Areas of patchy to dense fog will be in the Heartland this morning due to all the moisture near the surface form the heavy rain the past few days and cooler temperatures in place. A dense fog advisory is in effect for some of our southern counties until 9AM. We will likely see sunshine during the first half of today, but thick clouds increasing quickly into the afternoon. High temperatures will range from the mid 40s north to the upper 40s south. Chances of light rain in our southern counties increase late tonight into tomorrow.
Friday is looking to be mild, but cloudy with scattered showers through the day. Rain will be picking up during the evening hours.
We are keeping a close watch on Saturday afternoon and evening for strong to severe storms. Central and southern portions of the Heartland are under an elevated risk and northern portions under a slight risk for severe weather. Strong winds and even an isolated tornado are possible. Flooding will still be a concern as some areas could see an additional 1-3” of rain.
