  1. That's a very good point. Probably would have reached unthinkable levels Edit. Getting close to 100k cases/day. Will be interesting to see if hospitalizations and unfortunately deaths surge
  2. Looks like the mcs will dive southwest of guidance. Fairly typical
  3. If a tornado forms in this environment watch out.
  4. WOW!!! You don't see this too often. 6500 cape already!!!
  5. Everything is in place for a derecho to happen. Just a question of where?
  6. KIND The final issue for the short term and the one that is likely to have the greatest impact on just exactly how Thursday plays out focuses on the expectation of a mesoscale convective complex to organize across the upper Midwest Wednesday evening in tandem with a strong upper level wave. Trajectories support a southeast moving cluster that will likely produce severe weather Wednesday night aided by an impressive near 50kt 850mb jet. The general movement on the system would bring it into N/NE Indiana during the predawn hours Thursday with at least some potential that the tail end of the cluster works south into part of the northern forecast area. Considering the possibility that this system will mature enough to develop a cold pool...am almost anticipating that the convection will develop further back on its southwest flank into parts of central Indiana near daybreak Thursday. The questions that remain are...how far S/SW into the forecast area the storms can make it Thursday morning and what intensity will they have when they arrive? The nocturnal jet will weaken by 12Z Thursday and largely remain to the north of central Indiana. That would suggest that if the convective complex becomes cold pool dominant...at some point the storms will outrun their low level fuel source...weaken and eventually diminish. At this point...that will likely take place somewhere across the northern half of the forecast area Thursday morning. Still a lot of details to work out...but there is some merit that this could serve as the initial salvo in a 1-2 convective punch for the region by leaving a leftover boundary for new storms to fire on later on Thursday. It also presents some uncertainty with how much convective cloud debris departs Thursday morning and how that might impact available instability for new storms later in the day.
  7. More smoke Another toasty afternoon for the region with a noticeable increase in the haze over Monday as more smoke aloft has drifted into the region. The HRRR vertically integrated smoke parameters look to increase again on Wednesday as another surge of greater concentrated smoke extends into the region...although the highest levels of smoke should largely remain to the northwest
  8. Mcs Wednesday night could squash the severe threat Thursday
  9. Covid is not like "every other" infection. That should be more than obvious by now.
  10. I was just about to post about that. Insane parameters and if verifies could get very interesting
