About Iowa Storm Center

Iowa Storm Center stems back to the beginning during 2012. Ben Maurer started the weather page to keep Iowan’s ahead of the next storm and grow his passion for meteorology. He saw a gap in reliable weather forecasting and his goal was to fill that gap. In November of 2017, Ben launched Updraft Weather Solutions, a weather service that would provide custom weather forecasts for businesses and farmers that wanted an accurate weather forecast that went beyond a smart phone app. Over time, Iowa Storm Center grew following the launch of Updraft Weather Solutions that would eventually merge with Iowa Storm Center to offer both public forecasting and consulting under one brand.

For more than 10 years, Iowa Storm Center has prided themselves in being a reliable and trusted source specializing in a simple but unique forecast.
