Rockford Scanner™:Severe Thunderstorm WATCH Until 2 AM




 


UPDATE…
743 PM CDT

Additional thunderstorms still appearing likely late this evening
into a part of the overnight hours, as a deep upper level trough
and surface trough/warm front swing through the region. In the
near term, monitoring isolated convection across parts of
northwest Indiana, which is currently lifting into southern Lake
Michigan. This development is in response to low/mid level
convergence lifting north across the region. While the bulk of
this convection has remained subsevere over land, some increase in
intensity was noted as it lifted into the lake. Do think isolated
to scattered storms will continue to be possible across parts of
northwest Indiana over the couple of hours. A few stronger storms
will remain possible with small hail and gusty winds the main
threats. With high PWAT air centered overhead, any storm will be
capable of producing brief torrential rainfall. A quick half inch
to an inch will be possible, and could lead to localized flooding.

Before turning attention to the more widespread development in
eastern IA and southwest WI, will need to monitor isolated
development over parts of north central and northeast IL over the
next couple of hours. While the strongest large scale ascent is
still situated west of the area, surface boundary is situated
through IL and IN from around Sterling to Joliet IL to Wheatfield
IN. This could support some additional development over the next
couple of hours, especially as this boundary lifts in response to
lifting surface low/trough. Think any development in this
locations should remain subsevere as well. However, as we move
later in time this evening, large scale ascent will spread east
and could support some more robust development.

More widespread thunderstorms in eastern IA still expected to
move into northern IL late this evening, likely closer to the
10-11 pm time frame. Upon arrival, strong to severe storms will
remain likely given warm front lifting north and with more
unstable air mass spreading north. Severe threat remains warranted
for the entire watch area, but there may be slightly higher threat
for locations along/west of I-39 and closer to the IL/WI border.
In this location, bulk shear is larger as well as lower level
shear and helicity. Once again though, the threat remains for the
entire watch area. Linear mode of convection expected with
damaging winds the main threats, but hail and the possibility an
isolated tornado can’t be ruled out especially across northwest
IL. Torrential rainfall is also expected with localized flooding
possible. This is especially for locations near the IL/WI border,
where higher amounts of rainfall have already fallen over the last
24 hours. Will continue to monitor the potential to add counties
not in the watch in northeast IL and northwest but at this time,
the higher threat for storms still appears to remain across
northern IL.


A remarkable thermal gradient exists across our area this afternoon
with a notable quasistationary boundary draped essentially along the
I-88 corridor. Locales north of the front have remained socked in
with low clouds all day, and temperatures have struggled to move
much into the upper 60s. To the south it’s a very different story,
with temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s. The
quasistationary boundary will begin to move farther northward as a
warm front through the rest of the afternoon, and this may become a
focus for additional convective development.

A vigorous upper-low remains displaced well to our north and west
this afternoon and, as a result, so too will the main brunt of
forcing for ascent. That said, we’ve seen several rounds of showers
and storms develop well ahead of the main cold front coincident with
several regions of modest low-level warm advection. As a result, it
does look like at least isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms
will be possible across the region this afternoon. We’ve lost some
of the better mid-level flow since this morning, with effective deep
layer shear values now hanging out in the 20-30 kt range. This may
be just enough to support some degree of storm organization given
the moderate to large degree of instability present near and south
of the warm front. Low-level flow is also not all that robust, but
given the substantially backed flow in the vicinity of the effective
warm front, large low-level hodograph curvature exists which has
evidently resulted in enough streamwise vorticity for quick low-
level mesocyclone development with a storm current into Ogle County.
We’ll need to keep a close eye on any cells that are able to mature
and develop in the vicinity of the front this afternoon for an
isolated tornado threat. Main concern region would be roughly
either side of a Rochelle to DuPage to Monee line with things
possibly migrating a bit farther northeast with time as the warm
front moves northward. Again, think coverage will remain on the
lower side, but storms will bear watching.

We’ll turn our attention to the west later this evening and
overnight as a mass of convection is expected to track eastward
along a cold front. Forcing will be robust with this feature, with
60-80 m/12 hour height falls spreading across our region. Guidance
is in good agreement regarding the timing of this frontal
convection, which should be approaching the I-39 corridor just
before midnight, and then into the Chicago metro towards 4-6 AM.
Deep layer wind shear will be increasing during this period, but
we’ll also be losing steeper low-level lapse rates which should help
curtail the overall severe weather potential. Probably will be at
least a threat for strong to marginally severe wind gusts into our
western counties with the hail threat trending lower with time as
activity becomes increasingly linear. There will also be a locally
heavy rainfall threat with this incoming activity, but the overall
quick forward nature should help keep the flash flood potential in
check. Can’t rule out some isolated flooding/flash flooding issues
–particularly across parts of far northeastern Illinois where
upwards of 3 to 5 inches of rain fell last night, but the overall
expected isolated nature precludes the issuance of a Flash Flood
Watch at this juncture.

Rockford Scanner™: RS Fan has their vehicle stolen, have you seen it?




RS Source Karla R. Perez sent us the following:

“This is a long shot but my dads car got stolen last night ( 2011 gray Hyundai Sonata) and other neighbors cars got broken into around the Harrison and Alpine area.

We wanted to see if you could post the pictures of the car and maybe someone has seen it and we can possibly get the car back.
Thank you in advance.”
