Temperatures Sunday fell just shy of 60° in Rockford, but we could very well break the 60° mark this afternoon. Unfortunately, we've got a bit more cloud cover than what we had yesterday. This is all due to a very powerful low pressure system moving through the middle of the country bringing blizzard conditions to parts of North Dakota and spring-like weather to Iowa, Missouri and Illinois.
Ahead of low pressure in Nebraska, showers have been developing through Iowa back southward into Missouri and will continue to lift north into Minnesota through the morning and early afternoon. A few of the showers have had some embedded thunder, but nothing severe as of yet. Later today, thunderstorms in Iowa could produce small hail and stronger wind gusts ahead of a cold front that will clear the Stateline after 10pm tonight.
