This evening we're still tracking the chance for some strong to severe storms to move through the area. At this point, it looks like the best chance for stronger storms will be to the south of I-90.
A severe thunderstorm watch is in place until 11 p.m. tonight for most of northeast Iowa but also includes Winona, Fillmore, and Houston counties in Minnesota.
Our window for severe storms will close at around 8-9 o'clock tonight. Any threats with these storms will be strong wind gusts up to 60 mph, 1-inch hail, heavy downpours, and a slight chance for an isolated tornado. However, with the way things are panning out our chance for tornadoes is continuing to decrease.
After tonight, we won't be done with the shower activity quite yet. Off and on scattered showers are likely throughout your Wednesday. I think the majority of those will be before noon, but a few could pop up during the afternoon. Not much rain accumulation is expected as showers will be light and brief.
Expect unseasonably cool temperatures tomorrow, most of us not even making it out of the 70s! The cooldown will be shortlived and we'll be back to the low 90s by Saturday. Weather-wise Thursday and Friday are looking sunny, with shower and storm chances returning on Sunday.
