April 4 lightning at Highland, IL
After taking in a relaxing Sunday and enjoying not spending $130 on a futile chase to Iowa, I ended up logging about 30 miles early this morning. Storms finally rolled into the St. Louis area before dawn on Monday, as models had previously suggested they would.

Looking ahead, it appears our next severe storm chances will arrive around Thursday as another upper trough approaches. A nice deep-layer wind field and decent moisture will be present. The 2011 spring storm season is in full swing!
