States Chased: MI, IN, OH
Severe Risks: SPC Outlooks
A small chase on my day off leads me to the Van Wert, OH area and nothing worth looking at. I left Lansing and met up with Andrew Glenn in Marshall. We headed south on 69 where we saw an awesome anvil structure and ran into a storm just north of Fort Wayne.
We ended up stopping at a Meijers on the east side of Fort Wayne and saw shopping carts blow in the wind. That and some pea sized hail would be the excitement for the day. and got pea sized hail.
We chased the cells Southeast towards Van Wert and didn’t see anything but a lot of rain, cloud-to-ground lightning and some small pea sized hail. Ended up stopping near Van Wert.
