Energy over the northern Pacific Ocean will develop a weak storm system once it reaches North America. This storm system may impact the area on Tuesday with widespread light snow. The eventual storm track will be critical in determining potential snow accumulations and impacts.
⚠️Fog, dense in areas, will overspread portions of N IL over the next several hours. Visibility will be reduced to a quarter of a mile or less in spots. Drive with caution, and remain alert for changing visibility especially if driving along Hwy 20 & IL route 26 & 73. #ilwx
While it's sad that the sun sets so early, at least it goes out in fashion! Did y'all, get to see the fiery sunset this evening? 🌞🔥
Clouds will persist through the night, with chances for precipitation increasing towards the morning. Slight chance for freezing rain in our north tomorrow morning, otherwise it will warm up and be rain showers throughout. #iawx #ilwx #mowx
Here is an updated wind graphic from the August 10th Derecho for our area. As reports continue to funnel in, updates to this graphic will continue through the coming days. Current estimated max wind speed is at 140 mph in the Cedar Rapids area. #iawx #ilwx #mowx
A quiet evening shift calls for a sciency post!? ?Check out the evolution of the snow depth across the continental U.S. over the past 10 days as the Arctic air departed! Here at the office, we've lost 6 inches of our snow depth over the past week!? #iawx #ilwx #mowx
Morning Science! 😀 A mesoscale convective vortex is tracking through our area and can be seen on radar, visible, and IR satellite images. This feature forms in response to feedback from an area of T-storms and has caused new development of storms further east of the center.
Nice shelf cloud outside our office ahead of this line of storms moving in. Heavy rain, occasional lightning, and winds up to 35 mph will be possible as the storms roll through.
