Very mean storms near the MN/WI border right now. Funnel cloud report with storm southeast of Rush City.

Dew Points along the Wisconsin River today are said to be historic and record-breaking. The map I saw showed dew points of 90, 89, and 88 (unverified at the time I viewed them) along the river. That is some massively heavy, wet air - even for us Gulf States folk.

Last night, National Geographic aired their new show Witness to Disaster and focused on April 11, 2011. They did a good job covering my hometown Smithville and the EF-5 that destroyed most of the town.

I took out some pictures of the town I had taken before that day and it still hurts to see where once all of those huge, old hardwood trees stood and filled the town over small houses, now there is nothing but flat earth, grass and still no homes.

It will never be the same.

SPC upgraded to a 10% hatched TOR in central IL at 1630. Also added some “strong” tornado language and mentioned a potential upgrade to a TOR and/or wind-driven MDT.

Brad Travis just said there had been over 100 cloud to ground lighting strikes in the last 5 min from severe thunderstorm over Lauderdale Co. I know the wind gusts were so strong it blew the heavy thick cover off of our hot tub and carried it several feet across our backyard. I’m guessing the gust was close to 60 mph. Definitely the strongest gust from a thunderstorm I’ve seen in several years

We watched Brad Travis again at 10:00 and it sounded like he said over 400 cloud to ground strikes in Lauderdale Co. from that storm. I know it seemed like continuous thunder and lightning for about 20 min when the storm hit us, but that is an unreal number of lightning strikes. Is there a weather sensor online that measures cloud to ground strikes for storms that can confirm this number?
