Default Hurricane at LOTO!!!

Damn, some of us from the Windy City are arriving early Thursday morning...look what's coming with us!

Storm of rare strength threatens 40+ m.p.h. gusts/t-storms, 90s Thursday

Published June 5, 2007

A summer storm system of unprecedented size and intensity threatens a period of potentially wild weather in the Plains Wednesday and the Midwest Thursday and Thursday night. If barometric pressures at the heart of the abnormally potent late season storm sink to 28.90" (979 mb) of mercury in the Dakotas Thursday, as the global computer forecast models of nearly every major national forecast agency in the world predict, howling non-thunderstorm winds could gust above 45 m.p.h. here by Thursday afternoon followed by the potential for a serious outbreak of severe, possibly tornadic t-storms over a wide area of the Nation's Heartland. A central pressure at that level would equal that of a Category One hurricane. Strong, warmth-inducing subsidence beneath powerful jet stream winds above the south flank of Thursday's storm are likely to propel Chicago temperatures into the low 90s, possibly producing the year's warmest temp. An even more extended spell of warm weather could be in place here by the middle of next week.

Welcome to my world - I deal with this in TX all the time, but more like 70-80mph gust. Hell 40mph winds - that just a windy day, try tornadoes with winds up to 150mph - one just landed about 3 miles from my house last month. Kind of like dodging bullets. We had a storm come by here on Friday and broke a tree off into my friends kitchen - it was about 8ft at the base. They will have to get a crane to move it.
