    Reconsider majoring in meteorology!

    So I just stumbled across this thread, I’m going to Northern IL University in a month for meteorology and I keep seeing things like this that really want to make me reconsider. I know this was posted 8 years ago so I’m sure things have changed but if anyone has any insight into this I’d love to hear it, giving myself some other options just Incase sounds like the best bet to me right now but I’d love to hear any advice anyone may have.

    Did anyone else see a bright green meteor in the western sky at 8:40 CDT?

    Pretty evil looking sky early this afternoon as a non-severe storm rolled through. Best storm I’ve seen imby all year so far.

    90/83 in the cornfields of southern Grundy, trying to enjoy the constant rumble of the storms to my south outside is even terrible

    Agreed. Feels the same. Tomorrow will feel like winter though with low 50’s for dews

    That’s a good way to describe it. Didn’t think it’d get as bad as the last stretch of heat as far as humidity goes but this afternoon/evening was just as bad if not worse around here. Stupid cornfields

    Both, even sitting in the shade is pretty awful. It’s up to 95/84 now, it bounces around between 81-84. Living next to a lake and surrounded by corn fields really comes back to bite you on days like today lol

    95/82/119 here now. It’s became completely unbearable in the last half hour or so here. Edit: Dews have been increasing considerably in the last 1-2 hours around here, with most stations nearby reporting low 80’s for dews now. (Thanks corn) Winds are also lightening up a bit

    3km nam shows 110-115 heat index values across much of the region, looks to be pretty darn awful out there tomorrow. With most 00z guidance losing any convection tomorrow, would expect LOT to upgrade remaining counties to a warning

    Interested to see how high dews get in rural areas like mine where corn plays a huge role. During the last heat wave, max temp/dew/HI I recorded was 95/79/110, with LOT forecasting 97/80/116 Saturday. As mentioned, localized areas can have much higher dews than urban areas where observation sites are. Interested to see how this will play out, wonder how extreme the readings will get.
