A pacific storm system will move into the forecast area later Wednesday night, maximizing on Thursday with thunderstorms (some strong) and then ending early Friday. Details below…
An upper-level storm system will eject into the plains by late Wednesday with this being the first more notable storm system of the month. A classic northern plains upper-level low will set up with heavy wet snow on the northwest side into portions of the Dakotas. This will put the forecast area in the southeast quadrant of the low favorable for showers and thunderstorms later Wednesday night through the day Thursday. Strong south/southwesterly surface winds with gusts over 40+ MPH will help pull moisture from the gulf with the potential for a couple stronger storms across the east/southeast forecast zones late Thursday afternoon through early evening. The setup is conditional with limited dynamics so we will need to fine-tune this risk going forward with the main threat of hail.
The final forecast will follow soon so stay tuned to Iowa Storm Center.com for further updates.
