    -keep an Eye on the Sky (6/17)

    Keep an eye on the sky fellow Cyclone Fanatics for an enhanced risk of severe storms today.

    There is a moderate risk of severe weather from the Storm Prediction Center later today across Minnesota and Iowa. Watch for storms to begin to fire off by afternoon by the Missouri River and continue to move eastward into the evening.

    I'm most concerned with very strong winds, also look for tornadoes... especially in the western parts of the states, and hail.

    Also, watch out for Flash Flooding, especially throughout the southern half of Iowa.

    Looks to be one of the best threats for severe weather so far this year.

    Stay safe Fanatics.

    5:00-5:30 for Omaha area moving east.

    2-2.5 inches of rain this weekend.

    More flooding. Hope you do not have a river cabin to watch.

    Rain = okay
    Hail on top of my "new" car = not okay

    I've got my 10 year supply of baked beans, spam, and distilled water ready in my storm cellar. Anybody else?

    That seems like an awfully shortsighted plan. If the storm hits, I don't think you'll be thinking about grabbing food and water.. just running downstairs. pack a kit.
