2022 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Discussion

A severe t’storm headed towards here at ORD faded as it approached, but it still provided great garden variety action.

Looks like home may have faired a bit better, with a more sustained line of severe warned t’storms having hit there a bit ago.

Here by Oak Brook small to medium branches  down. 

Nothing crazy, but I didn’t expect much.


I was watching it outside for a bit. Thought the 2 cells would split through here and continue sliding SE. Then, it started shifting a little more easterly. Afterward 15mins or so, saw a shelf cloud appear and start rolling in.  And had nice gusts. 

About 100ft row of branches going across the street.

One of the more severe “events” IMBY/ neighborhood this year lol. Wouldn’t guess in September.

But not surprised either considering the multiple touchdowns we had in the dupage area lately past couple years now.

Strangest and weakest thunderstorm warnings ever in sw MI

A little lightning/thunder here with a wind gust of 24MPH.  Certainly not enough to qualify as severe.  We did get a little over 0.5" of rain in about 15 minutes though so the rain was heavy but definitely not severe.

I would love for a scientific discussion on why today happened.  What made a day with no support go ballbusters.

Negligible cape, but a high shear/forced environment.

A day like this many times will not “do it” and will almost always fly under the radar. On the rare occasion it works out, this is what you get.
