Weather Pattern To Produce Knock-Out Punch To The Area

Tornado Alley Severe Storm

Charles City, Iowa – Keep your eye on the sky, and on the waters for that matter.

Area storms could bring a double-wammy of sorts to the listening area today, tonight and the next couple of days.  Todd Shea is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in La Crosse.

 

Forecasters are predicting another one to three inches of rain on top of the four to eight inches that has already fallen in the area.  The National Weather Service says localized to widespread flooding is possible, especially if storms repeat over the same areas.

Shea says the area has been on a boundary line between cool air and warm, humid air riding in from the south forcing a unique weather pattern.

 

Not only is there risk for high waters, but now for severe storms according to Shea.

 

The entire listening area remains under a flash-flood watch until 7 am tomorrow.  Right now the Cedar River is just below 3.5 feet as of 7:30 this morning, flood stage is at 12 feet.
