ISC Severe Thunderstorm Watch

IowaStormCenter.com has issued a SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH for areas shaded above.

Date: 3/29/22 at 9:45am CT

Timing: Effective this evening through late tonight….

Discussion: A surface low is currently stationed over northwest Kansas this morning and will work its way northeast into parts of Eastern Nebraska by late in the day. We should see some clearing in the cloud cover by later this afternoon across western Iowa which will help build some instability. That said, the area will remain capped through the afternoon to early evening time frame preventing any storm development. The latest thinking is that storm initiation can happen after 6 PM across western Iowa along the front and dryline near the the surface low. If storms can become surfaced based across southwest and central Iowa, a isolated tornado threat could occur but it is unclear if that will actually happen. The MUCAPE values would suggest that the main threats will be large hail and damaging winds with an isolated tornado not completely ruled out. A severe thunderstorm watch means that conditions are favorable for severe weather.
