My app shows a flood watch in areas north and south of I-80 from the middle eastern 2/3 of Nebby to just Newton then along I-35 from Des Moines stretching to Northern Minny.

There has been a cell like 5 miles south and east of us that hasn’t moved in an hour. Light show has been impressive. Dalmatian is not impressed though. Currently shaking in bed between me and the gf. Gonna be a long night.

Just checked WeatherChannel radar. Showing what looks very much like a derecho forming at Omaha around 4:30am, hitting Des Moines around 7am...

Just dumping rain here in the DSM metro. Flash Flood Warning until 10:30 AM. Flooding is going to be a real concern. Been dumping rain north in the Raccoon river and DSM river basin.
