Meager chances for rain this week

By  | 

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Over the last 30 days, eastern Iowa is running 2’’ to over 3’’ below normal rainfall. This doesn’t include the deficit that was obtained over the rest of the summer.

We’ll get our first chance of rain for the month of September, this Saturday night and early Sunday morning. A cold front will be the cause, but showers and storms are expected to be isolated in coverage. This means not everyone will see the rain that is much needed. In fact, more areas may be dry than wet.

More high pressure looks to build in early next week, which means more dry conditions. However, signs of a slightly more active weather pattern are showing up in models for the second half of next week.
