Thunderstorms will develop across northwest Iowa late Monday afternoon ahead of a cold front and will track off to the southeast Monday evening. Some of these storms will be strong to severe, with damaging wind gusts and large hail the main threats. For more on that threat, click here. The secondary threat will be for heavy rain. Rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts in stronger storms will be possible. This may lead to a flash flooding threat, as this rainfall will fall only in a couple of hours.
As a reminder, if you see flooded roadways, make sure to turn around so you don’t drown. Continue to check back to the Iowa Storm Chasing Network on Facebook, Twitter and online at IowaChase.com for the latest updates.
