The cold front that brought severe weather to Minnesota last night will be the key player for additional strong to severe storms across east/southeast Iowa later this afternoon. Read on for the full details including timing on storms…
A cold front will continue to slide across the state this morning with a current round of showers and thunderstorms along the I-80 corridor. Temperatures out ahead of the front are expected to surge into the upper 80s this afternoon which will help boost instability to 2-4k promoting a risk for severe storms from the middle to late afternoon time frame. The early thinking is strong storms developing across the southeast part of the state by around 3-4 PM this afternoon and pushing east into Illinois fairly quickly.
The wind at 5,000 FT above the surface does promote the risk for damaging winds but that said an additional threat will be large hail. The severe weather outlook and forecast radar are below.
