Storms are rolling across northern Illinois today, bringing wind, rain, lightning, hail and the threat of tornadoes. This storm moved across northern Kane County and southern McHenry County about 9:30 this morning. Rotation within the storm caused the National Weather Service to issue a tornado warning, which was recalled within a few minutes.
I saw the storm approaching via weather radar on the internet and went out to meet it with camera in hand. I couldn't get a good view of this particular storm cell other than a shelf of clouds along the intake area. But it did produce a pretty good lightning show as it passed.
More storms headed this way. We'll see about getting more pictures.
