The latest outlooks from the Storm Prediction Center shows a welcomed break from the rain for Iowa this afternoon and evening. After a round of storms rolled through during the late morning and early afternoon hours, things should stay quiet for a few hours.
Tonight, more storms could move in from the west bringing a slight risk of strong winds and large hail. The threat for tornadoes is expected to stay to our west. Once again this could produce a stormy overnight for much of the state and we’ll certainly monitor that risk.
As you can see to the right, the risk for strong winds hasn’t moved much, which follows the lack of movement in a boundary lingering near the Iowa/Missouri border. This is expected to be the area that stands the best chance to see severe weather tonight.
Coming up alter this afternoon, we’ll go over tomorrow threat which poses a bigger threat to parts of Iowa. More on that later…
