The Euro is getting weaker... mostly junk snow that whitens the grass.

We have a nice line of storms moving through eastern Iowa this morning.  There is a lot of lightning.  The thunder is almost constant, but it's not loud.  The rain was heavy, briefly.  I received less than 0.20".

Had a couple rounds of thunderstorms roll through last night which dropped around .75 of rain in my backyard. It's nice to finally see some moisture, finally! Not a drought buster by any means, however anything will help right now.  

Watching to see how the severe weather threat plays out today, looks like the action will fire up right on top of the Omaha metro and roll east however it's going to be a close call this afternoon!

Hope that Euro verifies, drops the heaviest band practically right on Tyrol Basin, it would make a trip out there on Tuesday very nice for me since my home hill is probably going to be closed. Looks like the heaviest rain is going north but it'll hit Cascade, but they have a massive base

Glad to see NE get some precip, cost of wheat is going through the rough right now, really need the best we can for farmers

Most models are showing a couple inches of snow in Cedar Rapids Sunday night.  Unfortunately, the timing is very poor for viewing.  It doesn't start til bedtime and ends before sunrise.

It’s 40.6 degrees at my house and 15 miles southeast of here on the other side of the metro it’s 57 degrees.

The front ended up a bit farther south than expected, that forecast of a Saturday in the low 70s turned into 40 and damp in Lincoln. A bit south in Beatrice, it's currently 69.

Large Wedge just to my SW.  Marble sized hail in my back yard.

The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

Only the 3rd time in KDSM Manual ASOS history (since 1996) that a confirmed tornado has been reported at the airport. I haven't checked the stats- but I believe this stretches a lot further back than 1996. For what ever reason.

Heavy rain with thunder and lightning in Vadnais Heights, MN currently. And its 34°

James I’m a few miles west and south of you. I have some heavy pingers hitting the windows with lightning and thunder. I can’t believe how much of a bust the high temp was today. My weather station shows a high of 35.2. It was supposed to be 41. This could be a mess overnight.

The NAMs are showing 6+" across Iowa, but that seems overdone.  The 00z HRRR has only a couple inches.  The FV3 has 1".

I picked up a solid 0.51" of rain today from three storms.  Any thunderstorms in early March are a bonus.

Back from chasing in Iowa. Unfortunately didn’t see the big tornado due to being 15 miles behind and never catching up bc of the fast storm motions of 50-55 mph.

I was on a nice looking tornado warned storm but the main show came from the cell to my southeast.

Being behind and trying to catch up led me through the damage path of the storm.

First was the town of Orient, IA which was hit by 3-4” hail just to the north of the tornado path. Multiple cars had their windows busted out.

I made it to Winterset, and just south of town observed major damage.

After that, realizing I was never going to catch the storm with the 2 hour long tornado still on the ground south of Des Moines, I headed for home.

Quite the weather day experience for me. Went to bed last night with T storms  and mid 50s. Woke up to upper 30s and late am storms with pea sized hail. Left town and crossed into the warm sector with temps near 70. Came across 3-4” hail and tornado damage and beautiful sunlit supercells. Headed home crossing back into the cold sector and pulled up to my house with snowflakes falling!!

Boy, what a day of wx yesterday for the MW and the storms that barreled through IA.  The 1st line produced one strong cell that track right overhead with vivid lightning and loud thunder.  After that I went to sleep and was awakened by the second line of storms that went through N IL after 11:00pm.  Man, I gotta tell ya, the roaring sound of the winds out ahead of this line I haven't heard in a long time with the bare trees.  The sound it generates without the leaves on the trees is different when comparing it to a full tree of leaves.  It's hard to explain, but it certainly is "fitting" that MAR "roars" like a Lion, albeit delayed by a few days.  ORD had a peak wind gust of 66mph &  RFD 81mph...

Haven’t stepped outside yet but eyeballing it I’d say we got about 5” of snow overnight. So what was supposed to be mostly rain/mix turned into a snowblower event.

MPX: 

Overnight was a classic example of squeezing every ounce of energy out of the atmosphere over the Twin Cities as an intense mesoscale band of snow developed in response to a band of fgen centered in the h85-h7 layer. While most of you were sleeping, we saw snow rates of 2" per hour develop with this band, which quickly blanketed much of the metro in 3-5 inches of snow over the course of about 2-2.5 hours.

Models have generally raised our snow a bit this morning.  The latest GFS is its best run so far.
