WXALERT: Tornado Watch for SW Iowa until Midnight

ww0108_overview_wou The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, OK has issued a tornado watch for a handful of counties in southwest Iowa until midnight.  Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop this evening, producing supercells capable of large hail, strong damaging winds and a few tornadoes.

There is a lot of turbulence in the atmosphere which is of most concern right now.  A long duration wind event is not anticipated as storms should stay in western Iowa during the overnight hours.  We are communicating with a chase team in western Iowa monitoring the situation there in case anything develops in the coming hours.
