Please don’t laugh at me, but if this was later in the year, and tracked directly over Lake Michigan, could that possibly strengthen a system that is still this well defined?

 

I know there is the “brown ocean” effect, but o would have to imagine that an actual, warm body of water would be more conducive if it could thread the needle and track due north over Lake Michigan?

Around here, the Fox Valley looks to get a soaking over the next few hours. Doesn’t look to budge much. Those of us sandwiched between the light rain of the main circulation and the heavier stuff may not see much after all.

.10 inches so far all in sprinkles.  Sidewalks are drying up faster than it falls.  Hopefully some of that southern band can make it here.  It's a desert.  Don't usually see my yard cracking until August.

Theoretically, I think it could strengthen a system, at least marginally.  I don't see why not.  The issue would be that systems are often clipping by fairly rapidly as they get that far north and also recurving with some eastward component, so getting it to run over Lake Michigan for any prolonged length of time would be difficult.

Nice bands of semi tropical showers punctuated by gusty winds and partly cloudy skies at times.  Nice to experience even though heavier precip was to my west.  With the dearth of svr weather this spring it is still kinda neat to have experienced these remnants so early in the hurricane season and 100 degree temps when I was up at Highland IN the other day.

Nice pics.  Not much spun on radar today, but a pretty surprising amount of wind damage reports from those bands of storms. 

Yeah, ended up getting a gust to 32kt here at DTW, not too bad but not severe.

Yeah, easily verified the marginal and possibly even a slight risk.

Rain amounts not that impressive here... sort of caught in between the heavier totals on the west side of the circulation and the thunderstorms farther west.

Nice pics. I agree that the first one is awesome.

I just came inside from watching the clouds fly by, with the trees blowing in the wind and off again on again rain. Really enjoy having these tropical systems go practically overhead. I'd still be outside if it wasn't getting dark.

Stebo -- 1.84" pwat at DTX at 00z, just a little short of the May record.

Not surprising, a bit of a drier low level than expected today. Dews were supposed to be in lower 70s vs upper 60s.

ORD ended up with only 0.90" of rain from the remnants. Other parts of the metro ended up with 2-5" of rain with flooding, where better training occurred.
