    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    Pea sized hail here. Lightning strikes are impressive. Winds are meh. Rain is unbelievable. So tired of it...

    Spring 2019 Flooding Thread

    Catastrophic flooding in Kankakee. River out of its banks. Basements in my parent’s hood flooded with backup sewage and water. This is happening all too frequently these past 4-5 years. Make it f*cking stop already!!!

    April 14-15 Snow Potential

    One of these days maybe the “warm ground/sun angle” crutch will die. Fact of the matter is, snowfall rates trump those factors...like today. Alas, it’ll be the same old thing next season with the early events... Got a pretty good layer of IP/snow on elevated surfaces here. Never enough of precip type at once, to get anything really fun I guess.

    Lol, ok. One winter doesn’t make for what always happens here. We certainly weren’t on the right side of the gradient this winter, but I recorded just over 30” for the season. That’s right on average. And summers here aren’t different than what happens 60 miles to the north. This isn’t the deep south Anyways, have some flakes mixing in here now...total kitchen sink.

    Pouring IP here right now. Feels like I'm back in the LAF. Looks like that'll be my destiny, as IKK will be just a shade too far East to see meaningful snows. Also noticed SGF and LSX hoisted WWA's for parts of their CWA's.

    As far as snow intensity, no doubt. Only took until mid March.

    3.6” thru 7:00 am from a report in Bourbonnais. Considering the duration to that point, pretty damn impressive.

    Drove early this morning from IKK to Hinsdale...snow was crazy heavy from home up to about Peotone. Big ole flakes just pouring down. I-57 was snow covered and downright dangerous.

    Lol, you have high expectations. I’ll give you December was a clunker, but it was for everyone. January was really good here. Mostly nickels and dimes, but we had a solid 3 week stretch of pretty good wintry appeal. But if a big dog is what you’re chasing, then I guess I understand. Alas, we’re in range of normal season snowfall. Nowhere near the disaster of past true sh*tty winters.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    Ripping big ole flakes here right now. Thankfully the ice melted off the trees and lines around here. But the sidewalks and side streets are a different story...

    Very efficiently. Untreated roads in my hood are pretty much gone now. Work is gonna be a blast tomorrow.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    I’m on the southwest side of Kankakee. I just went outside and have about 0.10” on my trees/bushes. Branches are crackling in the wind. My girlfriends car is now encased in ice. Driveway...my street... total skating rink. It’s not great here.

    Temp at my house is 30. Roads and sidewalks are skating rinks. Dynamite call by LOT leaving IKK out of the advisory.
