    Nice light show to the north of me. Around buffalo grove area based on radar. Some nice horizontal streaks showing definition and height of the storm. Flaring every few seconds. Also just saw the area was under a tornado warning under an hr ago for lake and north central cook counties.

    Category Five Hurricane Dorian

    Think this speaks for itself. I freeze framed it and showed it to a friend of mine who isn’t weather inclined and she says it looks scary. 2nd one is from a few hours ago.

    Just had an impressive morning storm move in and now 2 round following right behind it in dupage. Just missed out on the hail. But it got really dark. Strong gusting and a few respectable bangers around with ctg’s. 70 degrees with dew at 69. It was a matter of time til we had respectable storms in August from an otherwise quiet summer. Noticed that happens here in the past and saw it coming.

    Enjoying the weather outside right now with a cold one. 85 partly cloudy with dew point at 65. Cicadas are about to kick soon within the hour.

    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.
  10. 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.

    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.
