Thunderstorms Continue to Move our Way Sooner Rather than Later

Everything still looks on track. The timing may be a little quicker with the thunderstorms as latest trends show our best chance of thunderstorms now between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. The good news is we have not had any storm reports in Illinois. The bad news is these storms will likely become stronger because of the clearing that has taken place here in Indiana causing the atmosphere to be more unstable. These storms formed in a more stable air mass in Illinois and this will change as they move into Indiana.

Expect a severe thunderstorm watch shortly with the main threats of damaging wind, large hail, and lightning. The Storm Prediction Center has also just come out with a mesoscale discussion confirming this for our area. Here we go again. Please warn friends and relatives that had plans this evening to have a Plan B and to have a safe place they can go to if they are out and about.

Thanks Mike for the update. We are ready. Intellicast is showing some possible storm rotation north and west of chi town. I see hail headed towards Jasper CO. Hopefully the wind farm will slow that down as well. William in Remington

I just called one of our local outdoor swimming pools, warned them that bad storms were on their way soon! They said the lifegaurds are watching the radar, and they will let everyone know as soon as it starts to thunder. I am at work and have kids there that are to walk home! What on earth are they thinking??? Waiting for thunder?? They should warn people before hand

William in Rem, are you a volunteeer fireman by any chance or do you spot for your own info? You are aware we are pretty much on our own unless Jasper Co Sherrif's office notifies Rem police that severe storms are headed our way, in fact not storms but tornado cells? Where are you located if i may ask? if you dont want to put it here, email me at ma_best@comcast.net. I am curious as to who you are and where you are located here in Rem :-)

MA I am north of 24 east of I65 one mile. I am also an EMT in town. I spot for NOAA out of Chicago. I work for the county and have been involved with FEMA and Dept of Homeland Security out of Indy. I love this stuff. I am a certified NOAA spotter and report back to them what I see. Usually the Sheriffs dept gets the info from NOAA that I have reported. williambatley@embarqmail.com William in Remington
