It’s not what we need right now, but we don’t have a choice. Our pattern of stormy days and nights will continue after a short break over the mid-week. Showers and thunderstorms will roll into Iowa early Friday morning. As these storms move through, an isolated wind gust or hail report reaching severe limits cannot be ruled out.
Eventually on Friday, these storms will push out of the area, setting the stage for another round of severe weather Friday afternoon and evening across Iowa. The graphic to the left shows the severe weather risk for Iowa on Friday.
This second round of severe weather will travel along a cold front that will pass through the state. This will again produce some significant rainfall over areas that really don’t need it. Flash Flooding, once again, is something that will have to be closely monitored.
Chances for showers and thunderstorms persist for several days over Iowa. This pattern will likely produce several round of severe weather over the state. A more significant shot at a severe weather outbreak will come on Monday. We are monitoring all these trends and will keep an eye on the situation throughout the night. We’ll also have a complete update on Friday’s severe weather threat in the morning.
