Strong-to-severe storms likely today

The primary risk will be hail in our area but it's possible a few storms could produce wind damage and even a brief tornado.

This is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Iowa.

The storm system that moved through last Friday and the storm system that is expected on Wednesday are very similar in nature.
