Severe weather has barely materialized in areas of South Dakota. Meanwhile, here in Iowa, expected additional development never happened. Long story short, an atmospheric cap, especially strong, is preventing storms from firing over the state tonight. That cap is expected to remain in place throughout the night. This effectively ends much of the severe weather threat we thought would exist through the overnight hours.
It is still possible some strong storms could reach northwest Iowa later tonight, but the overall threat for severe has eased substantially. The focus now turns to Monday when strong storms could fire along a northward moving warm front that is expected to cross the state during the day tomorrow. We’ll have more on that threat tomorrow morning. For now, enjoy a good night’s sleep!
