Visible satellite imagery from Wednesday afternoon shows the eruption of storms over eastcentral Iowa. It also shows smoke plumes from the wild fires over the southwestern US (the fuzzy striations). These storms formed along a front that ushered in much drier and cooler air. Large hail and strong winds were reported from some of these storms.

Good = 26
Bad = 10
