Thunderstorms with Heavy Rain and Small Hail over western Iowa Early this Morning.

A band of showers and thunderstorms extended from Denison through Atlantic to near Corning early this morning and were moving only slowly eastward. Some of these storms were producing up to dime sized hail and locally heavy rains, up to an inch in one hour. These storms may produce low visibilities and ponding water on
roads as they drift toward Carroll and Audubon through 400 am. Motorists are urged to be prepared for rapidly changing weather conditions in rain over short distances.

At 242am…KJAN Radio reported peak to half inch hail covering the ground in Atlantic.
