Storms will arrive at widely varying times overnight with the northern communities impacted earlier. Some places in Iowa may take until dawn to see the first rumbles.
The reasoning is storms will fire on a cold front that is slowly making its way towards the area.
Initial storms this evening may hold some severe characteristics producing damaging wind in some spots, but as the night goes on, the severe risk lowers.
That said, heavy rainfall is possible and we'll be monitoring a flash flooding risk if the same area has a run-in with multiple thunderstorms.
