Bad Timing Limits Severe Threat

day1otlk_1300Barring redevelopment of thunderstorms early this afternoon, it appears the greatest threat for severe weather today lies to the east of Iowa.  The risk area does include extreme eastern Iowa but at this time the overall risk parameters do not look good.

If a new batch of thunderstorms can develop later this afternoon, portions of eastern Iowa could see a short window of strong storms, but again, the primary risk would come from strong damaging winds.  There is little threat of large hail and virtually no chance of thunderstorm development.

The good news with this push to the east is the passage of yet another cold front.  This should take much of the heat and humidity with it.  In fact, lows in the 40’s will be found in parts of Iowa Saturday Morning.  A good fall-like start to the college football season!
