Saturday Storms: What was the Deal With Those? (With Pictures)

After a sultry Saturday where high temperatures peaked in the lower 90’s with dew points in the 70’s, a few very photogenic storms popped up near Waterloo, Jesup, and Independence around sunset. (Look at the timestamp on the radar images below).

Essentially, a stationary boundary was draped over this area and convergence along the front led to a fairly explosive development of these storms with the heat and humidity servicing as fuel.

Once the sun went down and temperatures cooled, these storms died very quickly. The storm wasn’t very organized so it never went severe put did produce some brief heavy rain and plenty of lightning. There were some great pictures that came out of these storms too.
