Thunderstorms in southwest Iowa

Returning from running the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon in Kansas City, thunderstorms developed in southwest Iowa along Interstate 29. We stopped at the Nebraska City exit and watched the development. Since we had no where to be we followed the storms east northeast. The storms displayed brief supercell characteristics at times, especially near Clarinda and Emerson Iowa, but overall shear was marginal but it was fun to be out and see thunderstorms for the first time of the year.
