A quick moving band of showers and thunderstorms is expected to push through the region between 4 AM and 8 AM along a cold front. Rainfall totals will be scant, really less than 1/4". Widespread severe weather isn't expected, however a strong storm with some gusty wind and/or small hail can't be completely ruled out. Any major impact is not expected. It may be enough to slow down the morning rush if it arrives at that perfect time.
After the rain, we'll get some sunshine back out to push temperatures into the low 80s!
Despite the clearing, redevelopment along the slowly stalling cold front looks slim as we're lacking major push along it to send thunderstorms jumping up in the sky. Should it happen that front will be more likely be positioned across central Iowa leaving storms well displaced to our south to create much of an impact. While there is a slight chance of severe weather, it's conditional on those storms forming in north Iowa in the afternoon and evening. This scenario looks unlikely at this point.
