    Surprised SPC didn't issue a 2% tor threat from IL to parts of OH. These remnant circulations have a tendency to overachieve with lots of remnant vorticity. As Hoosier mentioned wind profiles aren't all that impressive, but they look good enough for the potential to see several tors this afternoon/early eve.

    Back in 1936 on this date MLI hit 111. Even Dubuque hit 110. Makes today's lower 90s seem pretty frosty. Some cu building up overhead. Could get a downpour later according to various runs of hi-res models.

    They just updated it. They skipped the map graphic and just included this.

    Yeah it will be interesting to see how this progresses. It has really dried out here over the past 2 weeks. After having an ultra lush and very fast growing lawn all season, it has really charred up the past week or so with the heat/lack of precip. Overall lack of drought conditions may temper the heat potential, but one thing to consider is that the corn and soybeans are considerably less further along than normal. BTW, looks like mother nature is trying to cheer you up some. Looks like a pretty potent storm went through your area earlier this eve.

    The new Euro bumped it up to 100 for Sunday now, so I guess so much for that "relief" lol. In fact, it now has 4 days in a row AOA 100 starting Thu. Tuesday may fail to make 90 though, as clouds from Barry could temper the heat a bit. That would be sort of a blip in what otherwise would be an easy 10+ day 90+ streak.

    Get well Hoosier! Hit 91 here today, and 90 @ MLI. Looks like relentless 90+ from here on out. Euro has 100+ for Thu-Sat, with a slight hint of relief with only 98 for next Sun.

    Pretty fun evening tracking a supercell that passed just north of the QC, and eventually just north of here. Put down a few funnels along the way, but didn't see any ground rotation. Kind of nice having a 5 minute drive back home after a "chase" lol.

    Several funnel cloud and a brief tornado report around the QC area this evening. These little cells are rotating. Even the wussy cell that passed just north of town a little earlier had a small non-rotating wall cloud. Hit 89 here today, and at MLI.

    MLI tagged at least 92 before the wind shift hit. 89'd here.

    Picked up 0.16" from a brief downpour a little while ago. Was fun watching the tower building up right overhead. EDIT: Downpouring again. 0.25" and counting.

    MLI tagged 94 today. Some nice thunderheads in the eastern sky earlier this afternoon.

    Pretty interesting. Those 13 and 17 year cicadas are pretty cool. Apparently some people like to eat them too lol.

    Just heard the first cicada of the season. They usually signify summer is growing deeper in season. Looks like we won't have quiet, cicada-less evenings again until sometime in September. Picked up 0.03" from a cell that crapped the bed overhead.

    Hottest day of the season so far for both here and MLI at 96 degees. Nice thunderhead in the northern sky atm, as a little cell has popped in the heat of the day.
