I'm in Illinois right now and the weather is starting to get a little bit dicey... Over the next 3-4 hours it will really get interesting. I just hope this scary system dies down a little. Stay safe everyone. And I will report from the Chicagoland area with anything that happens.

Living in tornado alley my whole life I must say that tornado systems at nighttime has to be one of the scariest things around. Kinda like swimming in the ocean at night (you really don't know what's underneath you)...

very true I think ats should have a meteorological forum to report on such events with experienced meteorologist and storm chasers. I envision a fully self supporting community maybe its a dream

Living in the East with trees and hills blocking your view of it can be scary as well. I'd much rather the storms be around during the day. Stay safe!

I tried to have create a weather watch thread last year similar to the quake watch thread, and nobody really posted in it sadly. I love weather and would've loved to see at least a thread for it get active.

the problem is people only care about weather when its canceling plans or endangering lives, (not to say that's wrong however its unfortunate) Because we live a closed system and something that happens here effect what happens somewhere else. Also I believe we have made monumental steps in weather forecasting and if anyone is close to predicting the future as it accurately will happen its meteorologist. These subjects are important and frequent ATS I just wish there was a larger medium for the production of factual information and caring people

thinking im going to stay updating didn't make it far enough into Arkansas I have a few nice pics of wall clouds but I am very concerned about the safety of the larger audience of ATS and believe I can do better service by reporting. Stay safe and please send location and I will give your locations accurate updates thanks
