted showers and these showers are moving northeast. The showers will in turn nudge the front along to the east during the overnight hours.

So, the big question is where will this front be tomorrow. If it’s east of us, we’ll only have high temperatures in the upper 30s. If it stalls to our west along the Mississippi River some middle 50s will be possible. In all likelihood it’ll probably end up right over us which will keep northern and western locales cold while our southeastern sections stay mild and soupy. Note: all of the precip will stay ahead of the front so if it comes through, we’ll be dry during the day on Friday.

Meteorologist Aaron Brackett will have the analysis in the morning. Have a great night! -ES

    As for after the front coming through, does the NWS issue any kinds of headlines for flash freezes, or do they usually remain as low impact events?
