It’s been a stormy, rainy day across the southern two-thirds of Iowa and the wet weather is expected to hang around the next couple days. National Weather Service Meteorologist Jeff Johnson says estimates of up to two inches of rain have been reported through Cass, Guthrie, Dallas, Polk, Story and Marshall Counties.
“Basically from north of Atlantic, up toward west of Ames and on toward Tama County – we had a band of heavy precipitation,” Johnson said. “We had 1.79 inches in Marshalltown.” A Flash Flood Warning was posted earlier today across the region. Some minor storm damage has been reported in the Jasper County town of Sully.
More heavy rain is possible south of Highway 30 tonight. Rain remains in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday. There’s a chance for drier weather this weekend. “Right now, we’re looking fairly dry and comfortable (for the weekend) with temperatures in the 70s,” Johnson said.
