It’s not expected to be the most organized round of showers and thunderstorms, but with increasing instability over Iowa, the Storm Prediction Center has posted another slight risk. This time most of Iowa is included in the risk.
Once again, areas of Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska will once again be the focus for storm chasers. Here in Iowa we’re looking at more general severe weather. Anything that does reach severe limits has the ability to produce strong, damaging winds and large hail. An isolated tornado or two is also possible.
Looking further ahead, the Upper Midwest remains rather storm through the weekend. Another slight risk is posted for Saturday, this time the bulk of the strong storms in our area should be confined to southern portions of the state. Sunday another threat is posted for areas south and west of Iowa.
After this weekend things should settle down a little bit, but a couple of disturbances next week will bear some watching, although nothing too ominous right now.
Unfortunately, if things get hairy tonight I will not be able to provide much information for you. It is June and my committments on the weekend continue to build. For that I apologize but I hope you understand that few have every weekend off this time of year (especially with weddings, etc). If storms develop and threaten your area, as always, be sure to tune into your favorite television or radio station for up to date information.
