Less than 24 hours after dealing with strong to severe overnight storms, we are already talking about another chance for severe weather. The storm prediction center has issued a slight risk for severe storms for much of the state of Iowa. Today’s main risks will be large hail and damaging winds.
There is a chance of an isolated tornado threat early on, mainly across northern Iowa before storms line out. The greatest potential will be in the 10% outlined area or the darker purple shaded region in the graphic above.
Storms will form after 7pm across northern Iowa. Initially they will be isolated but then they will quickly merge together and will make a line of storms similar to last night. This line of storms will push to the southeast throughout the overnight hours bringing with it damaging winds and hail. Storms will then clear out of the state by early tomorrow morning setting up for a nice Wednesday before another potential of severe weather Wednesday evening. We will continue to track all of the severe weather chances and will bring you the very latest updates online throughout the afternoon and evening.
