Storms still possible in parts of Iowa tonight

Yeah, lots of storms. Todd, luckily *** lot of them didn’t form until they moved *** little bit farther east into far eastern Iowa and actually now into parts of northeastern Missouri here you see *** whole boatload of lightning basically in the northeastern corner of Missouri. So if you’re down towards southeastern Iowa and you’re looking that direction, you’re probably seeing *** lot of those flashes off in the distance. The good news is those are moving away. Another cluster of storms is moving east from Iowa city, over towards the quad cities along the Mississippi River. The good news is most of central Iowa is fairly quiet. We do have one little storm that’s been ongoing just to, well it started up over towards Madison County about an hour or so ago now it’s moving through basically right along the county lines of Warren County and then Clark and Lucas County’s off to the south. So this would be east of New Virginia, off to the south and west of Milo west of Laconia basically Right along highway 69 just south of where it splits off from highway 65 south of Indianola moving off to the east. Just some lightning, just some thunder, just *** brief little heavy downpour. Otherwise not much else going on across the state. That yellow box though still does show you *** tornado watch that’s out for this evening. I think the tornado threat though is going down right now here, 77 degrees in Des Moines do point still remains high, we still have plenty of moisture in the air, the wind is out of the north and east though. Now that’s not very conducive to forming forming tornadic storms. So I would expect probably especially the northern and western parts of this watch to get shaved off before too long technically still does go till midnight. The severe risk has shifted off to the south and east here to where you see those yellow and especially tan colors. The southeastern sections of Iowa still possibly some tornado threats, but I think that’s more down towards the state line with Missouri and even farther east towards the Mississippi River still might be *** couple of sailors to that get going through the overnight time frame. The setup has this cold front that’s now moved off to the south. So if you’re north of the front, tornado threats pretty much nil, high pressure is eventually gonna follow that through the state into tomorrow and bring us *** whole lot more comfortable air. So there still is the chance for *** couple of overnight storms that get generated basically southern Iowa, especially southeast Iowa down towards bloomfield, where we already had that near tornadic storm earlier, Centerville cordon and down into Missouri and then eventually by the time we head towards after midnight, we should be pretty much done by tomorrow morning when the sun comes up. You are looking at seeing that sunshine and then through the day on monday, good amount of sunshine and *** good amount of heat returns as well. Eighties widespread, maybe *** few seventies up in northeast Iowa, but most of central Iowa will be back into summer mode, especially in the next couple of days. Still *** couple of strong, stronger storms, mainly of hail would be the threat as we head into tonight, mainly southern southeastern Iowa. Tomorrow. No threat of anything besides warmer air. No rain 85 for the high with *** lot of blue skies. Look at Tuesday’s high, that’s pretty high, 93. In fact, that would be setting *** new record here in des Moines. If it does work out towards Tuesday front crashes through here, then Tuesday night, that’s gonna drop us back into fall mode for the rest of the week, including when we get to the equinox on thursday itself. Next chance of rain, if you don’t miss out, if you don’t get one today, comes up towards Wednesday and then again on friday
