Our next major chance for severe weather will arrive on Sunday. That’s the time that the Storm Prediction Center has posted a slight risk for severe weather over much of Iowa. Heat and humidity will aid in destabilizing the atmosphere over Iowa on Sunday, allowing storms to fire along a frontal boundary draped over the state.
This far out there is still a lot of uncertainty as to when and where storms will begin. If thunderstorms can fire before 7:00pm, there is a threat of isolated supercells capable of producing a tornado or two. After sunset the severe weather threat should continue, transitioning to a large hail and strong wind event.
We will continue to monitor the latest developments in the forecasts and bring you updates leading up to Sunday. If needed, we’ll launch our live coverage of Sunday if the conditions warrant.
