Convective Initiation! Will open NOW thread for this very interesting day. Isolated cell over White County, Ind. w/ 55dbz core just popped up - a sign of events to come overnight, or just an anomaly?
It must be a slow rumble, KLOT's doppler is still in clear air mode. The position of the warm front reminds me of 4/20/04. Just give it a couple hours, and a few tiny, but dangerous supercells will pop south of CHI.
This just in:

Good guess on the hail size, Andrew.
