An active severe weather day to our north and west could filter into a night of severe thunderstorms across Iowa. A cold front draped over North and South Dakota will spark a round of severe weather today, producing strong winds, large hail and tornadoes. Some of those tornadoes in the Dakotas could be strong today.
Eventually, especially after sunset, it’s expected a line of strong storms will track into portions of western Iowa. The primary threat from these storms will be strong, damaging winds and large hail. The threat of tornadoes tonight across Iowa is very limited.
When all is said and done, this could lead to additional severe thunderstorm development across far eastern Iowa on Tuesday. Of course all of this is dependent on how things transpire tonight. We’ll continue to monitor tonight’s threat and bring you any updates as they come in.
