After what is expected to be a terrible day of severe weather across the central United States, A smaller risk of severe weather is taking shape for the eastern half of the state. Once again, much of the focus will be to the south of Iowa, where better instability and dynamics exist. But if the atmosphere over Iowa recovers fast enough from Saturday Night’s storms, a new round of strong to severe thunderstorms could develop Sunday afternoon.
The greatest threat lies in the eastern part of Iowa, especially northeast Iowa. This is where ingredients could be in place for another round of all modes of severe weather, large hail, strong damaging winds and tornadoes. This threat is still 3 days out at the time of this posting and will need to be closely monitored once we get past Saturday’s event.
Beyond Sunday, things will stabilize behind this storm system with much cooler air rushing in. We’ll plan on updating the forecast for Sunday on Saturday Morning.
