Missouri River Flooding: Water levels are falling along some parts of the Missouri River, but they are still climbing downstream. Check out this blog for the latest information on where water levels are falling and how much higher other parts of the river will get.

Forecast: Skies will continue to clear overnight, and the heavy humidity from Tuesday moves south. We could see some patchy fog, especially in the river valleys. Lows will be near 60.

We get a quiet day to dry things out on Wednesday. It will be a mostly sunny day and a little warmer with highs in the mid 80s. However, spotty thunderstorms will be possible again Wednesday night.

Rain will become more likely on Thursday morning, with a number of showers and storms in the region through at least early Thursday afternoon, so have a backup indoor option for your 4th of July plans. It will be muggy again with low 80s in the afternoon. For now, it does look like things will start to dry out late in the afternoon over Nebraska, and early in the evening for Iowa, leading to drier conditions by fireworks time.

Most of us stay dry Friday. It will partly cloudy and breezy, with highs only in the upper 70s. We could find a few areas in the upper 50s by Saturday morning.

We warm back into the mid 80s Saturday, but it comes with a few spotty showers by the evening to avoid.

We'll continue to dodge some hit and miss storms Sunday with highs in the low 80s.

For now, the start of next week looks quiet, and more importantly, dry. Monday will be mostly sunny, in the mid 80s.
