Large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes are possible across much of Iowa today. National Weather Service Meteorologist Kevin Skow says virtually the entire state is under the gun. “The greatest threat for severe weather extends across most of the central third of Iowa, with the greatest threat for tornadoes and large hail across northern Iowa, and then primarily large hail and some damaging winds across southern Iowa,” Skow says.
The storms are expected to pop up this afternoon. “It looks like the bulk of the severe weather…will be developing around 2 to 3 p.m. across west-central Iowa and then shifting to the east as the afternoon and evening progress onward,” Skow says. High temperatures are forecast between 75 and 85 today.
Skow says it’ll cool off more tomorrow. “We’re looking at generally cooler temperatures with a dry start to the weekend, but it looks like showers and thunderstorms return to the forecast on Sunday,” Skow says. High temperatures on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are expected to be mainly in the 60s and 70s.
