Mesoscale Update

Band of storms dropping in from the north is moving into an environment favorable to at least maintain severe wind gusts as well as some hail potential.  AllSky CAPE parameter shows the line moving into airmass with 2500 J/kg, similar to values given by earlier ILX special sounding and recent modified NUCAPS sounding.  Latest RAP shows DCAPEs up to 1400 J/kg, indicating good potential for severe wind gusts. Had a couple of reports of blackout conditions from blowing field dirt along I-55 near Litchfield.
