Tornado Watch issued, severe storms possible tonight

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) – Showers and storms are likely to develop in portions of eastern Iowa this evening, with severe weather looking increasingly likely.

A Twister Watch is active for parts of the KCRG-TV9 seeing region until Late. Really take a look at here for the most recent data on extreme weather conditions cautions.

Areas favored for storm development will be south of U.S. Highway 20, with the highest risk placed along and south of Interstate 80. Any storm that develops on Sunday evening will carry the risk for large hail (with some very large at 2 inches in diameter or more), tornadoes, and damaging winds.

Tempests will probably shape in focal Iowa between 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. tonight, then, at that point, grow and move east and southeast. Tempests will heighten rapidly, turning extreme and supporting themselves past nightfall. Ultimately, the most grounded tempests will move into west focal Illinois out of the KCRG-TV9 seeing region, however a few extra tempests could backbuild into southeast Iowa as the night progressed. These tempests would keep on having a danger of serious climate.

An unusually warm and moist air mass for late September is in place across the Midwest, reflecting an atmosphere that’s a bit more summer-like than that of early Fall. However, mid- to upper-level winds will be closer to being appropriate for the season, providing another necessary ingredient for storms to stay organized and intense.

Try to remain climate mindful through the night. On the off chance that you have a carport or covered leaving, try to leave your vehicle there tonight to forestall hail harm. Focus on refreshes on, KCRG-TV9, our virtual entertainment pages, and the KCRG-TV9 First Alarm Climate Application. Have various ways of getting admonitions through the night; a NOAA weather conditions radio alongside our cell phone application and television/radio are great decisions, and are significantly more grounded at guarding you when joined.

If a warning is issued for your area, heed it. Seek shelter indoors, preferably in the most interior room on the lowest floor of your home. Stay away from windows. Cover your body with pillows or blankets, especially if in a tornado warning, and stay in your safe place until the warning for your area expires or is canceled. Put on a pair of shoes before going to your safe place, and grab a bike helmet to protect your head if you have one handy.

Luckily, after this evening’s round of tempests, we’ll get a break for a tranquil beginning to the week of work. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 70s to low 80s, yet increment into the upper 80s and low 90s on Tuesday. More Fall-like weather conditions will move in for a large portion of the remainder of the week, from Wednesday forward.

Severe weather is possible across a large swatch of central and southeastern Iowa on Sunday evening, with the risk of supercell thunderstorms producing tornados or large hail.

The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for 41 counties in Iowa stretching from east of the Des Moines metro area through the southeast corner of the state. The watch includes the Des Moines metro area, Ames, Iowa City, Cedar Rapids, the Quad Cities and Burlington until 12:00 a.m. Monday, Sept. 19. 

The weather conditions administration cautioned that the gamble for supercell rainstorms would increase around 7 p.m. with the most serious gamble in regions east of Interstate Parkway 35 and south of Interstate Roadway 80.

The conditions are favorable for supercells to develop that are capable of producing hail up to 3 inches in diameter, wind gusts up to 75 mph and a few tornados, according to the weather service’s Storm Prediction Center.

A tornado warning was issued around 7:15 p.m. for Davis County in southeastern Iowa until 7:45 p.m. after radar indicated rotation in a storm there.

Affected counties include: Adair, Adams, Appanoose, Benton, Boone, Cedar, Clarke, Dallas, Davis, Decatur, Des Moines, Guthrie, Henry, Iowa, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Keokuk, Lee, Linn, Louisa, Lucas, Madison, Mahaska, Marion, Marshall, Monroe, Muscatine, Polk, Poweshiek, Ringgold, Scott, Story, Tama, Taylor, Union, Van Buren, Wapello, Warren, Washington and Wayne

possible structure this midday close to Des Moines, with a beginning time likely around 4 to 5 PM. Rainstorms could be serious very quickly when they structure along I-35, and will rapidly move into a significantly better climate toward the southeast.

Thunderstorms that trained across southern and southeast Iowa last night have left behind outflow boundaries (pockets of rain cooled air) that can aid in creating spin for thunderstorms that move into or along the boundaries, so that area is of particular concern this evening.

While the severe threat should end earlier in Central Iowa, severe storms are possible in Southeast Iowa through at least 10 PM, with the potential for storms to continue to bubble and extend a heavy rain threat into the night.
