I am *VERY* surprised no one has started a thread to comment on the very intense bow echo that just slammed through all of southern MN, and is racing into western WI at the moment. This thing has produced several +85KNT wind gusts...

On a serious note, yeah, that thing is awesome. Taking a look at the meso analysis, this thing SHOULD be able to be kept alive for quite a bit longer, we'll see...

EAU REALLY got slammed by this thing: +64KNTS on the base velocity scan with reflecitivies reaching 65DBz right at the apex of the bow, and well defined book-end vorticies. I am sure they had a solid 90-100MPH wind gust somewhere around there.

I'm not the best at interpreting radial velocity values, but check this out:
With min value of -94, has the radar detected 94 knot straight line winds??? There is blue in the colors as well. I haven't ever seen blue from straight line winds before except from hurricanes.

In sisseton SD now. For anyone who likes spc meso page numbers check them out right now. 60 on the supercell composite. 7500 sbcape. 35 on convergence. But can anything get going...noooooooo. Cin starting to go away. It is damn hot is all I know. Going to drift ese now I think.
