Good morning, it is Tuesday, May 28.

First Alert Forecast

A flash flood watch will go into effect this afternoon.

Laura Wibbenmeyer says as the remnants of Alberto continue to build into the Heartland we could see 1-to-2 inches of rain between now and Wednesday. 

Rain chances go up during the afternoon and evening hours. The highest rain chances are in our southeast counties. Highs will get into the 80s where it’s dry, and only into the upper 70s where it rains.

Slightly cooler and drier air will move into the Heartland on Sunday and Monday.
