Ongoing Severe Threat part 2

No severe weather developed in the valley yesterday, but a brief tornado in Lafayette County was rated EF0 and a much stronger tornado in Muscatine County, Iowa was rated EF3. There is still a severe weather threat this afternoon, as partly sunny skies will allow for some destabilization of the atmosphere. The most likely scenario is for thunderstorms to develop over central Iowa and Minnesota during the afternoon hours and then track eastward into Wisconsin. This morning's rain and cloudcover has stabilized the atmosphere for now, so the severe weather threat is not as great as it could be, but it still bears watching.
