DES MOINES, Iowa – The threat of severe weather continues tonight, with a second round of severe weather possible on Monday.
This afternoon a cold front will push across the Midwest. As that front moves into the humid, warm air mass in place over Iowa, strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop. Large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are all possible as the storms push across the state.
Another significant severe weather event is again possible on Monday. Another storm system will move through the Midwest. Right now, the main threat appears to be in the form of strong, damaging winds.
Heavy rain is also possible both days as storms move through.
