...Thunderstorms With Brief Heavy Rainfall and Possible Poor
Traveling Conditions Expected this Morning...

An area of thunderstorms moving over northern Iowa this morning is
producing rainfall of 1 to 2 inches in a short period of time.
Brief rainfall rates of 3 to 4 inches per hour can be expected.
Persons traveling on roads, highways and interstates; especially
Interstate 35 should be alert to rapidly changing conditions.
Rapid drop in visibility as well as ponding on roads can be
expected. This will lead to poor travel conditions and possible
hydroplaning if motorists are traveling too fast.

Use caution while driving through these areas this morning. Though
severe weather is not anticipated, wind gusts to 25 to 35 mph may
occur with this area of thunderstorms. The storms will move
through the region by the noon hour today.
