The SPC has a 5% tornado risk for IA / MN today. Just a quick look at the models is showing the best risk for tornadoes is north of Des Moines, IA into MN along I-35.  With a surface low moving NE from NE into NW IA into SC MN the sfc winds are starting to back to the SE driving 0-1km srh values up. Late summer temps and moisture should drive MLCAPE into the 2500 J/KG range resulting in 0-1km EHI's close to 3.
