Storms Approaching

A thunderstorm complex has developed over southern Minnesota and northern Iowa tonight, and is moving east toward the Mississippi River. It will likely arrive after midnight, and some severe weather is possible. Heavy rain should be the bigger threat, however, what with the copious amounts of moisture in the atmosphere. A flash flood watch in effect for counties north and west of here, where two to four inches of rain could fall. Could be an active night, but with the way things have been going lately I wouldn't be surprised if all the rain somehow manages to bypass us. That seems to have been the pattern lately.

The cold front will move through tomorrow, effectively putting an end to the heat and humidity. The mercury rose to 95 degrees this morning before the clouds rolled in, but it remains quite humid this evening. Nine straight days of 90+ temperatures has come to an end.
