Particularly Dangerous Situation (PDS) Severe Thunderstorm Watch

I have been quiet all day in regards to the threat of severe weather. Yesterday there a pretty good set up to our north and west and it never panned out. That bust made many of us including the SPC take today's set up and remain more cautious.

However the SPC did an upgrade to Moderate Risk for our area and north and northwest. The also have issued a PDS Thunderstorm Watch for areas north. A developing storm system near Chicago is producing very strong winds, dangerous lightning, and hail. The watch indicates gusts to 90 MPH and 2" hail is possible besides the threat of tornadoes.

Be alert for the next few hours and let's see if this moves our way.
