Skies are sunny and temperatures summer like in the mid 80s this afternoon. We are watching for the potential for a few isolated showers and storms to pop up late this afternoon and evening along a warm front sitting across southwestern Iowa. Much of Central Iowa is a part of a slight risk area for severe storms issue by the Storm Prediction Center.
A warm front will lift NE across the state as we head through the evening and overnight. Initially any storms that are able to fire through early evening along the warm front could be severe, with large hail and damaging winds possible.
After sunset, the warm front will likely stall out over the NE 1/2 of the state, and provide the path for a complex of storms to dive SE from the Dakotas, bringing the potential for damaging winds, heavy rain and flash flooding through the overnight.
The threat for storms hangs on through Wednesday morning, but mainly in eastern Iowa at that time. The end of the week will be drier with sunny skies and temperatures holding in the upper 80s.
