May 31- Cloud Tops in Grand Rapids, MI reach up to 55,000 feet

Cloud tops in Grand Rapids, MI have reached up to 55,000 feet with the storms occurring, especially near the thumb of the 'glove' of Michigan above.
55,000 feet is uncommon, especially for areas like Michigan.

May 31- VIL returns in Grand Rapids, MI indicative of hail

VIL (Vertically Integrated Liquid) values are very high up with the storms occurring in Grand Rapids, Michigan. VIL is a way to determine hail. The higher the VIL value, the more likelihood of hail and larger the hail size.
As we can see, a storm on the Grand Rapids radar is past 65 units. This means that hail is likely occurring in that area.

SERVICE DOPPLER RADAR INDICATED A

THE WARNING INCLUDES AREAS 
SURROUNDING THESE LOCATIONS...
  SANFORD...            PLEASANT VALLEY...    OIL CITY...
  MIDLAND...

May 31- Storm Aftermath (Explanation of why nothing happened)

The storms that were supposed to carry an extreme damaging wind threat did not form.
The cold front is currently in West Indiana as I post.
Why did nothing happen?

For the Great Lakes areas such as Chicago, it was all cloud cover.
Clouds out ahead of the system brought the storm threat to minimal. Not nearly enough instability was generated to support even strong storms.

For other areas, it was the same thing.
Even right now, a massive wall of clouds is way out ahead of the cold front, also cutting out on instability. However, in those areas, daytime sunshine has already made the atmosphere unstable, so stronger storms are more likely for those areas in the Ohio Valley.

May 31, 2011 Severe Weather Forecast

There is a moderate risk of severe weather in the 'glove' of Michigan.

DISCUSSION
An upper low and shortwave trough will eject into the area forecast for severe weather today. Deep level flow fields appear to be favorable for organized severe storms with damaging winds and hail.
It appears to be that storms will increase in coverage as the cold front ejects into western upper Michigan and Central Wisconsin, with an increase in intensity as the storms move through North IL, IN, and east across lower MI.
The storm modes appear to be bowing segments and supercells early on, which will transition into a more widespread severe wind threat. It was, in the end, the wind threat that initiated the moderate risk area.
As the storms turn linear, along with other factors, the tornado threat is not favorable for tornadoes.

May 25: Chase Spot- Vandalia, IL

Today's Chase Spot is Vandalia, Illinois.
Located in today's Moderate Risk and the highest tornado threat risk.

May 25 Moderate Risk Severe Weather

DISCUSSION

A large upper low over the Central Plains will shift eastward and weaken as it does so.
A broad scale of severe weather is expected across the moderate risk areas today. The main threats are tornadoes and large hail in the moderate risk area. There is the possibility of scattered strong/damaging tornadoes today.
As of right now, a band of convection is moving north through Illinois and Iowa. As the storms fan out into the Ohio Valley and Upper Great Lakes, the airmass ahead of the storms will be conductive for severe weather.
Later in the day, more storm initiation will occur to the west, inside Missouri. Strong instability and a 70-kt mid level jet stream will allow these storms to go supercellular and with bowing storms. Low level rotation will be enhanced by low level shear, and there is a chance for strong/large tornadoes.
This second band should cross the Mississippi River into the evening. Severe threat will decrease at that point.
