    Severe Wx 4-15

    Severe Weather threat has shifted northeast for today. NE Iowa, SE Minnesota and SW Wisconsin the bullseye. Need some clearing first but all the other parameters look ripe. Bunch of boundaries left over from last night's activity for potential thunderstorm development today. Shear looks good and instability should be there given clearing.

    Hail, Wind & Tornadoes all threats. Timeframe to watch will be afternoon.

    Why do people refer to weather as wx? Is it a nerdy, meteorologist thing?

    Some cells starting to erupt along US 169 from Fort Dodge north into Kossuth County (no warnings so far). Still sunny and windy in the greater Forest City metropolitan area.
