I found the following two quotes from the central Iowa NWS discussion text particularly disturbing.....
SVR WX OUTLOOK UPDATED EARLY TODAY FOR HIGH RISK ACROSS MOST OF THE FORECAST AREA...SVR ONGOING ALREADY TO THE WEST IN NEBRASKA WITH FIRST TOR WATCH ALREADY ISSUED FOR FAR WEST IA. CURRENT CAP OVER THE AREA SHOULD SUPPRESS MOST ACTIVITY THROUGH THE EARLY TO MID AFTERNOON HOURS BEFORE CONDITIONS BECOME MORE FAVORABLE FOR STORMS TOWARD EVENING. MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW CAP ERODING DURING THE EVENING AS STRONG UPPER LVL IMPULSE RAPIDLY ROTATES NORTHEAST ACROSS
THE AREA. THIS SETS THE STAGE FOR VERY RAPIDLY MOVING SUPERCELLS WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR LONG LIVED TORNADOES.
DIFFICULT TO OVERSTATE THE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SITUATION LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT...AND THE POTENTIAL FOR VERY SEVERE FLASH FLOODING. WILL LIKELY HAVE AN EMERGENCY MANAGER CONFERENCE CALL TODAY.
Complaining about helmets and short busses doesn't either.
It's not really a big deal. Right now, it seems like everybody is sitting in anticipation of these up-coming storms. There's nothing wrong with a little conversation in the meantime.
Dammit, if people wanted to their high paced severe weather updates interrupted by conversation in the meantime, they'd be watching it on TV. I'm trying to watch the weather, but this damned hockey game keeps interrupting that.
