Down­pours near Chicago, tor­na­does down­state

Mid-af­ter­noon Satur­day, con­vec­tive storms broke out along a warm front in Illi­nois as­so­ci­ated with deep­en­ing low pres­sure in the cen­tral Plains. While thun­der­storm down­pours of an inch or more tracked north through the Chicago area, se­vere storms spawned 14 dif­fer­ent tor­nado re­ports in west-cen­tral Illi­nois. In the early evening hours, the Tor­nado Watch for that area was no longer in ef­fect, but strong/ se­vere storms were still on­go­ing.

With all this warm­sea­son storm ac­tiv­ity, it’s hard to be­lieve we just put a cloudy, cold, snowy Novem­ber in the rear-view mir­ror.

Sun­day will see an end to show­ers and an as­sess­ment of pos­si­ble flood­ing here, as low pres­sure pulls away to the east and another siege of much be­low-nor­mal cold with oc­ca­sional snow looms in the week ahead.
