  2. When I first seen this I thought it could be the wall cloud dissipating or something. Never seen a tornado or tornadic cell in daylight. Wasn't any rotation that I could see but not sure how evident it is from a few miles away. Just seen a ring like pattern and was intrigued.
  3. Anyone see any confirmed debris signature in the Pleasant Plains area when it was confirmed? Waiting to hear back from a high school friend there in hope's he faired well.
  4. I'm not sure what I was looking at to my NW and eventual North. I couldn't see any clear cut rotation to be the wall cloud of the storm. I have a horrible view from my backyard and kept wandering out trying to get a view in gaps between obstructions and lightning was my biggest fear lol. Wasn't a whole lot of thunder nor lightning here. I think it was just a bit too far away for me to have had a visual on the main part of the storm. Maybe this tail end Charlie can give me a thunderstorm warning. Was still some pretty cool cloud formations regardless.
  5. Sirens going off here, we'll south of the Storm but they are mainly for Sherman about 4 miles away
  6. Stuck in the Dr. office watching radarscope and each warning picks up speed I'm not overly optimistic, they always weaken or split as they near and restrengthem after passing. I just hate being windowless
  7. Hit 79 today, also think a wind advisory could have been justified. Been some good gusts and limbs coming down this afternoon/evening.
  8. Decent little storm moved through here, was surprised when I pulled up radar ILX put a warning on it. Came through a bit differently than usual. First a batch of heavy rain moved through, then a few CTG's with some decent thunder claps. Then it started a light rain and thought the warning was kneejerk. About 8:12 the winds started coming in, had about 4 or 5 pockets of winds I wouod guesstimate near 45'ish mph. Next door neighbor has a maple thathas been slowly dieing the past few years and neighbor across the street has two 75 foot ash about 38" in diameter that are completely dead. Was expecting some branches to come down or worse, but the way the winds gusted in short bursts they all survived. Didn't get any hail here, wish there was lightning behind the leading edge though. Lools lioe just showers the rest of the way. I could see some areas within the warning getting severe gusts. Definitely ready for Spring to spring though.
  9. I'm pre-internet as well , born 4 months after this event.
  10. Apologies for not knowing where to post, but can you imagine 47 years ago and no access to models or Meso Discussions...
  11. Yeah, SPC could have done without the NW bump of the slight to along the IL river here. Storm that did pass through was easily covered by the marginal, HRRR did well with it staying to my south I'm severe weather starved here
  12. Wasn't even yawn worthy. Same old song and dance, storm skirts by, showers stabilize things, anything behind will weaken as it approaches. I did hear some thunder though....
