Day 5: some multicells and the highest point in Iowa

Yesterday was hyped up to be a better day than it ended up being, for us at least, by a long shot.

Storms were certain to develop, but because of a) linear forcing (i.e. a cold front) and b) veering winds near said front, the low-level shear wasn't enough to keep them very organized. We worked hard even to get what we got, which was some multicell structure that at times exhibited a little more organization.

During the day, we happened by the highest point in Iowa (actually we didn't see the plaque, so we weren't quite at the highest point--I didn't know the plaque was there, and nothing else looked any higher) so that was a point of interest. Modest interest. ;)

No chasing today--it's a pretty dead day. We're going to Jess and Jim's for steaks and play central Kansas tomorrow.
