Supercells capable of producing tornadoes are expected to develop over Colorado, Kansas and Nebraska later today. Most of that is not anticipated to reach Iowa, but it’s the focal point of further development that will spread further east towards Iowa later tonight.’
The image to the right shows the risk for damaging winds tonight. Again the greatest risk for any severe weather lies in southwest Iowa. But storms could maintain their intensity for much of the night making things a little noisy through sunrise.
Several inches of rain could fall tonight and tomorrow on already saturated ground. And tonight’s storms do not mark the end of our stormy pattern.
More storms are possible on Tuesday and other rounds of rain are already in the forecast by week’s end. We’ll have much more on tomorrow’s threat for severe weather later this afternoon.
