We are continuing to track the storms in southwest Iowa this evening. Storm chasers Jason Walerius and Brian Travers were in the Nebraska City area when nickel sized hail hit them. That sized hail is no longer considered to be severe, but it’s close. Storms are expected to rapidly increase in coverage area across southwest and central Iowa as the storms intensify. It is unclear at this moment whether the storms will maintain their intensity after sunset, but at this time that appears possible.
