2:30pm Monday Severe Weather Update
We have two tornado watches.
One covers eastern Kansas and western Missouri.
This watch is in effect until 10pm CDT. There is a moderate risk of tornadoes and a moderate risk of a strong tornado or two. There is also a high risk of thunderstorm-generated wind gusts of 60 mph or higher along with a risk of very large hail.
The second covers most of Iowa.
It, too, forecasts a moderate risk of tornadoes and strong tornadoes.
