SW Iowa Today

Looks like southwest Iowa will be as good a place as any this afternoon and evening. Low over southern Nebraska should continue to push eastward to near Omaha by this afternoon. With the aid of the earlier mcs dew points in southern Iowa are in the lower 60s. Surface winds should remain backed ahead of this low, and along the surface front / outflow boundary. Cape will be higher further southwest in eastern Kansas, but LCL's will be a lot better in SW Iowa, and the cap will be a lot weaker. If any storm can go up just ahead of the low and along the ofb I think it stands a chance at producing a tornado.

Current target is Red Oak, Iowa.
