Severe Weather Possible In The Cedar Valley Today
Meteorologists are predicting the possibility of more severe weather in Iowa today. Forecasters say thunderstorms expected to move across the state this afternoon and tonight could produce torrential rain, gusty wind and tornadoes. The target time frame for the strongest storms is between 4 and 10 PM.
According to Brandon Marshall on CBS2:
Thunderstorms will fire in central Iowa and track into the eastern part of the state by late Thursday afternoon and evening. A strong-to-severe thunderstorm is possible with the main threat damaging wind gusts and heavy rainfall. Hail is also possible and can't completely rule out a brief spin up tornado although that appears to be a low threat.
The Storm Prediction Center has all of eastern Iowa in a SLIGHT RISK (level 2 of 5), which is the standard risk. This may get adjusted a bit depending on how storms layout and evolve Wednesday night through Thursday morning.
The severe outlook includes a chance for a tornado, strong wind and hail. As always, listen to us for more info.
