With a unidirectional wind profile, veering in the low levels, marginal instability and linear forcing, I didn't expect to see anything today. But it was in my backyard, so I went anyway. I ended up near Nashville, IL before turning around to head home. I saw maybe 5 cloud-to-ground lightning strikes all afternoon, and found no hail in any of the cores (WxWorx algorithm had some 1" and 1.5" markers, but none that I sampled verified). I observed nothing remotely supercellular, just a few high, ragged shelf clouds here and there.

This should be it for us for a while. Possibly a cold-core storm or two tomorrow to watch out for, since they've happened two days in a row now west of here.
