With warm and muggy conditions over Iowa today, something’s got to give. And that something is a cold front that will push through the state tonight. The Storm Prediction Center has placed most of Iowa under a slight risk for severe weather today and tonight.
At this time it appears the threat for severe weather in the region will really get going sometime after 4pm. Storms that develop along the cold front will turn severe, capable of strong winds, large hail and an isolated tornado or two. The greatest threat for tornadoes exists over portions of Minnesota and Canada, closer to the center of the storm system.
We will continue to monitor tonight’s situation. At this time there are no plans to stream live video from the field, but you can always find the latest severe weather information in our real-time ticker feed system on our live coverage page.
