Nice shelf cloud image. Those storms developed into a MCS and made it into Illinois early this morning with the heaviest activity staying south of me. Another repeat expected tonight with a moderate risk of severe expected from IA to IN.

Crap a new alert.  Straight line winds heading this way.  Up to 70.  I'm smack dab in the middle of the warning area.  Nothing to do but wait and see.

I believe  we  are in the clear..cooled off finally.  but the forecast is for heat, with saturated ground , the humidity is going to be up there and probably an interesting heat index ...   I think summer arrived.
