Stuck in a Rut

This rain just will not go away.  We're at the brink of pushing rivers over the edge and more is on the way tonight.  A flash flood watch is in place for some west of I35 as the rain with the heaviest impact falls there Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.  1-3" widespread is possible with totals significantly trailing off less than 1" east of the interstate and north of the MN/IA border.  The target zone is for sure over north Iowa tonight.

The rain isn't necessarily potent, just persistent.  A few rumbles of thunder are possible but those should remain few and far between.  A stationary frontal boundary to the south is serving as a focus for rain moving in and given its stagnant nature, the waves keep coming. 

Showers loiter for Friday but are non-impactful and shouldn't ruin your plans should you want to pop outside.

Temperatures continue to be greatly impacted as long as the gray hangs around.  Any significant sunshine isn't anticipated until Saturday.  That's when we'll see the largest pop in temperatures too.
