The Storm Prediction Center is considering issuing a watch for portions of northern and western Iowa. You can see the area under the immediate risk in the graphic to the left. A cold front is making its way through the state, already reaching portions of northwest Iowa.
Storms are already ongoing in the area, but with a cap in the area expected to erode, storms should intensify over the next 1-3 hours. If a watch is issued we expect it to come rather soon so keep it here. We’ll post the very latest once a watch is issued.
When severe weather begins here in Iowa, we’ll launch our live coverage here on iowachase.com
