5:12 pm
there is a flash flood watch apparently until thursday, which is tomorrow. so not too much longer to go. but you're saying the north will be hit harder. >> it's the same general area we've been concerned about it last night there were some strong storms that just got into the northeast corner of the state. by and large we were kind of fortunate raise the north and then it picked up as a dropped into wisco there are more storms tonight and some of those will be heavy. here's where the flash flood watches in effect. the same areas was last night and throughout the day today governor northern two tiers of counties. so places like waterloo, all long, tall city, british and are included in the watch which goes all the way out to 7:00 p.m. tomorrow evening. one of the reasons we are so concerned about this tonight is because there's been so much rain in northern iowa, and the
5:13 pm
has occurred this year. we still have three more months to go. the all-time record for a year was 48.47 inches set in 1993. so just about six tenths of an inch will do it. and the all-time record was set up in the court i think there's a good chance that could happen as we go to the next hours. our rainfall forecast is looking like this. as we go through thursday we start adding appear in adding up, and finally by the time the get to the end of our five -- cycle we are looking at rings that could potentially be as much as 3 inches - 4 inches across our northern counties between now and 5:00 p.m. on friday. more is expected by the time we get to saturday night and sunday. it's really in this area were the main focus will be and that's why we have a flash flood watch out for the northern tiers of counties. this is the rain we saw last night. there were some places near la crosse that had nearly 6 inches of rain and rain and a prayer to shane almost 3.5 inches.
5:14 pm
northeastern corner of the state picked up 1 inch or two which is good we are fortunate that if it was just a little bit further south or west. tonight north summed up by the storms are forming these will continue to track northeast. they will eventually move into northeastern iowa very shortly. looking closer at the radar we can see these have quite a bit of lightning associated with them and there is a severe thunderstorm warning in effect for the northwestern corner of floyd county in this area until 6:00 p.m. tonight. there is even the possibility of large-scale could be found. our models indicate there could be held up to in diameter to the southwest of charles city. the storm is moving northeast at will be a factor in the far northwest of the next hour. as far as the predictor does most of the activity stays northwest of us. but after midnight the showers and storms are expected to become more numerous in the north and they will eventually work their way to the southeast and come across our northern counties. again is a pretty good chance
5:15 pm
inches, or even 3 inches across the far north. temperatures in the mid- 70s to the north and in the southwest temperatures pop into the 90s over much of southwestern iowa. we're fortunate not to get into the real heat and humidity. that warm front still cuts right through the area. they are north of that is where the storms will focus over the next 24 - 36 hours. i'm northern counties will be most favorite for the heavy rain. time will be mild with scattered showers and thunderstorms will be around. but again mainly in her further northern counties north of highway 20 66 - 60 for low temperatures. tomorrow mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers and storms in the area. again i think it will be most pronounced in the northern half. temperatures will range from the mid- 70s north to the mid- 80s in the south. the extended forecast has a couple of warm days for friday and saturday. i think maybe a little break from the rain saturday, but more is expected saturday night and sunday and after that things really cool off for next week with a high strapping back into the fall like 60s.

