Heavy Rain in NE Iowa, Some Flooding

 

Updated: Sunday, April 20 @ 10:45 p.m.

Easter Sunday was pleasant for the Corridor, but northeastern Iowa has seen a steady diet of showers and thunderstorms. Those storms are producing heavy rain from Charles City to Decorah with more than two inches of rainfall already Sunday evening. Some areas could reach three inches of rainfall before the storms weaken overnight. A FLOOD ADVISORY is in effect until 12:45 a.m. Monday for Charles City, Decorah, Oelwein, and surrounding areas. Flooding of local creeks, streams, and low-lying roads is possible. If you encounter flood waters, do not drive through them.

The showers and storms will decrease in northeastern Iowa overnight, but new storms will start to develop along Highway 20 and the Corridor. Rainfall won't be as heavy though south of Highway 20 with most areas seeing 0.25" to 0.75" of moisture. Storms continue through Monday afternoon with highs in the low 70s. Skies will begin to clear Monday evening with winds gusting up to 25 mph. Cooler weather moves in Tuesday with highs dropping into the mid 60s.
