Meteorology

June 23, 11 am - 8:00 pm: Visible Satellite Loop

Visible Satellite

Click to enlarge.  This loop depicts a mesoscale vortex (in the shape of a spiral) crossing northern Illinois and invigorating storms across northwest Indiana.  A weak surface trough was inching eastward and providing a focus for more storms near the state line.  Outflow progressing northwest from the earlier thunderstorms to the east (near Lafayette, IN early in the loop) likely helped to enhance convergence across northwest Indiana and far east central Illinois.  With a very moist atmosphere, the nearly stationary to backbuilding storms that developed were extremely very efficient rain producers.
