Slight risk for severe weather remains

Posted: Updated:

Stay weather aware through tonight, but some good news: the threat for severe weather has been lowered from an "Enhanced Risk" to a "Slight Risk" across all of the Stateline. We'll see a few isolated thunderstorms early this evening, then dry and quiet weather stays around.

Main threats right now look to be strong winds and heavy rain. The threat for large and isolated tornadoes is now far off to our west in western Iowa and south of the St. Louis area. Storms will be moving in from Minnesota and Iowa; we'll have to see how well these hold together as they approach the Stateline, as they may be weakening as they get closer to home. The atmosphere will likely be starting to cool off, removing some of the energy these storms would be able to tap into. If these storms do hold together and don't fizzle out, we'd see them around midnight.

You can track the storms from home with our Interactive Radar at Our Interactive Radar will also display any watches or warnings that pop up, so you can up-to-speed on any severe weather in the area.
