Strong storms possible north Tuesday night

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The same front that has been causing rounds of storms across parts of eastern Iowa the last few days continues to bring storm chances to the area. Tonight, the front is expected to move north, and may bring strong to severe storms to our northern counties.

As has been the case with previous storms this week, the timing of storms tonight would be late this evening and into the overnight. A complex of thunderstorms is forecast to develop in west central Minnesota early this evening and will move east and southeast towards northeastern Iowa and western Wisconsin.

Some of the storms that move into areas around Highway 20 and north could be strong or severe, with damaging winds and large hail the primary threats. A brief tornado can’t be ruled out as well. A Level 1 (slight) risk for severe weather is in place for areas north of line from Waterloo to Clinton.

More storms are possible Wednesday night across all of eastern Iowa. Some of those may be strong as well. A Level 1 (slight) risk of severe weather is in place for most of the TV9 viewing area for Wednesday night.
