Severe Weather Strikes Great Lakes

Severe weather is targeting the Great Lakes today, as a cold front sags south and ignites potentially severe storms in the midst of warm temperatures and a very humid environment.

Analysis of current conditions shows an eroding capping inversion over the western portion of the risk area, with over 5000 j/kg of instability being forecasted to develop in the highlighted area, especially in Iowa and Illinois.

Severe thunderstorm watches have been issued all over the Great Lakes today, with storms not far behind.

Andrew it might be severe but it sounds wonderful. Here in Huntley Illinois we are having a thunderstorm and the rain hitting the windows sounds great. Let it come, I won't complain
