The Storm Prediction Center is monitoring much of western Iowa for the threat of large hail and strong damaging winds. As a result, the SPC is considering issuing a watch for this area. While hail and winds are the primary threat, as storms evolve into a more organized cluster, a tornado threat may increase. You can see the area at risk highlighted in the graphic to the left. We are monitoring this threat and will bring you the very latest as we get it.
