    Mid-July Heat Wave

    89/76/100. I’m outside doing landscaping in eastern dupage. Can confirm it’s moist. Saving grace there’s some breeze on the sweat lol

    Yeah same here. It’s definitely the dews. Weather app has it at 69. Some rain just came in.

    May 27-29 Severe Potential

    Warned my friend in Darien to go north as the hail core was heading his way. Missed just south though as it turned right and went straight east.
  5. Was ripping for a bit earlier. Then picked up again.

    Not sure why they would close down College of Dupage. Im going to take a break and watch a movie or something. I’ve been staring at a light post across the street past couple hrs now shifting windows seeing solid wind but decent visibility. Going to back off and see what she materializes later.

    Starting to hold the towel now.

    Going to chime in also on the totals starting to seem short currently. One hand, here in eastern dupage it’s definitely messy but nothing big dogish so far. Other hand the winds have started to kick up with good amount of time left. White out non existent so far. I’d say, 6” total from 7-11” that was expected here. I’d put a freak snow squall white out that came and went in a hurry a few years ago in late February/early March one night over this from a memorable stand point. That thing had visibility where I could barely see the house across the street. Still time left. Not throwing in the towel overall here in imby. Solid wind though

    Confirmed transition here in eastern Dupage past hr or so. Woke up from a nap around 6 expecting everything to be plastered, but it was all rain. Now over 1/2” on the ground. A friend just called that’s currently out east 20mins from here towards the city asked when the snow is going to start lol.

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Thinking the rancho velez area is where it starts to beef up and take off

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Currently it looks like it's on track to stay strong and strengthen to a solid cat 4 on its way up to Florida. it has a stronger chance for it to start heading into favorable conditions and northerly than it is to bury itself further west in cubas coast. Nothing to downplay here.

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Think once it reaches "rancho Velez" it will start to beef up again and have a good chance to start to really pull more northerly. rancho Velez seems like a good area for it to have some room

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    Looks like it will scrape the coast for the next couple hours. Might see it degrade further in that time frame. Curious to see how she holds towards early evening

    It appears the southern heavier band rotating under and around the rim nudged it up with the northern part going up with it. Kind of like teeter tottering. Not sure if that has any effects physics wise in correlation with the circulation track.
