The warm front that was suppose to track through most of the area overnight stalled south of the viewing area. This limited development of storms overnight. The low also tracked farther west. The risk for severe weather has been downgraded for eastern Iowa but there is still a slight risk for severe storms.
Sunshine is started to show up in eastern Nebraska and western Iowa. This will be the area of main concern for severe storm development this afternoon. Storms could develop around the noon hour and later in western Iowa. Our severe weather threat will be dependent on what happens in south central Iowa and northern Missouri. Below are the current timing of storms through FutureTrack.
Our best chance of severe storms will be after 4 PM and most of them should track through after 6 PM if they can develop. The main threats will be large hail, damaging winds and heavy rain in our viewing area. The tornado threat will be highest in western Iowa. Be sure to stay with KWWL throughout the day and tonight for the latest severe weather information.
