CONTINUED SUN: Dry Pattern continues into today through Thursday with slow warming tomorrow. Highs today will range from the low 40’s NW to the Mid 50’s SE. Clouds will be minimal throughout the day with lots of sun and a near calm wind.

DENSE FOG: Fog may develop in portions of North Central and Northeast Iowa Thursday Night. Fog may limit visibility to 0 to a tenth of a mile at times. Use extra caution.

POSSIBLE RAIN: A very weak disturbance will move into the area Saturday bringing with it a chance of a shower to the drizzle Saturday. Any precipitation, if any, should be light ranging from a trace to less than a tenth of an inch, but most areas should remain dry. Tuesday brings a similar situation with best chances to the East, however it is too early to tell. Refer to later forecast videos.

FAR-OUT SNOW STORM?: As mentioned yesterday, the GFS was beginning to draw out a strong low front passing over our area around December 11th-12th, bringing with it a possible snow storm. Today, not many changes other than a slight de-strengthening and a little bit more consistency between a couple of the models. Predictions continue to see strong winds with about a foot of snow possible. However, this is a long ways out and the models have not come into full consistency yet. Refer to later videos.

Henry Luker was born and continues to live in Clear Lake, Iowa, a small town of just over 8,000 people located near Mason City, Iowa. Henry’s has had an interest in weather his entire life, from reading the daily forecasts in first grade to forming "Henry’s Severe Weather Center,” his first weather organization serving North Central Iowa for over a year, before rebranding to “Iowa’s Severe Weather Center.” He has had several mentors in life, including Jeff Wilcox and Dan Herrstrom, whom he later partnered with and merged together to form what is now the Iowa Weather Network.

Henry was also the focus of a July 2014 article highlighting his work with the network [http://globegazette.com/news/local/high-school-weather-watcher-keeps-eyes-on-the-sky/article_5b0479a6-6d33-560a-9960-4e2ffa6b7aef.html]. Former KIMT meteorologist Jim Politis noted the following about him: "Henry's just one of those young men who is really genuinely interested in weather and what he does," he said. "It's certainly refreshing and fun to interact with him." On the side, Henry designs and builds websites for many people locally and has become a well-known webmaster within the community. He works for the Clear Lake Community School District in a wide range of roles, ranging from building and assisting with the district website, managing two of the four school websites, and assisting in technology integration at Clear Creek Elementary.
