Severe Storms Possible in Iowa Friday, Winter Weather Returns Saturday

  • National Weather Service forecasts heavy rain, possible thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday

As you wake up on Saturday morning, showers and t-storms will likely be ongoing to our west. By late Sunday, a strong cold front and very strong winds in the upper levels of the atmosphere will move across the eastern Carolinas.

Most of the rainfall will end by early evening (before/near sunset) leaving a window of opportunity for outdoor events to go on as planned Saturday night.

The weather system that's moving in will have sizable impacts for those who are looking to travel now through the weekend.

Thanks for all your reports so far and for trusting the First Alert Stormteam to keep you safe during severe weather! It's part of the Wisconsin Tornado and Severe Weather Awareness week.


Managers at Kauffman Stadium say they are prepared in case severe weather strikes during the Royals' Friday night matchup with the Angels. Areas in the Moderate Risk zone could see strong tornadoes.

National Weather Service forecasters say central and western portions of Alabama are at the highest risk for a weekend of severe weather, and residents of the entire state is advised to watch for tornadoes. On the flip side there is still a chance that this warm front will move north throughout the afternoon and clear some of the clouds across central and southern Iowa. Thus wind and hail would become the main concern. All of the latest forecast models agree with the best chance of rain and thunderstorms arriving well after sunset Sunday evening. The storm is also expected to have wind gusts of up to 75 miles per hour and will bring the threat of tornadoes. A healthy northerly wind behind the front will make it feel even cooler. After the morning break, snow, sleet, freezing rain will return. As a result, Sunday has been declared a First Alert Day.

In the South, warm weather favors spring fieldwork in areas where soils are dry enough to support heavy equipment. Additional strong to severe storms may redevelop by midday and continue throughout the afternoon.
