10:15 pm
1851. the odds are very very small. this is happening and as i mentioned we do have some historical records that could be coming down the line, we are here to detail. in fact we did see a 2000 record fall today. what we want talk about are some of the crest. all of the water that tell up to the north of us in the last 48 hou downstream. many rivers in eastern iowa are about flood gauge and in some cases was to all-time record levels. one of the rivers that will take the brunt of it is the cedar river. in cedar falls tomorrow the crest is expected to a core -- occur very rapidly. the question waterloo is excited saturday evening at around

10:17 pm
by now the river is flashed around 10 foot. you would never know anything is happening to the north of us. it really stays that way all the way through the day tomorrow. then, at about 8:00 tomorrow night here comes the crest starting to search southward, in 48 hours time the river goes from 10 to 25.31 feet in cedar rapids. that is when all the problems will be down. you will notice the crest is not last long wave water quickly passes them by the time we get to friday the river should be back down to around 12 feet. that is here's the radar tonight. no heavy rain fell he found her in the state of iowa. it's been a long time since that happen. it is all well to the north of us tonight. we'll keep the forecast right through tomorrow. here is a predictor of 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning. clouds are expected around eastern iowa maybe some patchy fog thanks to the moisture.
10:18 pm
we should have a decent day. after 6:00 in the evening watch what our model shows. another one of showers and thunderstorms showing up along a cold front. there is a chance of some tattered pockets of heavy rain. it does look to be brief. eventually that will move into the northeast pretty quickly. by 6:00 a.m. sunday morning the worst will be gone. after that just clouds to go through on sunday. as the worst of the rain has moved off to the east of us. our latest indications are that the brain in general should be like your in eastern iowa. we are forecasting about 4/10 of an inch of rain in cedar rapids and if we can keep it to that level it will impact the crest. tonight, it is quiet and will stay that way. partly cloudy to cloudy skies. areas of fog flow temperatures in the 60s across the area. for tomorrow we will have fog, later in the date should turn partly sunny. temperatures will be from 77 in decorah 281 in waterloo as you
