It’s going to be a pretty nice, early spring day across eastern Iowa. We will have a partly cloudy sky with high temperatures in the middle 60s to lower 70s. The wind will be north/northeast 5-10 mph.
A warm front will begin to lift north through the state tonight, which could lead to a few showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather is not expected, but some storms that develop may have some small hail with them. Lows drop into the 40s and 50s as the wind picks up out of the east/southeast.
Where the warm front ends up Wednesday will be the key to where the best potential for severe weather sets up. There may be a few storms in the morning, but most of the daytime hours will be dry. As we get past 4 p.m. the threat of showers and thunderstorms increases, and will continue through the overnight hours.
The overall severe risk is low, and will mainly be south of Waterloo. Large hail is the primary risk with damaging gusts possible. There is a very small risk for a tornado. It will be a trend that we continue to monitor throughout the day.
On the back side of the system, it will be windy and cooler Thursday. There will likely be lingering showers in our eastern counties.
Temperatures warm up Friday through the weekend, with a slight chance for a shower or thunderstorms Eastern Sunday afternoon.
