Might have a shot at 80 here tomorrow if enough sun.

I saw smoke in the northern sky earlier and figured it was a brush fire.  Did some investigating and turns out somebody drove into a gas pump and started a fire.  :yikes:

Some feisty storms crossing the Mississippi.  Really taking advantage of the steep mid level lapse rates despite the meager surface moisture

Pea-sized hail in a baby t-storm just now.  Nice to hear the change of seasons.  From inside, of course.

Head some thunder earlier as some isolated cells passed nearby.  Picked up 0.04" from a micro cell.

.31” here as the storms stalled and crapped the bed overhead. Some pretty good lightning, but not much thunder. Should perk the grass and trees up a bit

Looks like the Euro has been correct the past several days in showing clouds holding back max temp potential today.  Probably gonna make a late day run at 80 so it's still possible we make 80, but think without these clouds 80 would have been achieved easily.

Very small cell just ripped hail for about 5 minutes.  It was a little bit bigger than pea sized, but not quite dime size.  Nice hour long period of gentle rain and occasional rolling thunder earlier this morning too.  Saw some decent anvil crawlers.

Much needed rain on its way with some thunder mixed in. Might get a little squirrely down towards the Twin Cities with the hot early April weather. Record highs possible!

Have managed to get into the mid 70s even with a ton of clouds.  Definitely would've had a shot at 80 with more sun.

From a climatic data perspective, what's bothered me is with all the data supposedly available why on earth can't I find out something easy like "What is the warmest April in Ontario's history" or even a specific city!? If you type that question right in Google you only get averages and most results are unrelated :arrowhead:.

The beginning of the decent warmth is today and I'm even suppose to hit 20ºC+ for two days :D. Rain chances reduced again for today but storms possible overnight.

Gonna make a solid run at 80 here, would be the earliest since 2012 and about 3-4 weeks ahead of average.

Peak of 80 here at ORD thus far today.

 

Edit: 81 for a high.

For the 3rd time so far in 2021 I reached 20ºC (68F) which is 3C over my forecast high! With the next few days' temps continuously being bumped higher can I get a 26C for Thursday? Let's get greedy here.
