I just have a few things to share today, so we'll start with a video of the Parkersburg, IA EF-5 someone posted over on Storm Track a couple days ago. The video itself isn't too exciting, but you'll want the volume all the way up on this one. Note: There is some strong language at the beginning.
Last night, I was watching the radars after a few thunderstorms had erupted in Wyoming. As the system moved east and moved out of the Black Hills, there were some pretty impressive returns on radar as you can see in the image below:
The most interesting part was that the surface temps under that 60+dbZ area were under 30ºF! Check out this precip-type radar product! Phillip, South Dakota was reporting "moderate to heavy freezing rain"!
