As strong thunderstorms continue across parts of Iowa this morning, more severe weather could rear its ugly head later this afternoon and evening. This is especially bad news for areas trying to dry out from more than 13” of rain in some spots.
To the left is the slight risk area for Thursday from the Storm Prediction Center. You can see much of the state once again falls under this risk. And once again, the greatest threat will lie near a frontal boundary currently draped from west to east across the state of Iowa.
This boundary will serve as the focal point as the atmosphere once again destabilizes this afternoon. The primary threat from any storms that develop will be strong wind gusts, but much like last night, the threat of heavy rain will once again need to be closely monitored.
We’ll continue to monitor this situation and bring you further updates throughout the day.
