We have had a nice cluster of showers and elevated storms push through the area. There has been several non-severe hail reports associated with this cluster across IA/IL.

Had some moderate sleet here a couple hours ago.

I didn't hear it since I was at a movie theater, but according to facebook posts, there was some thunder as well...

Very pleasantly surprised with the storms that6 moved through last night...lightning, thunder, heavy rain, and even sounded like some small hail (I was lying in bed). Great sleeping weather.

1.15" of rain
