CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - Some showers will be around eastern Iowa through the afternoon, but new showers and storms should develop mainly after 3 p.m. How strong these get will depend on how much sun shines, and the highest chance of getting breaks in the clouds will be in southern Iowa. That's where the higher potential for severe weather will be, and gusty winds and a couple tornadoes are possible if all the ingredients come together just right. Farther north, clouds should hold enough to keep the severe risk very low. Highs this afternoon should be in the 70s, although those who get some sun should jump into the 80s.
