Remnants of tropical system Cristobal will impact Iowa beginning Tuesday morning and into Wednesday. While the entire state will see rain, portions of eastern Iowa are at greatest risk for flooding due to heavier rain. In these areas 2-3 inches of rain or more could cause flash flooding and flooding on area rivers. This forecast is highly dependent on the track of Cristobal, so stay tuned for updates.

⛈⛈ The potential for strong to severe thunderstorms is increasing across much of Iowa for Thursday late afternoon/evening into early Friday morning. ⛈⛈

As of now, it looks like large hail will be the primary threat with storms that develop across northern to northwestern Iowa during Thursday late afternoon/evening. These storms will likely progress south/southeastward after sunset into the overnight hours. During this time-frame, the main threat with the storms will transition to damaging winds.

Updated at 1:30 pm Monday: Though there is still a fair amount of uncertainty how widespread the severe thunderstorm coverage will be over far northern Iowa Tuesday evening, the Enhanced Risk has been shifted south by about 20 miles. Regardless of that small shift, folks over the north should be prepared for some severe storms late tomorrow.

Previous discussion: After a hot and humid day Tuesday, an approaching frontal boundary is expected to trigger thunderstorms over Minnesota during the afternoon. The storms are then expected to move south into northern Iowa during the late afternoon and evening hours. Some of the storms may be severe with large hail and damaging winds. The storms may continue later into the night as well as they move farther south, but should diminish in intensity somewhat by that time. People planning outdoor activities late Tuesday should monitor the weather into tomorrow and have multiple ways to receive warnings.

Heat and humidity are expected to increase Monday into Tuesday and this will create a summer-like, unstable airmass which will be conducive for thunderstorms as a front approaches Iowa from the north. Some of these storms may be severe over northern Iowa during the late afternoon and evening hours Tuesday. Large hail and damaging winds would be the primary hazards. Although a lesser threat, a tornado or two cannot be ruled out either. Folks planning outdoor activities should continue to monitor the weather in the coming days and have multiple ways to receive warnings and weather information.
