    IA - HUGE weather system moving through

    "It does have the potential, especially Sunday afternoon in eastern Iowa, to be one of the bigger tornado days that people remember," meteorologist Karl Jungbluth said.

    The weather service issued an advisory at 5 a.m. Friday, noting "strong and potentially long-tracked tornadoes, very large hail and damaging winds are all possible." When the stronger system rolls through Sunday, supercells that form could "race northeast at 60 mph."

    AAAHH! I'm in Eastern Iowa, but I'm about an hour and a half drive from the counties they listed so maybe we'll just get thunderstorms here instead of a tornado? Just moved here in August, so don't really know how these things work...

    If it even gets you you'll be on the edge being that far south. Maybe some rain and wind
    The 2 big towns you're in and next to, seem to follow a different weather pattern than we do up here You guys usually seem to get the stuff out of MO and down, there we get hit with canada and the dakotas LOL

    This is a good resource to keep an eye on for severe weather potential, just click on the maps for more details:

    Praying for everybody in the path of these storms. We have a risk of severe weather tomorrow night here in Indiana, as well. but not as high of a risk as Iowa and Wisconsin have today and tomorrow. Godspeed!

    Thanks guys

    We do have a basement! Our kids are ok about going to the basement.. it sometimes takes some prodding for the older ones. However back in 2008 a nearby town was decimated with an EF5 and it also went through the north end of our town before it dissipated.
    I think driving through that town afterwards drove home how dangerous tornadoes are to the kids and us adults too... all you could see for miles was destruction...we saw a teddy bear speared on a barren tree it was horrible..
    Seeing it in person instilled a fear no amt of news footage could do....

    We'll stay safe

    We're *finally* having what seems to be a nice day here in Wisconsin. Right now it's sunny, warm...and I'm dreading the coming storms tonight (and, reportedly, tomorrow night). Ugh. I hate the threat of tornadoes. They're also saying we could get some significant hail tonight (I have some new hail dings on my car from a storm last week, an am expecting more to add to the collection tonight).

    We had some pretty strong storms move through last night and are expecting more this weekend. Our emergency management services are on high alert and have been preparing for the worst. That gives me pause. If they are taking this system that seriously - I will be too.
