9/05/04 NOW: Plains/Midwest

This NOW thread is started in response to TOR watch 801 issued for Iowa and southern Minnesota. An ongoing line of pre-frontal convection is now entering areas with higher instability and a more favorable wind environment, which may provoke storms to evolve into a line of surface-based supercells as the afternoon and evening continue.

Please keeping responses to this thread on topic by responding with realtime satellite, radar and surface obs that can assist chasers with decision making while in the field. Forecasts should remain in the forecast thread.
