June 26, 2010 1 Comment

12:15 am: The heaviest of the line is pushing into western Wisconsin, and working through NE Iowa.
Heavy rain with possible flash flooding will be a concern with the rest of the line and the rain behind it. We do have a Flash Flood Watch up through Sunday morning, and several counties are under Flash Flood Warnings.

Earlier:

Severe T-Storm Watch until 3 AM

More severe weather is anticipated today. Here’s the latest details:

What: Severe T-Storm Watch until 3 AM

Where: Our entire viewing area

Why: Line of storms heading into our area from the west. Large hail, damaging winds, and torrential rainfall will be likely will any of the severe storms.

Earlier updates:

Tornado Watch until 8pm

What: Tornado Watch until 8 pm; Flash Flood Watch through Sunday morning

Who: The Tornado Watch stretches from the counties of Rice (MN) straight south to Franklin (IA) and points west.

The Flash Flood Watch is for the entire area.

Why: Warm front near Iowa/Minnesota border; approaching area of low pressure from the west. Daytime heating causing ripe atmosphere for storms to erupt. Also, high dew points will lead to potential for heavy rainfall.

When: Activity is expected later this evening and overnight.

Stay tuned!
