Thunderstorms Return to Iowa This Afternoon

radarA bit of an afternoon surprise for some in southeast Iowa.  After a rainy and dreary looking morning, enough instability surfaced this afternoon to produce this line of general to strong thunderstorms. At this time it is not expected to produce any severe weather but there are reports of a few strikes of lightning.  Just a good garden variety thunderstorm to remind you that yes, this is spring.  And storms can pop up any time here in Iowa.

Looking further ahead the pattern is shifting and Iowa will begin to see warmer conditions in the days and weeks ahead.  There might even be a returning threat of severe weather in the not too distant future.  More on that later tonight…
