This week’s weather is a classic wet pattern for June

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - The overall weather situation this week is one that is notorious for producing multiple rounds of heavy rainfall. We are on the northern side of a stationary front this week, keeping us generally in the 70s for highs. As low pressure systems move along and just south of the front, the risk will be there for bouts of rain, some of which will be heavy and may lead to flash flooding. That could possibly turn into river flooding depending on where the heaviest rain falls and how much.

Areas outlined in dark red are at highest risk for flooding this week. Rainfall totals may exceed three inches by the time the week is over. Isolated amounts over five inches are possible where storms move over repeatedly. We’ll need to keep an eye on our rivers for possible flood issues.
