So long 80s! Tracking a significantly cooler front

Today's cool frontal boundary is pretty easy to find on the latest temperature map, this one from, which has some terrific imagery you might want to explore. Most of the (light) showers are hanging back in the cool air, 100-200 miles behind the front. The potential for severe storms later today is closer to the 70-80 degree air to our south/east. Dew points are close to 60 near La Crosse - my hunch is that a line of severe storms will blossom from central Wisconsin into Iowa, possibly just knicking southeastern Minnesota near Rochester, Winona and Austin/Albert Lea. Stay tuned...
