Flash flooding has been a major issue through the overnight in NE Iowa, and flooding issues will continue into tonight, possibly spreading into Central Iowa, especially along and north of Highway 30.

Another chance for storms to regroup and again be severe will move into the state this afternoon and evening. By 2-3 pm, storms will likely start to develop to our west as we start to hit the warmest parts of the day. A line of storms will push east along a cold front, and several of these storms could be severe, with large hail and damaging winds. Today, the ingredients for severe weather are not quite as strong as the past couple days, so the tornado threat is not as enhanced, but very heavy rain and flash flooding will still be a major problem over the northern half of Iowa.



    Where is your old, great weather map that one could just pull up quickly to see where the rain was? This is as bad as KCCI.

      You click on Weather at the top right, then click on the interactive radar map just above the 7 day forecast.

    What? No weather map showing the movement of the storm? I can’t believe you would take away the feature I always turned to quickly. Why make it so complicated?

    Click on ‘Weather’ -> ‘See Complete Forcast’ -> ‘Interactive Radar’. All right there.
