A cold front is located over southern Iowa just north of the WGEM being area.
It appears that the better chances for convection, showers and storms, this evening will be in the northern viewing area along and near that that frontal boundary.
A LOW risk of severe storms will be kept in place over the viewing area due to the vicinity of the cold front with the possibility as low as it is for some large hail, flash flooding or a damaging winds threat.
Isolated tornadoes while remotely possible are not expected.
Overnight lows will be in the 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies at times.
Basically, the trend over the next several days will be for a slim chance of storm each day with hot and humid conditions and highs in the 80s to near 90 degrees in spots.
A truly summertime weather pattern is underway.
The weekend is still looking dry, but will it continue to be hot and humid for your outdoor plans?
