Severe Weather Outbreak Predicted For Chicago Area Wednesday

Looks like Chicagoland could be in for a rough ride Wednesday. From the National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office website this morning:

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE CHICAGO/ROMEOVILLE IL
1121 AM CDT WED JUN 12 2013…

WIDESPREAD SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK ACROSS THE REGION EXPECTED LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING INCLUDING TORNADIC POTENTIAL IN NORTH CENTRAL IL LATE THIS AFTERNOON…

THE EVENING TIME PERIOD SHOULD SEE THE MOST COVERAGE OF SEVERE CONVECTION IN THE FORECAST AREA AND WILL BE THE PRIME TIME FOR CHICAGOLAND. THE LOW-LEVEL JET IS FORECAST TO INCREASE TO 40-50 KT AND POINT INTO THE ONGOING CONVECTION. SOME SCATTERED CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT… POTENTIALLY SEVERE AND SURFACE BASED… EAST AND SOUTH OF THIS IS FAVORED DURING THE EVE. SUFFICIENT DEEP LAYER SHEAR AND RICH LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE WILL OFFER AMPLE WIND THREAT WITH THE ORGANIZED CONVECTIVE CLUSTERS. WITH THE SURFACE LOW PROJECTED TO TRACK EAST NEAR THE I-88 CORRIDOR… THERE IS INCREASING LIKELIHOOD THAT THE MAIN MCV/MCS WILL DEVELOP NEAR THIS CORRIDOR AS WELL. A MAJORITY OF THE EXPLICIT GUIDANCE DOES INDICATE THIS. VERY HEAVY RAINFALL AND AN ENHANCED WIND THREAT WILL EXIST WITH THIS… WHICH WOULD LIKELY IMPACT CHICAGO IN THE 6-10 PM TIME FRAME.

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

The Chicago Sun-Times is warning of “destructive ‘derecho’ winds blowing 75 mph, golf ball-sized hail, flash flooding and even tornadoes” on the top of its website as I type this.

Prepare accordingly. And for updates on the predicted severe weather you can visit the NWS-Chicago “Severe Weather Briefing Page” here.
