Most of us had a decent Sunday with a mix of sun and clouds, relatively comfortable humidity levels and warm temperatures. We had quite a bit of energy in our atmosphere, but no real “trigger” to get storms going. But, we managed to get a few showers and storms to pop up, and they were very isolated in nature. Below is one of about 3 different cells that developed near Dike, and tracked to the south east. Our Storm Track 7 Live Weather Network camera at Hawkeye Community College caught a great view of one of these cells.
Here’s one from our Waterloo camera, looking at a different cell.
Several viewers were able to get fantastic photos of the different storms that popped up. These were very easy to see from a far distance for a couple reasons. One, because some of these grew to be 30,000 to 50,000 feet in the atmosphere. Two, many of us had a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky which made it easy to view from a distance.
