It has been another very humid day with dewpoints in the mid 70s. There is some relief on the way tomorrow. A cold front is pushing through northwest Iowa this afternoon. Here is the position of the cold front at 2 PM.

July 9 Cold Front
As the front crosses eastern Iowa this evening there will be a slight chance of storms. If a storm does develop, there is a chance it could be severe since the atmosphere is unstable enough for severe weather to develop. The Storm Prediction Center shows a slight risk of severe weather this evening for much of eastern Iowa.

Again keep in mind that IF storms do develop they may become severe. We will continue to track the front as it crosses the area this evening.

High pressure will move across the Midwest and provide us with dry weather through the rest of the week as well as relatively lower humidity levels. The dry weather is forecast to continue through early next week as a weak front will have little to no moisture to work with in generating showers/storms.
