The Storm Prediction Center has increased the risk of severe weather across portions of southeast Iowa Monday afternoon. Numerous severe storms are expected starting late afternoon and continuing into tonight across the central states.
Scattered storm development is expected by mid afternoon. A few supercells will be possible briefly, before quickly lining out along the cold front. All hazards of severe weather appear possible, including the threat for isolated tornadoes. Further to the south across Missouri, eastern Kansas, and northwest Arkansas, that is where the greatest threat for tornadoes will exist. Some of which could be strong to long-lived.
Besides the risk of tornadoes in the state, damaging wind gusts up to 70-mph will also be possible. Hail will be a secondary threat today, however, hail could get up to the size of quarters in the stronger storms.
