There is a slight risk of severe weather over the entire KWWL viewing area today that has the potential for lots of rain, damaging winds or hail.

While a few storms Thursday morning may have some gusty winds, the main threat will be Thursday afternoon as the main center of energy tracks into the region.

Storms will likely start around Des Moines or southward and eventually track to the east.

Southern Iowa has the best chance for large hail, damaging winds and maybe a tornado.

By the time it reaches our viewing area, the main threat is hail with damaging winds the secondary threat, especially in our southern counties.

Timing of the afternoon storms will depend on how quickly the atmosphere can recharge, although it looks like the main time frame is between 4 and 8 p.m. in our viewing area.

Many areas will get over an inch of rain and some will get over two or three.
