    Starting to see some chatter about a nice storm coming through Thursday. What's the scoop from the real weathermen/women/its here?

    That's the day I'm moving out of my apartment and relocating for the summer. So a good storm should be fun.

    Capped Wednesday, but should break it Thursday. Broad scale setup looks favorable for strong/severe storms with the possibility for all severe modes Thursday pm.

    But can't really get into much detail past that especially since it's four days out.

    Here's the SPC's thoughts. http://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/exper/day4-8/

    It's sunny outside now, so I don't see how it could possibly storm two days from now. :jimlad:

    I am waiting for Brian Williams to tell me how many millions of people will be impacted/slightly inconvenienced/or knows someone who might have been before I get too concerned. But once that happens, look the **** out because its every man for himself.

    I'm ready for a good old-fashioned thunderstorm.

    *once I get done running, no desire to die while running, that would be sad.

    Running in the rain is the best! In college when it would rain our easy runs became race-pace and it was epic. Nothing better.

    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.

    I've definitely found that I run faster in the rain. Rain is fine, lightning is not!
