CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Storms continue to move through eastern Iowa from round one for today. Heavy rain and frequent lightning are likely as these move slowly to the east.

The rest of today has the potential to be very active across eastern Iowa with a risk of strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Given the heat built up, any storms will carry the potential for strong wind and large hail. Several more lines of storms could occur through the afternoon and into tonight. With the threat of heavy rain, flash flooding may become a concern later tonight.
