A Little Bump in Iowa’s Road to Tranquility

day2otlk_0600 Yes, there are still chances of severe weather in Iowa’s future.  But nothing like we’ve seen the last several days.  Some quiet weather will persist at least through Friday Night before a warm front makes its way into the state.

This could touch of some thunderstorms, especially over northern parts of the state very late on Friday and into Saturday Morning.  The Storm Prediction Center has posted a slight risk for this threat.  But again, this is a relatively minor threat.

Once we see these storms pass, the blast furnace really ratchets up.  Temperatures across the state will reach or exceed 90 degrees on Saturday.  It will certainly be feel like the first official weekend of summer.

Of course it’s common to get a visit from a cold front shortly after a warm front visits the area.  That will happen late in the day on Sunday.  This might bear some watching for the potential of some strong storms.  While this sounds pretty active, that’s about all I have to report.  Next week looks much quieter as the pattern shifts a bit and we enjoy some quiet, and warm, summer weather.

We’ll continue to update the threats for Friday into Saturday and potentially Sunday night as well as those days draw closer.  For now, enjoy a very calm end to the week!
