Severe Risks: SPC Outlooks

Chase Recap:

I was awakened around 5:30 or 5:45 am to my weather radio this morning. Severe Thunderstorm Warnings for many counties in Indiana, including Hillsdale County in Michigan. Then it went off again for more Severe Thunderstorms this time just off to my west. A quick check of radar showed a line of storms with high winds.

I grabbed my camera and went out and drove around. I ended up in Clinton County up near St. Johns when they cancelled out the warning. I turned around and headed south. Approaching I-69/Business US-27 interchange, I was hit with an estimated wind of around 40mph out of the west. There wasn’t a lot of lightning with this storm.

Overall, not much of a chase, but it was a nice Christmas present.
