    Mother's day weather thread

    Looks like a lot of storm chasers setting up shop in eastern NE and Western IA. What should we be looking for this afternoon? Looks like sun coming out which IIRC is not good (or good, depending on your POV) for severe weather.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    In the last 20 or 30 minutes in Ankeny, rain has stopped, temp jumped about 10 degrees, sun came out, and humidity has increased.

    Temps aren't high enough in central Iowa to light the fuse

    If you are within an hour or so of I-35 you should keep an eye on the weather today. Especially after 3PM or so.

    Wait until the clouds break. Forecasted highs around 80 today.

    No more rain for a few hours, I need it to dry out so I can get my lawn mowed.

    Pretty nasty storms S-SW of the Omaha metro. Looks like it might miss the city to the NW, but too early to tell

    I'll be very disappointed if we don't get some good storms in central IA tonight

    Re: Mother's day weather thread

    I've already spent about 45 mins in my basement storage room. Then watched a second storm with nasty hail form just SW of my house. It's now clear and really heating up which does not bode well for later today.
