Tonight showers and thunderstorms are likely with a low around 60 degrees. The chance of precipitation is 80 percent with new rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
Thunderstorms of more scattered coverage are expected to develop later tonight, especially along and south of the Interstate 80 corridor. There is a low chance that some of these storms will be able to produce large hail. The Storm Prediction Center has placed areas generally along and south of a line from Cedar Rapids, to just southeast of the Quad-Cities in a marginal risk for severe weather tonight.
Areas that experience repeated storms tonight may get locally heavy rainfall of over an inch which may produce ponding of water on roads and in drainage ditches.
