A thunderstorm complex erupted over Eastern Nebraska Sunday afternoon and quickly moved southeast to St Louis over night. Many folks in Southwest Iowa caught a great look at a shelf cloud which is the cloud feature on the forward push of cooler and more dense air. Winds gusted up to 70 mph with this storm. You can check out some more photos of shelf clouds from this event.

Good = 22
Bad = 5
