Well, it turns out that it's actually Severe Weather Awareness Week and if you're looking to chase some awesome storms, do I have an idea for you. While this is not an official "storm chasing" certification this could be the next best thing, especially in Northeastern Iowa. It's pretty simple to be a storm spotter in Iowa.
The warning begins at 1 AM Monday and continues until 4 PM Monday. (see warning map below)
From the National Weather Service in Des Moines:
Northern Iowa will see snow accumulations top 6 inches with areas along portions of the Iowa/Minnesota border around 8 to 9 inches...
