Rockford Scanner™: Possibility Of Strong Winds/Storms Later Tonight, Large Tornado In Iowa

If you get any damages from the winds or storms,
be sure to call  LASK EXTERIOR SOLUTIONS! 



Following tonight’s rain and thunderstorms, snow returns to the area, mostly in the form of a wintry mix, tomorrow night and into Monday with some light, slushy accumulations possible north of I-88. Pleasant conditions are then in store for the middle of next week.

A line of showers and storms developing across southwest Iowa this afternoon will quickly move ENE through this evening. While a few storms are possible before 10pm, the main line containing potentially damaging winds will move through roughly in the 10pm to 1am window.

Sources have been reporting a large tornado that has happened a little bit ago in Iowa.
