WXALERT: Watch Under Consideration for Western Iowa

mcd1589It’s hard not to feel like we could see a repeat scenario of last night, fingers crossed the odds will stay on our side.  At the very least, the Storm Prediction Center is monitoring a strong line of thunderstorms in Nebraska.  As a result, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch may be issued for portions of western Iowa within the next couple of hours.

Conditions in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa are favorable for strengthening of this line.  At this hour the storms are moving to the east at approx. 40mph.  Any strengthening and acceleration of the line could increase the threat for another strong, damaging wind event in parts of Iowa tonight.

We are monitoring the latest radar trends and will bring you updates when/if needed.
