Be prepared for possible severe weather this weekend: Early morning rain chances exist for Saturday. This will likely dry up between 9-11 a.m., if it does indeed move into the area at all. Behind this, scattered rains and storms will form along outflow around 2-3pm off to your west. These storms will push overhead in the late afternoon hours, with a 15-25% chance to be severe. Main threats include wind gusts of 50-60 mph, hail to a half an inch in diameter, moderate amounts of lightning, and heavy downpours. These storms will push out of the area in the evening. Overnight, an anticipated complex of rain and storms will exit Iowa and track overhead through the morning. This will bring heavy rain potential, with 0.50-1.50 inches possible through Sunday morning. However, the exact placement of the heavy rainfall band is still a little in doubt. By late Sunday morning rains will push to the south, but the afternoon hours will bring a threat for some pop-up showers or thundershowers. This round is not anticipated to be severe, although a few wind gusts to 40 mph and brief downpours will be possible. All activity dries out late Sunday evening.
