As temperatures continue to rise along with increased atmospheric instability, thunderstorms are looking more likely across the entire area in the 4-10 pm window. Severe storms are likely as well, especially near and south of Interstate 90. An area of thunderstorms is expected to develop in the late afternoon, near or east of Interstate 35, and shift east through 10 pm. Isolated storms may also form east of that area.
Large hail and damaging winds are the main threats. Southwestern Wisconsin and northeast Iowa seem to have a higher chance of more widespread damaging winds. Locally heavy rain could also cause
some temporary minor flooding. If outdoors later, be prepared to seek safe shelter.
A weather watch indicates the potential for severe or damaging weather conditions.
