Active Severe Weather Day in the Plains

A cold front extending from the Upper Midwest into the High Plains this morning will be the focal point for severe thunderstorms today. The primary impacts with the storm will be wind damage. A few tornadoes may occur but this is mainly a wind damage event due to the high heat the storms are moving into.

severe2The main area of severe weather will extend from southern Minnesota through Iowa into eastern Nebraska. That area will probably see a bowing line segment of storms with wind gusts over 50 mph. This could lead into another complex of storms in the Plains overnight that will produce heavy rains and gusty winds. It seems to be the pattern out there with afternoon storms forming into nocturnal thunderstorm complexes.

Cities Impacted by the storms today are:

Omaha, NE

Lincoln, NE

Des Moines, IA

Council Bluffs, IA

Ames, IA..
