All night I watched these storms pop up just south of me and to the east around O'Hare but it wasn't until after midnight that we got any rain where I live. I could even see it was raining hard less than a mile from me between Bode and Schaumburg Rd.

We had a good lightning show out in Naperville from about 11PM till about 2AM. Good amount of rain - no a flash flood or downpour by any means but a few hours of some good constant rain.

Had some small (pea to dime size) hail around 7:30pm. Otherwise, Schaumburg was just at the north edge of all the nasty stuff.

You must be south of me. I'm at Golf and Roselle. We had nothing.

The old weather thread was here for a bit after the recovery, but has now disappeared. Trying to go to it gives an error:
»Re: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot IV 2012

Anyways, has anyone seen the beta of the new weather service forecast pages? The old ones have a link where you can preview the new format, which also has a link where you can give comments.

Old: »forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.ph···0834&e=0
New: »preview.weather.gov/wtf/MapClick···0834&e=0

There is no notice about DSLR still being in limited mode, but I am pretty sure that some things were permanently lost in the whole "reclamation" period.

Otherwise I'm loving this weather!

Yeah, it was definitely there. PM a mod and maybe you can get it back, or at least get an answer as to why it was moved.

(I have seen some clear TOS-breakers get moved in there, too, like racist stuff and active discussion of piracy, so it's not just for spam.)

I can 3rd that it had reappeared. I put my post about the NWS update there, then wondered why nobody commented.

It looks like we are on the north edge of a 'ring of fire' setup. Lots of chances of storms for the next week and beyond.

It got pitch-black for a little bit but seems to have blown over.

Major Damage around here. From Lombard straight east to the city. Downed primaries, downed trees, street lights out. All the damage without the flood, which is the only good part.

Same here I thought it was going to be the same as on Friday. But not much all show.

reply to Parneli

The northern edge of the storm just brushed its sleeve in Elgin. The wind gushed for a few minutes, but there was no rain north of here. Driving down North Avenue (Rt. 64) was weird because most of the traffic lights were out; not even flashing, but out. Most of the shopping centers must have been shut down since there was none of the usual cross traffic. Most cars stopped at each light anyway. There were trees and branches all over the streets of Oak Park River Forest. My 87-year old father had to walk up to his 5th floor condo since power was out, and may not be restored for two days.

Elmhurst. South of the RR tracks no power since 1pm.
Not the metro tracks but the commercial line south of St. Charles Rd.

Typing this on my att phone which has no data service but linked through Verizon air card.

Called con Ed and there is no ETA.

We have our fridge and one box fan powered by a generator from neighbors. Need to get one of our own. We are in elmhurst for 13 months

Disconnected batteries from backup pumps as wells were dry. No beep noise n will be sleeping in the basement.

I think I'll want a portable gen but wired up to a panel so I can drive circuits automatically.

We got lots of hail and I cleared out water drains around the block.
