Tornado Watch until 11pm this evening

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch for the entire local area until 11pm this evening. Strong storms are still forecast to develop as we head through the evening hours out in Iowa and then progress eastward towards the area over the next several hours. These storms will be capable of producing large hail with isolated 2″ events, damaging wind gusts (some significant) of 75 MPH or greater, and isolated tornadoes.

Be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions and seek shelter in a sturdy structure if your area is placed under a warning.
