Looks like the hailer to the sw. is still producing hail and just now is severe warned again as it moves closer. Lightning is increasing once again. Only had outflow winds from the first storms.

While it's a chilly morning here (44F) in Fountain Hills, AZ...I'm keeping an eye on back home as the season's first big severe wx threat targets the Midwest. It was a matter of time we saw one of these signature LRC storms to track out of the Rockies and produce some severe wx. Hopefully these storms don't cause a lot of damage.

Nice soaking rain coming today, and the threat of snow has been shifting east over the last few model runs. A Winter Weather Advisory now slices through the MSP metro for tonight into tomorrow morning. Of course the evolution of this storm up this way is highly dependent on what transpires downstream. If things get out of control with convection it’s going to rob us of moisture. Interesting weather day on tap nonetheless. Stay safe peeps.

There was plenty of action overnight, but everything went around me again.  I picked up only 0.20" of rain.  As with our last storm event a week or so ago, the Iowa City/North Liberty area was the hot spot where heavy rain and a bit of hail fell.  The Quad Cities area was crushed by training storms.  There are many reports of 3.0-4.5" of rain in that area.

I was in the midst of the main t. storm activity, but was right in between two heavy swaths with around 1.50" just nw. and se. Don't like getting brushed repeatedly, but was nice seeing all the lightning. I still ended up with 0.61". I'm over 4" for this month so I'm expecting monthly amounts are approaching 6" just to my nw. as they got a lot more from the previous system as well.

Currently there is dense fog north of the warm front here.

Strong thunder woke me and driving rain hitting the windows. We officially have "green-up"and the T-showers will really make things green going into April. Looks like nearly 1.5" here and not so much as a Flood Watch. Back yard is a pond and ofc that means water in my basement. With a risk of stronger T-storms overnight I'm not too thrilled. Hopefully I get missed more than not. Don't need severe or power outages at this time either.

The last of this batch of thunder showers just moved through with an additional three or four tenths. Now we wait and see what happens this afternoon! The sun is trying to break through.

I saw that cell on the radar loop and it hit my back yard back him also. Gotta call my neighbor to see if all is ok.

Seems to be a big bust again for Cedar Rapids. Just had some brief downpours. No signs of any severe weather around here.
