Chicago Storm

TS Olga Remnants

Recommended Posts

The COC is holding together fairly well, and actually looks better than it did when it made landfall.

There has also been widespread high winds/damage near the COC. Tupelo, MS gusted to 71MPH a bit earlier.

Side note, I find it funny that NWS is issuing severe t’storm warnings, instead of general wind headlines.

@ Hoosier

Bingo!

The September 25, 1941 Wind Storm – This was actually the remnants of a Hurricane that had made landfall on the Texas Gulf Coast on the 23rd. The storm raced into the Great Lakes region and merged with a cold front, leading to an intense wind storm. Wind gusts up to 75 MPH hammered southeast Michigan for several hours and led to extensive damages. This is the only record of the remnants of a hurricane moving into Michigan and actually producing hurricane force winds.

Long track of high winds and wind damage along the track of the COC of Olga.

 

Still not sure why things are being treated as severe t’storms though.

Juan might be the last one this late in the season this far west but could be forgetting something.

Sandy's track wasn't as far west, but similar effects got into Chicagoland iirc

Now there are severe thunderstorm warnings for it in southern IN.

Nobody probably knows what to do with it.  From a duration perspective, the situation is more in line with severe thunderstorms... in and out.  Usually wind advisories/high wind warnings are issued for something that lasts at least a bit longer.

Western edge of precip with Sandy ended up around Chicago.  The winds/waves on Lake Michigan were tremendous.

Really dumping outside.  Some streets have a lot of standing water for the amount of rain that has fallen.  Think the sewers might be blocked with leaves.

Actually encountered several inches of water flowing across one road.  About to get into the dry slot though.

Same here further northwest.

There has been higher leaf drop here today with the rain, so I’m sure that is definitely playing a roll. Especially since we’re only sitting at just over 1” here.

Midway COOP just reported 2.50".  Some other amounts near 2" being reported.

LOT radar is really underestimating totals.

1.54” ORD now.

Very efficient rainfall for sure. High PWAT’s from Olga are doing work.
