Severe Weather Update - Iowa / NE Kansas / NW Missouri

A bowing complex of severe thunderstorms with a history of 65-75 mph winds and tennis ball sized hail continues to move East/Southeast at nearly 65 mph this hour.  At this rate, severe thunderstorms with damaging winds can be expected in the Des Moines area before 10pm CDT.

This complex will also clip the extreme Northeast corner of Kansas as it moves into northern Missouri during the next couple of hours.  Portions of southcentral & southeast Iowa will also be affected.

Damaging winds in excess of 65 mph and large hail are likely with this activity.

If you live in the path of this activity, seek immediate shelter indoors and stay away from windows until threatening weather passes your area.
