You are looking at the chances for severe weather over the central portions of the U.S. Thursday night and again on Friday. The green outline shows slight risk for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.
The high wind tomorrow will also be a problem for drivers. The south wind will top out around 30 to 40 mph. Those folks driving east or west across the state will have to hang on to the wheel and watch for high-profile trucks swinging through the lanes.
Highs Thursday will be very warm. We will see the highs in the lower to middle 80s. That south wind will push the temperatures 20 degrees above average.
All watches and warnings will be running live on Iowa's Weather Plus... channel 13.1 or 276 on Mediacom cable.
