TRACKING: Severe storm potential and heavy rain

Scattered showers linger across northern Iowa from a line of storms that weakened earlier this morning.

These showers should dissipate for the early afternoon with otherwise partly sunny to cloudy skies through today. The further south you are, the more peeks of sun you should see. Warm, humid, and breezy conditions continue today with highs in the low to middle 80’s and a south southwest wind at 10 to 20 mph.

More storms will develop along the warm front in the northern half of the viewing area this evening and persist through tonight. The area of showers and storms has dropped slightly south to include Cedar Rapids.

Heavy rain and flash flooding will be a concern for these areas where multiple inches of rain could fall. Remember, turn around, don’t drown!

After some on and off showers and storms through early afternoon Thursday, a line of storms will roll through all of eastern Iowa on Thursday afternoon/evening off of a cold front.

These storms will also have the threat for severe weather with damaging wind gusts as a main concern as well as heavy rain.

It remains warm and humid with highs in the low to mid 80’s.

Stay weather aware the next couple of days! After Thursday’s cold front, temps are back down to the 70’s on Friday and Saturday with partly cloudy skies and breezy conditions.

Storms return Saturday night and Sunday morning. Humid conditions and middle 80’s will return Sunday and continue into next week.
