We've got a thunderstorm (or possibly thunderstorms) working their way through the Metro right now. I'm not usually home to watch storm coverage so this was kind of a re-education. I'm sure it's been said before but I'll second it: severe weather is like porn for local stations.
There was a possible tornado touchdown near the Wisconsin border with many reports of funnel clouds. This was reported with the fanciest set of radar options you've ever seen in your life. Vivid colors. Hail sizes (estimated) popping up on neighborhoods. Long arrows that presumably showed vectors. And (new to me) ominous circles that showed 'mid-level rotation', a cluster of which might just have been showing a tornado.
Everyone is ok over here and I hope everyone is ok throughout the metro. My biggest concern is the tension level that the stations cause throughout their audience with wild warnings and predictions of doom for everyone. Let's keep calm until we have reason to get excited, ok?
