Isolated thunderstorms possible this afternoon

radar11Our latest RPM model shows a few developing thunderstorms here before dinner time. However, there is very little going on right now. Severe storms persist in Central Iowa with a new Severe Thunderstorm Watch posted as close as Grant Co., WI. But these are tracking northeast and may only clip our western counties this evening. Of note are a few cells trying to pop along the IA/MO border. As these speed up and move northeast, they could affect the Quad Cities and NW Illinois this evening.

rpmHere is a look at that RPM simulated radar. There are no indications on satellite that this will pop in the next half hour or so, but as daytime heating persists, thunderstorms could form. Storm motion will be almost due north from south. Some large hail and gusty wind is possible, but only if these get rooted in the surface boundary layer and evolve. We’ll keep you updated this afternoon! -Eric
