(DES MOINES) Southwest Iowa can expect some stormy weather early next week.
Kurt Kotenberg with the National Weather Service in Des Moines says the chances for showers and thunderstorms move in on Sunday and continue through Monday.
“There is a chance, especially Sunday afternoon, we could be seeing really our first significant severe weather event here across Iowa in quite some time,” said Kotenberg.
He said it is important to remain aware of the weather situation.
“We know that there are a lot of graduation parties going on Sunday afternoon so just make sure that you’re paying attention to the weather forecasts,” said Kotenberg. “If storms do roll in, be prepared to seek shelter and head indoors.”
A few storms may produce very large hail and tornadoes along with a damaging wind threat.
