Scattered showers and thundershowers here during the morning will gradually lift off to the north-northeast during the day. No severe weather is expected here, but new storm development over Iowa this PM could bring an isolated severe storm. The Severe Weather Map from the Storm Prediction center has a Slight Risk Area (in yellow) over E. Iowa. The Marginal Risk Area comes east to Chicago and Milwaukee.
