Significant Severe Sunday 5/10

Severe Weather Outlook Day 2 Iowa

The enhanced risk of severe storms on Sunday has shifted a little bit from this mornings update. But the potential still remains for large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

To start off, a round of storms will will move into southwest Iowa around 5am Sunday morning and will move off to the northeast. This line of storms will have the possibility for damaging winds and possibly an isolated tornado.

After this round of storms moves to the northeast, clearing will begin to take place across the state, which will begin to make the atmosphere unstable. Storms will begin to form after 3pm Sunday across western Iowa. This line of storms will be tracking off to the east. This second round will have the greatest tornado potential. Right now it appears that the area for the greatest tornado potential will be across northwest Iowa, closer to the surface low. However, anyone in the enhanced risk, needs to be on high alert tomorrow as tornadoes will be possible in this area.

We will have multiple chase teams out in the field tomorrow including a live stream. ISCN’s Zach Sharpe will be in the studio tomorrow along side KCCI 8 news meteorologists, and will be providing frequent updates.

  1. Traveling north on 35 this afternoon from KC to Des Moines. When would you expect the Storms to push through this area? Will tornadoes be likely? Thank you for your help.
