Just as you said that, look at it now. It weakened significantly. I’m watching the area out near La Grange now. That’s a nasty looking cell.

It's very windy here in the Heights with winds gusting at least to 50 mph,I've also seen some power flashes in the distance on the leading edge of the squall line.

yeah, bad timing - there are a lot of other sources, but waking up in the midst of it & searching for it was frustrating

a while back they said "new radar" would happen some time in April, now it says April/May - hopefully soon ?
