Cool and rainy weather is the story of the week here in Iowa. But that doesn’t mean severe weather is out of the question. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK posted a slight risk for portions of southern Iowa. The slight risk goes into effect on Wednesday.
It appears a warm front will swing north into the state from Missouri. The strongest threat for severe weather stay to our south, with storms expected to push into Iowa later in the evening on Wednesday. Large hail appears to be the primary threat at this time, but strong, damaging winds and an isolated tornado are also possible Wednesday.
Besides this threat, there are few other storms setting up in the near future across Iowa. We’ll keep an eye on some storms systems that could develop over the next two weeks. Overall across the Midwest the pattern remains active, which is expected for this time of year.
We’ll continue to monitor Wednesday’s threat across Iowa and update the threat this afternoon as the SPC issues a new outlook.
