A supercell develops in McHenry Co heading south into DeKalb and Kane Counties in Northeast Illinois. The storm drops baseball size hail in Huntley and we intercept it near Gilberts IL and Pingree Grove IL where hail up to 1.00in and heavy winds bring down trees and power lines.

 

Severe Thunderstorm Warning / 1.00 hail / strong winds trees and lines down

A small group of severe thunderstorms formed in wisconsin and moved into northern illinois on the afternoon of aug 30. We catchup with the storms near Huntley IL and while traveling up hwy 47 and along hwy 176 towards Marengo IL. We end up finding two small hail cores and some winds and heavy rain. The storms gave the suburbs some good shelf cloud photos later on.

 

Severe Thunderstorm Warning / 0.88 hail / strong winds
