6/9/06 NOW: SD / NE / IA / MO

Storms starting to initiate south of Sioux City ... seemed the right time to start a NOW-cast.

It seems the storms near and north of the boundary are struggling with the cap but the storms which formed south of the surface low have gotten healthier as they approach the moist axis near the boundary. The boundary has sagged south this afternoon to the NE/SD border and the northernmost cell is heading straight for it, just south of Sioux Falls, SD. It'll be interesting to see what happens when they intersect...and that storm could very well be the only survivor this late in the day. The good news is, there are still at least 2 and a half hours of daylight for the chasers out there. Good luck all!
Verne and Michael Carlson bailed on the Northeast Nebraska target and casually intercepted the Cherry County storm in North-Central Nebraska which was warned for several hours.. he posted a cell phone shot on his blog which definately made it look like storm of the day today. I'm sure he'll be posting higher quality pics and a log on it later tonight as he's making his way south to Ogallala for the night in anticipation of tomorrow's setup...
