Rockford Scanner™: Elevated Tornado Risk Today

Mesoscale Discussion 1329
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   0446 PM CDT Mon Aug 20 2018

   Areas affected...Portions of far eastern IA...northern IL...and far
   southern WI

   Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

   Valid 202146Z - 202345Z

   Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

   SUMMARY...A narrow spatial window remains for a brief tornado or two
   with a band of thunderstorms developing northeastward late this
   afternoon into early evening. Watch issuance is unlikely.

   DISCUSSION...A broken line of thunderstorms has recently developed
   across far eastern IA into parts of northern IL along an occluding
   warm front. Limited diurnal heating to the north of this boundary
   has allowed for weak instability to develop late this afternoon,
   with 21Z RAP mesoanalysis estimating MLCAPE up to 1000 J/kg is
   present. Both the low and mid-level flow is not overly strong across
   this region as an occluding upper low continues to develop slowly
   eastward across the Upper Midwest this evening. Still, VWPs from
   several radars just to the north of the warm front (KMKX/KLOT) do
   show a veering and modestly strengthening wind profile in the 0-3 km
   AGL layer. Coupled with a north-northeasterly storm motion, this
   low-level veering is supporting around 100 to locally 150 m2/s2 of
   effective SRH. A couple of cells within the broken line have
   exhibited low-level rotation, with one report of a tornado in
   Clinton County IA at 2049Z. Current expectations are for a brief
   tornado or two to remain possible with these low-topped
   thunderstorms for the next couple of hours. However, the airmass
   with northward extent (into southern WI) quickly becomes less
   unstable due to persistent cloud cover. Therefore, the overall
   limited spatial and temporal nature of the severe threat will
   probably remain too marginal to justify watch issuance, although
   radar and mesoscale trends will be closely monitored
