the strongest storms will form and what areas will receive the worst
weather this monitor later forecasts for any possible
changes. Severe weather threats today include very large hail and
possibly intense wind gusts from the strongest storms. Elsewhere a
slight risk for severe storms is forecast for portions of central Iowa
