Severe Weather Update

June 28th, 2012 at 7:31 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

    Here’s video of the huge (2″ in diameter) hail in NW Indiana….and look at the hailstorm in England on Thursday!  Here’s the way that storm looked from inside a car, with a broken windshield.  Picture and story about the England severe storm here.   There was a tiny Severe T-Storm Watch for NW Indiana.   Here’s Chicago radar.    These storms formed on the edge of the lake-breeze in the Chicago area.  Hail up to the size of ping-pong balls fell in Elgin, just west of Chicago.  Golfball-sized hail fell at Lansing, Midlothian and Crestwood.  Dyer, Indiana reported 2″ diameter hail.   Cars were dented and leaves were knocked off trees by the hail.   The storm that tried to cross the cooler Lake Michigan waters  faded out.

    I am beginning to think that the same phenomenon that spawned the cells in the Berrien- Lafayette,IN area occurred over Lake St. Clair as well! Whadday think, Bill?

    Nothing in Northern Berrien County except some clouds.

    Drove up from KY this morning, and saw 108 in Indiana at about 3:45. It was breezy, like convection oven breezy.

  13. That hail is huge for folks in England. We had a couple of friends from the UK out chasing with us earlier this month and they told us all about the differences between our storms and theirs. Quite interesting to say the least. This was a rare event for them!
