Severe Weekend

Posted: 13 Apr 2012 05:58 AM

The Storm Prediction Center has a rare high risk of severe weather forecasted for Saturday with portions of Iowa included in a moderate risk. This risk is due to the combination of springtime instability and strongly sheered wind profiles (winds changing direction and/or speed with increasing height in the atmosphere). This environment supports classic and long-lived supercell thunderstorms. Besides the severe weather, Iowa is also expected to pick up some much needed rain with many locations expected to get much more than an inch of rain.

Good = 64
Bad = 34
