    Jim, I recently learned that Toledo is not *just* above normal precip on the year-- Toledo's precip from January 1st to August 22nd is nearly at the top of the list, historically.

    Denver has had highs of 99 on Monday and 98 today. 99 set a record high for 8/19. Fort Collins set record highs of 96 and then 98. Today, my area got to 96-99, and then we got a cold front, concurrent with a thunderstorm outflow boundary traveling westward from Weld County. The temperature dropped to 80 and stayed near 80 for most of the evening. We have had a lack of significant rain for many days.

    On 8/11 (Sunday) apparently there was a 4.83" hailstone at Otis, Colorado, which is a new state record. NWS Goodland mentioned it on their web page, and twitter feed.

    Some areas of Kansas and Nebraska have gotten 3-6" of rain in one week. My place has gotten about 0.20" of rain in an entire month.

    I think I saw some of that last night. I went outside at about 10:30 and there were thunderstorms just east of Fort Collins and just south of Loveland. I could definitely see the whole cloud lighting up with lightning near Loveland.

    Tomorrow, the EHI and tornado parameters could be nearly the maximum that you might ever expect in the month August. Thunderstorms are likely across central Illinois.

    Some development of severe storms is possible near Denver today. SPC has an enhanced risk of severe storms out near Goodland. The storm near Castle Rock looks like it will get a severe storm warning in the next hour.
