Wind, hail possibilities as storm tracks toward north Iowa, southern Minnesota

Some of these storms may be strong with an isolated severe storm possible.

Storms and showers will remain isolated through the morning before picking up in intensity and coverage into the afternoon/evening commute.
This will come as a warm front/low pushes into the area through the afternoon bringing warmer air, moisture, and fuel for some storms.
Temperatures will be highly dependent on where the warm front lands but right now I have southern Minnesota pegged for highs in the upper 50's and north Iowa with highs in the middle 60's.
Dew points will rise into the '50s and maybe low 60's to the southeast.
The area is generally under a marginal risk for severe weather with large hail and damaging winds as the main threats.
The tornado threat is low but not out of the question for those in northeast Iowa near the warm front. Heavy rain will be possible at times. The main time frame will be between 3 and 7 PM after that, just spotty showers will be possible for tonight with a few popcorn style rain showers for Thursday.
