Highs tomorrow will only be in the low to mid 40s with the cold rain and windy conditions. The main batch will move in by tomorrow morning with the leading edge, and rain will continue to fall all day long. Drier air moves in with scattered showers by Wednesday night and Thursday. At least an inch of rain is possible, with other locations receiving even more. However, the heaviest rain will fall in eastern Iowa and Illinois. Rain moves out by Thursday with drier conditions and warmer temperatures. Highs will climb into the 60s with sunshine on Friday.
