    Not looking forward to it, since I have 2 young girls that are going through the phase where they're deathly afraid of storms.

    Iowans/Minnesotans... be weather aware today. Severe weather risk for this afternoon/evening. The most robust storms will be closest to the heart of the low and warm front in NC/NW IA and SW/SC Minneosta. Hail, Wind and tornadoes possible. Timeframe to watch will be from about 1pm to 10pm. Probability it he map below is for each event to occur within 25 miles of any one point.

    Home (north of Sioux City) for a couple weeks between school and internship. I wouldn't mind seeing a good storm roll in later.

    I'm with you. Soccer at 545 and I can think of half a dozen other things that are more pressing when I get home


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
