The featured map is the number of hours counties have been under either a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch this year. While Iowa has generally seen less than 24 hours of total watch time, the areas in red indicate counties over 60 hours (4 and a half days). Some strong thunderstorms are expected today, but the worst of the weather will stay to our south.

Good = 41
Bad = 13
