A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect through 10 AM on Monday. Storms will push through the state during the next 24 hours that will bring heavy rain at times leading to urban street flooding and rapid rises of water in ditches, creeks and streams around Central Iowa.
Morning rain and thunderstorms have pushed through Central Iowa. Rain fall amounts range from 1″ in Atlantic to .36″ in Des Moines. Indianola received just more than .6″.
The morning rain has stabilized the atmosphere and it may be hard for it to de-stabilize enough for many storms to re-fire and reach severe limits. The best chance of strong to severe storms has shifted to far southern, eastern, and southeastern Iowa. Those storms will fire later this afternoon. There is still a chance a few storms may re-develop in Central Iowa later today.
Temperatures will stay in the 80s for daytime highs.
Tomorrow, a warm front will lift back up through the state. This front will give us another chance for strong storms Monday afternoon and evening. Temperatures will reach the low 90s on Monday afternoon.
