Storms possible, but little severe risk

OTTUMWA — Southeast Iowa will see summer-like temperatures today, but there's a relatively low risk of severe weather.

The Storm Prediction Center places a narrow swath from northeast Wisconsin through north-central Kansas in the slight risk category. It doesn't include southeast Iowa, but it's close enough that if storms do fire up we could see some carry over into the area. Tornadoes are not expected, but strong winds and hail are possible to the west.

The National Weather Service prediction for southeast Iowa includes a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms tonight and a 40 percent chance tomorrow. After that, it's going to rain. The chance of rain doesn't drop below 60 percent until Saturday.

While the rain isn't expected to be anything like the flooding storms that hit the area a couple weeks ago, southeast Iowa could see more than an inch of rain before all is said and done.
