(DES MOINES) The frontal boundary arcing across Iowa shows the contrast in temps, with temps in the 70’s near Lamoni and 40’s near Atlantic. This will be the focus for some thunderstorm development this evening, according to Jeff Johnson with the National Weather Service in Des Moines.
“There is a slight chance of severe weather in your neck of the woods (Atlantic area), predominately the risk there would be hail of severe size; an inch or greater,” said Johnson, “It also looks like we could pick up some pretty good rainfall later tonight and tomorrow.”
Johnson said there will be some snow following the storms, but nothing significant.
“We’re looking at rain mixing in with snow late Wednesday night into Thursday, accumulating snow pretty much not going to happen, maybe an inch or two in grassy areas on the outside,” explained Johnson. “The bigger thing for this event would be prolonged rain for tonight and tomorrow, kind of a cold rain”
Johnson said the temps will start to warm up a bit by the weekend, but it will still be kind of cool for this time of year.
