WXUPDATE: Too Stable for Fireworks

day1otlk_1630Yesterday we talked about a threat for severe weather today, especially for western portions of Iowa.  But as of late this morning, that threat has vanished.  Showers and thunderstorms are still possible today, but a lack of instability in the atmosphere is leading the Storm Prediction Center to believe there is little if any threat for severe weather. 

As you can see in the graphic to the left, the threat for severe weather today should stay to the southwest of Iowa and far west in areas of Montana and the Dakotas.

As is the case with any thunderstorms, dangerous conditions can form, but no widespread or organized severe weather threat is forecast to materialize across Iowa this afternoon or evening.

The same cannot be said for tomorrow, as another storm system is scheduled to threaten Iowa with severe weather.  We’ll have more on that threat later this afternoon.
