Here is a look at rainfall totals over the last 12 hours. Areas across central to especially southern Iowa cashed in on some healthy rain amounts. We did even have some localized areas across southern Iowa that ended up with 4-6″ of rain. Overall the forecast when well on rain amounts.
Here is a look at the severe weather outlook with the primary focus across the southeast part of the state. The dynamics today are more organized then yesterday to support all modes of severe weather. This includes large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
We should see storms develop roughly 6-8 PM between central and eastern Iowa and this will move east/southeast into Illinois this evening. Again, similar to yesterday I think the forecast radar below is struggling to show the big picture.
The amounts with this round will once again be the highest where these storms develop with 0.50-1.50″ and localized 2″+ of rain. The highest rain totals will be across extreme southeast Iowa where training of storms will take place increasing rainfall amounts.
