Severe weather is on the way to Iowa tonight. There is a tornado watch in effect for southwest Iowa until Midnight.
A slight risk for severe weather continues in the area...but with the high wind speed at the surface today we will see a chance for tornadoes to be spun up as a cold front moves our way.
Expect stronger storms in the Des Moines Metro by 1 AM.
Most of the severe weather will hit late tonight through early tomorrow morning. Then a second round of storms will develop late in the day tomorrow.
The weekend is looking dry...and cooler.
Stay with us tonight on Channel 13 and on Iowa's Weather Plus on Channel 13 .1.
Also make sure you have have your severe weather radio ready to go.
