Macoupin-Montgomery County SkyWarn is Active

No one likes severe weather; unless, of course you’re a storm spotter! In all seriousness, severe weather gets the adrenalin pumping, but nobody wants the damage that can accompany severe weather. With that said, Macoupin and Montgomery counties are no strangers to severe weather events.

Wednesday, April 27 and Saturday April 30 saw the activation on the newly formed Macoupin-Montgomery County SkyWarn Net.

On Wednesday, April 27 a funnel cloud was spotted just east of Raymond, IL and Paul, KC9YCP was able to give live, ground truth reports back to the National Weather Service Office in St. Louis regarding the status of the wall cloud associated with the storm. Fortunately no damage reports were received by the net. The number of check-ins and the accuracy of the weather reports was outstanding! Saturday, April 30 turned out to be mostly a non-event for Macoupin and Montgomery counties but Madison County did get significant hail.

Anyone with an interest in weather, community service and keeping an eye to the sky is not only welcome to participate, but you’re encouraged to get involved with the SkyWarn net.
