We saw some severe thunderstorms over western and northern Iowa through the evening and late evening hours. By Midnight the storms had calmed...but we are expecting more strong storms early this morning and again late today.
Severe storms created large hail and damaging wind. Wide-spread severe weather is not expected this morning. Isolated storms were falling apart and creating high wind as they collapsed.
It will be warm again today. Highs are expected to stay in the lower 80s. The redeveloping storms will kick in by noon and again between 3PM and 9PM tonight.
It will be much cooler Friday through the rest of the week.
There will be a chance for scattered showers Saturday and Sunday, but storms should not stop you from keeping outdoor plans intact.
Highs by next week will be in the upper 60s.
