Severe weather hits today through Wednesday; Mainly Hail and high winds”

Very large hail and damaging wind gusts will be possible. A tornado or two can not be ruled out.

This is Severe Weather Awareness Week in Iowa. An isolated short-lived tornado or two will be possible during the afternoon.

It is likely that severe thunderstorms will develop by Wednesday afternoon, spreading east across the Four State region.

The weather service said a smaller risk of hail and isolated wind damage extends as far south and east as Montgomery and Auburn.

The weather service in Mobile said there is a marginal risk for a few strong to severe storms generally north of Highway 84 and west of Interstate 65. This one has the potential to bring not only heavy rain but also severe storms to parts of the Southeast.

It may seem like a bit much to go to shelter for a severe thunderstorm, since they happen more often.

Strong to severe shower and thunderstorms are expected to move into the area starting during the early morning hours and should continue into the evening, early overnight time frame on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service issued multiple storm advisories throughout the day Sunday.
