Storm Team 3: Get ready for a soggy few days

A very active weather pattern shows signs of heavy rainfall and the potential for severe weather

Active weather will continue for Friday with chances for showers and thunderstorms continue.

With high pressure lingering across the US-Canada border, an approaching low from the southwest will stall, bringing showers and storms to the area and across the lower Mississippi River Valley.

As the high slowly moves east, the rainy system will then slowly follow. Rain chances headline the entire weekend alongside cooler temps the further north you go.

Saturday features a very wide range of temperatures with some looking at the lower to middle 60s and those south of the IA-MN border getting into the 70s.

This will dictate our chances for severe development on Saturday - the warmer sector looking at the highest chances and the main threat being damaging hail and winds.

Sunday features a much lower chance for severe weather, but the soggy stretch will continue with scattered showers. Minor flooding will be possible near streams and rivers.
