Another sign of danger... Record high temperatures and dew points for the date in many areas of those tornado watches.

Sunny, very windy and warm in mid-Missouri today. Flat iron steaks, asparagus and sliced potatoes due on the grill in about an hour.

Getting mighty dark here in DuPage County.

Yep, I can see it coming here in Will County .... looks like it's gonna be a rough afternoon.

Here's my game-time prediction for the Bears-Ravens at Soldier Field this afternoon:

Today's Bears vs. Raven's prediction:

Halftime Score: Ravens 16, Bears 9. The first half will be a battle of field position and field goals.

As the Bears and Raven's re-take the field for the second half, at least 3 different weather systems will collide over Soldier Field. The resulting tornado's, hail, lightning, thunder, flooding and more will make the "fog bowl" look like a walk in the park.

The damage to Soldier Field will be so extreme that it will no longer resemble a toilet bowl on the lake front. The Ty D Bowl man will make a come-back-from-the-grave final appearance to push the toilet bowl handle one more time and flush the entire game, both football teams and anyone dumb enough to actually attend a Bears game right down the proverbial crapper.

The NFL Commissioner's office in one of its most controversial calls in about three weeks will have no choice but to declare the Raven's the winners as both teams make their way to the bottom of Lake Michigan.

That's my game-time prediction and I'm sticking to it!

It’s unusually warm in Lansing, MI now. Quiet, cloudy, but the sun peeked through for about 10 seconds a few minutes ago...

Crazy.

But I remember a day like that in Mississippi. There was an issue with the base weather guys and a seasoned long timer pilot who told them, it’s 75 deg now and 45 deg on the other side of that front. He ignored the weather guys and shut down flying, tying the planes down.

The sky was green. The storm was violent. knocked down every pine tree.

We just didn’t have weather like that where I grew up. Well, hurricanes are a different story.

The fastest temp change I have witnessed was in Nebraska in ‘82 when it dropped from 90 to 40 in a half hour during a tornado warning.

The high this morning was 78 just west of St Louis.

The stadium announcer at Soldier Field just cautioned fans of the chance of a tornado in the area today.

Soldier Field’s GM says in event of tornado, fans will be moved to covered concourse areas and service tunnels under the stadium.

Soldier Field holds 63,000 people. According to NFLN it would take 15-20 minutes to evacuate everyone.

From wunderground:

November is a highly unusual time to be getting a dangerous severe weather outbreak, but people need to take this event seriously. The four previous November "High Risk" events (1989, 1994, 2002, and 2005) have resulted in a total of 148 tornadoes and 62 fatalities

The linked blog is a good source for real-time postings about warnings and active storms.

Unusually warm temperatures in the fall do more often than not result in a wild ride weather wise as the cold front passes.

I’m in Central NY and so far it is mild, in the 50’s, cloudy, and blustery.

I just told mr. mm that we need to batten down. Make sure anything we don’t want blown away is in the barn.

“I want Fall back.”

***

I would too except around here fall has been 30 degrees and snow.

I can live with 40s or 50s and even rain. Cold, snow and ice — you can keep it all.

First time I've ever seen Clifton, south of KKK, where our friends live, shown on a Weather Channel incident map....this northern wave should miss, but the one below looks spooky.

Don't think they have a basement either.

Everyone ok?

Clocked several 75+ MPH wind gusts here in N.E. Will County -- got pretty hairy here for awhile.

Just saw the pictures of Pekin, Streator and Washington (SW of Joliet) .... all or parts of those towns were completely levelled.

Entire neighborhoods were flattened & turned into kindling .... waiting to hear of any relief efforts to head down there.

Did lafayette get hit hard?
