    Cedar Rapids got hit pretty good this evening. I picked up 1.60" of rain, while the north to northeast side received 3+".

    Thankfully, the storms sank far enough south overnight to get Cedar Rapids. I picked up 1.23". I had only received 0.31" over the last 16 days and the next ten days look dry, so this is much-needed.

    The drought region of southern Iowa hit the mid to upper 90s this afternoon. We surged to about 90(dew of 74) once the earlier storms moved out, but more storms and clouds have moved in. DVN has become more bullish on storms and heavy rain sinking farther south tonight than what models have been showing(models have missed all the storms in Iowa today). I hope that pans out because it is becoming dry here, and it may not rain again through day 10 once tonight is over.

    I never got into any real heavy rain, but steady moderate rain with an occasional low-end heavy downpour added up to 1.19" over several hours. The sky has cleared behind the rain, but it's still only in the mid 60s.

    There's a robust MCS ongoing over here this morning. It's the classic back-building, storms-on-the-back-edge scenario. I've been on the front edge, so it's just a solid slow-soaker here. An area just southwest of Cedar Rapids has received 2-3 inches of rain this morning, with more heavy rain popping over them. It's going to take a while for this stuff to dissipate, so afternoon instability is iffy.

    Some overnight rain boosted my total to a decent 0.66", our first rainfall in nearly two weeks.

    It appears cyclone got hit with a pretty good line.

    Cedar Rapids was severe-warned in the last hour, but the heavy cell missed north. I got nothing.

    Boy, this thing is really looking good this afternoon, with deep convection encircling a now clear, circular eye. Apparently, all that was needed was a move off of that upwelled cold pool.

    I received 0.70" before midnight, which puts my June total at 7.37". Parts of the north side of the Cedar Rapids metro received 10-11".

    8-10 inches of rain now being reported north of Des Moines, all in the last three hours.

    So far I'm getting squat from this line of bubby convection. Just like every storm this spring/summer, the north side got it again. 5-8 inches of rain just fell in only a few hours just north of Des Moines, from the NWS office to Ankeny.

    The outflow passed slowly south through Cedar Rapids in the last hour, bringing our temp/dew down to 74/68. I'm patiently waiting for the bubbly convection to the west to reach me. It's not in any hurry. Central Iowa is getting nailed with torrential rain and flash flooding.

    Cedar Rapids only hit 91 this afternoon. 91-94 was common across Iowa, shy of the forecast temps again. This has been the pattern during recent heat. It was still plenty hot, though, with a dew reaching 79.
