  1. I couldn't believe it while watching it, especially with a solid high cloud deck.
  2. Some of the 90°+ high temps from across the area today... 94 MDW 93 Home 90 RFD90°+ day tally for the year...28 - MDW20 - RFD19 - Ex-Home17 - Current Home16 - ORD
  3. Not only CAMS, but most other guidance also didn't have much of anything for the most part.
  4. A severe t’storm headed towards here at ORD faded as it approached, but it still provided great garden variety action. Looks like home may have faired a bit better, with a more sustained line of severe warned t’storms having hit there a bit ago.
  5. Yea, the boundary washed out rapidly, and at the same time cirrus from severe activity north moved in...but it didn't stop the rise. MDW made it well over 90, and ORD fell well short.
  6. Severe warned supercell t'storm up around RFD has a broad/weak couplet.
  7. Unless there's a late rally if the lake enhanced OFB that's currently across the metro washes out, today's likely last shot at 90+ for the year will fall short at both ORD and MDW.
  8. Had a severe t'storm pass just north of here at home a few hours ago, which produced some hail along it's path of travel. Ended up with a fairly good light show with it here, especially for nearing late September.
  9. Today/tonight looks moderate risk-ish across SE IA/NE MO/W IL.
  10. It's been a while since I've had a chance to throw out any thoughts regarding the medium/long range, but really there hasn't been anything that has significantly changed since my last post in the summer thread from mid-August. The pattern we have seen dominant much of the summer was expected to continue through the end of August, and it ended up doing so. For the first half of September, a variation of this same pattern has continued...Though with a bit more troughing along the West Coast at times and a few transient bouts of ridging up in the Greenland/North Pole area at times. We are finally going to see a significant change coming up shortly, but it appears as though it will be short lived. As is being mentioned by many, we are looking at a warm up for late this week through the first half of next week across a good chunk of the sub-forum. This warm up will bring a re-introduction to temperatures into the 80's/90's for many for a several day period. This warm up will be a product of an increasing -PNA/West Coast trough, one of the most significant we have seen all summer. This will pump up ridging across the Central/Southern Plain, Ohio Valley and Southeast...Leading the the aforementioned period of warmer/hotter temps. Beyond this time (After mid-next week), like clock work it appears we'll head back into some variation of the dominant pattern we've seen much of the summer.
  11. There were numerous couplets with non-severe t’storms/rain showers across NE IL and Southern Lake Michigan today. Some of this activity, as alluded to by madwx, did spin up into an MCV or two.
