  3. I usually think of vertically stacked upper level lows as not being an especially proficient svr wx maker, but this one has been going to town the past couple of days.

  5. Just saw the cancellation Hoosier. You lucked out, but now new svr warning for ping pong hail just west of you.
  6. Nor have I. Just the new svr warning for Wilmington.
  7. String of pearl mini supercells along I-57 north of Champaign/Urbana to Chi town right now on radar.
  8. And new cells, although small right now are forming from Sterling and Clinton down to nw of Peoria.....per HRRR
  9. Hang tight. Even if no tor appears two inch hail in the warning isn't any fun.

  11. I have growing concern for Chicago metro area with the storms to the sw as helicity is better in Chi town area and we already have report of the tornado to the sw near Pontiac. Also as has been mentioned the triple point will be moving in that direction as well.
  12. Yes, the northern storm near Ottawa is becoming better defined and the tor warned storm south of it both need to be watched very carefully in the near term.

  14. Your guess is as good as mine. SPC already has the prob listed as moderate for the possibility of a strong tornado within the enhanced risk tornado watch box. Again the number of storms within a geographical area basically determines the risk level.
  15. I now have a svr t storm with 60 mph winds headed in my direction from Indpls now along the W F.
  16. Bulk shear and low level lapse rates have improved dramatically over the tor watch area with Violent Tornado Parameter (VTP) up to two just south of Rockford area. Good low level lapse rates will help any horizontal vortex to be lifted into the vertical.
  17. Looks like Cyclone just got hammered ne of Quad Cities.
  18. Those cells from Quad Cities to Peoria to Terre Haute and west of Indpls are moving quickly ne along the WF. I think it is sw of that line where altocumulus streets are starting to show on satellite that we will have to watch for action later on today as well.
  19. I was fortunate to see a confirmed EF-0 tornado up at Dyer IN last year on May 27 as I was visiting relatives. Wasn't even chasing.
  20. Are you going to actively or armchair chase today since you are in the enhanced area? Thanks for all your updates. Good luck with the IL river flooding as it moves downstream as well.
  21. Watch that warm front. Early morning AFD's in the area were written before SPC upgraded to enhanced.risk. Does look at present like one of the more active days.
  22. This area and the Wichita Falls environs have really been getting pounded this evening with one svr storm after another. BULLETIN - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORMAN OK 915 PM CDT FRI MAY 22 2020 THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN NORMAN HAS ISSUED A * SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING FOR...

  23. I now wonder if that complex of storms along the Red River will form a cold pool and dive se to the metroplex.
  24. Cell tops in the OK/TX watch area expected to reach 60,000 feet. Wow!
