Rain water was over the curbs and up to the sills of parked cars on Third Street south of Otley Avenue Tuesday afternoon.


The Perry stormwater sewer system was supercharged with rain water Tuesday, which backed up in intersections and along gutters before draining away after the storm.

Non-severe scattered thunderstorms are possible over central Iowa Tuesday night and Wednesday, but severe weather is not expected.

The National Weather Servic office in Johnston issued a special weather statement 3:44 p.m. Tuesday, indicating that current atmospheric conditions support the development of funnel clouds.

Usually, these funnel clouds can form from showers and weak thunderstorms, the NWS statement said. These funnels are normally brief, drop only a few hundred feet from the cloud base and rarely become a tornado or cause damage.

However, if you spot one, please immediately report it to the National Weather Service at 515-270-2614. If a tornado warning would become necessary, take appropriate action.

A warning is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, imminent or likely. A watch is used when the risk of a hazardous weather or hydrologic event has increased significantly, but its occurrence, location or timing is still uncertain. An advisory is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic event is occurring, imminent or likely.

ThePerryNews.com will update this weather story as forecasts evolve.
