How about all the hail with the thunderstorms which swept across the southern half of the metro area Sunday. And the rainbows put on quite a show too. THANK YOU to each of you who have taken time to share photos!!
I’ve put together a sequence of satellite and radar images of the storms involved. Never a dull moment when it comes to this spring’s weather—and the pattern is to continue an active one! The Storm Prediction Center has a rather high 30 percent severe weather risk area for this coming Friday and Friday night across a wide geographic region of the Midwest, including parts of the Chicago area. Specific details will be worked out in the days ahead, but this is a strong signal five days out. Friday will definitely be a day to be weather aware.