5:23 pm
will be out until 6:15 p.m. we will take you right to the radar now. we will show you what we are seeing. a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado located near marble rock, that is about 50 miles to the northwest of allison. that storm is moving east at 15 miles an hour. it has the potential to produce a tornado and leave ball sized hail. this storm is one to watch as it starts to move its way across butler county. again, the warning will be out until 6:15 p.m. let's take a look at our velocity mode and we'll see if we can pinpoint where the rotation is. there you can see where the green is located. we be just to the northwest of there not too far away from
5:24 pm
scene, but there is some there. this is a doppler indicated tornado. we have no confirmation of anything on the ground but they're a strong rotation there near marble rock. that's the reason the tornado warning has been issued. the storm also has the potential to produce some large hail. we are going to go to our hail product and show you what we are looking at there and do a query on that. we will find that we have the potential for at least 2-inch diameter hail. that will certainly do some damage. the way the storm is moving looks like it will head across butler county, and maybe get up into floyd county before we start to see it weakened later on. the writing here we will give you a little bit of a fan and show you where the storm is expected to go. with charles city in the path, there is carville, nashville, chickasaw, plainfield, republic and the bond between now and 6:17 p.m. that is the cell we are concerned about it has a lot of lightning associated with it and a good hail quarry in there with some rotation. so if you can show the rainfall
5:25 pm
out some tremendous arounds of rain. we are looking out at the storm stayed at one location amounts that could be up to 5.75 inches in one hour's time. so obviously there is some tremendous downpours and that will produce the flash flooding threat we've been talking about. up in northeastern iowa there will be the threat of flash pretty close to charles city as we go through the next 15 - 20 minutes. once again we are in velocity mode )-right-paren, and you can see around marble rock is where we are most concerned. that would be the rotation associated with the developing tornado we are seeing on the actual radar site. rebecca, are you able to see anything new back there? any of your microphone and you are looking at things. stomach i've not seen any new information we have not gotten any reports or anything from any spotters right now. the warning does continue also imagine floyd counties under a tornado warning. that is until six p.m.
5:26 pm
northern butler county. butler county this morning for you goes until 6:15 p.m. so we have not seen any reports, but i do want to say with this storm, when it was earlier to the west in cerro gordo county that it did produce upwards of 60 - 70 miles an hour winds we had some trees down the city of rockford the storm whether there is a tornado has a history of producing wing damage. >> potentially large hail to on that hail core you can see you right around the wrong around marble rock is where that situation is located. floyd county, where does that expire there? >> floyd county 6:00 p.m. i am also seeing rainfall rates and floyd county have been
5:27 pm
1.5 hours of scene 2 inches - 3 inches in northwest floyd so that could live down to northern butler county as well. >> as far as other thunderstorms we will back the radar up just a little bit. you will see there is a cell to the northwest of this up around mason city. otherwise, you take a look around the rest of northeastern iowa and there is nothing out there. this is just one lone cell. it is been a pretty prime are for development. and boy do we have a temperature contrast today. we talk about the temperatures that were in the 90s in parts of the southwest half of iowa while the 70s in the northeast. it is that instability that is creating our storm. it looks like it is moving east maybe east - southeast across floyd and northern butler counties as we speak. >> we have a big temperature contrast as we see some of that instability. we can see we have
5:28 pm
tama and 73 and charles city, close to the storm. so that's really where we are seeing some instability being generated and that is going to keep the potential for these storms really going throughout the evening. >> we have a bit of a front which is backing the wins and that is creating the share necessary for the rotation in our storms. and looking at the velocity mode of play this is one that levels of the atmosphere as opposed to the surface but definitely strong storm up in the southern part of floyd county. right now not too far away from marble rock. hopefully this will go bit to the south of the charles city area which has a pretty good-
5:29 pm
>> we have not seen any sort of reports or any confirmation once again we have that risk of large hail that could get up to ping-pong size and still potential for strong winds that could do some damage. >> brendan, would you go to the master there and take the lightning off? we could see a little bit of the poor there of the storm it's an obvious hook there that i can see. but boy there is a nice hail core they are, that is for sure. another thing i'd like you do is give me a look at the echo top and we'll see just how big the thunderstorm is. i'm guessing it's probably lease 50,000-foot. there comes almost up to 60,000 feet, that is a very good-sized healthy thunderstorm, to say the least. >> this is also pretty strong for what we are talking the
5:30 pm
something you typically do not see this time of year. it is happening, we have the heat and humidity outside as everyone can feel it out there. is generating enough for these storms. i want to take a look at what our tear is out there. it's right around 30 knots, which isn't really at what we would like to see for tornadoes. we typically like to see about 20 knots in the atmosphere and we have about 30 - 35 so it is not incredibly impressive, but still has >> so we will be waiting to see if there's anything that comes out of this. but at least for the moment there is no question that there is some large hail falling and probably some strong winds and to have had a history of producing winds of up to 70 miles an hour. the overall track appears to be pretty much to the east here. so we've got your tornado warnings out there for the southern half of floyd and the northern parts of butler
