It looks like we’ll be getting some storms this Saturday. Looking at the forecast and reading the detailed weather discussion it looks like the storms will mainly be coming early in the day around 8am and dispersing around 10-11am. There is a chance of some rain popping up later in the day but because of the cloud cover and early storms, they shouldn’t be severe. If you are heading out on the river tomorrow, I recommend reading up on river and storm safety. We have some great detailed information on both right here on our website. Also, come prepared so you can keep yourself and your gear dry!
Below is the detailed weather forecast for our region tomorrow.
A shortwave trough currently over Utah will move to the wrn Great Lakes by 18Z Sat. A good surge of 850-700 mb warm, moist advection will move across ern IA and srn WI Sat AM into the early afternoon. An organized but elevated line of showers and sct storms will move across the region with some weakening possible over ern WI. There will then be an opportunity for isold to sct storms late Sat afternoon and evening with the passage of a cold front. The lack of upper dynamics, weak convergence along the front, and lingering cloud cover from earlier in the day will likely limit the extent and intensity of the storms. Nwly winds and cold and dry air advection will then clear the skies from west to east during the late night hours.
