Not in Illinois, but the storms in Missouri yesterday were crazy. Intense shifting winds and rain just rolled through suddenly- one minute it was calm, the next minute the tree outside our window was getting yanked back and forth like an overeager puppy had it. This was accompanied by driving rain.

There were lots of limbs down yesterday, and lots of people lost power or internet. It did a great job washing the cars though.

Yeah, that was apparently my fault. It would be calm here until I walked out to my car, then gale force winds and pouring rain. Soon as I got in my car it'd die down. Once I parked and got out, gale force winds and pouring rain again. That happened at least two or three times. My bad.

Not common, but not that rare, either.

The Great Lakes are known for November weather.

Tornado activity often has a secondary peak around October and November.

An acquaintance lives 40-50 miles downwind of Washington, IL.  yesterday afternoon he was finding debris in his yard from there (mail with Washington addresses, etc.)

Just...wow.

It was crazy how quickly that stuff blew through here in St. Louis. Living in the midwest all my life I've easily gotten use to keeping an eye on the sky when it's that warm/humid/windy. I walked into the store and I saw the darkish clouds way on the horizon. Less that 10 minutes later the building is shaking and it's raining sideways.

Your image shows fewer than 100 for the month of November over 62 years. Yesterday had reports of 68 tornadoes. That's as many in a single day as they've had in 62 years put together. Your "meh" just doesn't cut it here.

Illinois here, storms went north and south of the small town i live in, all we had was a power outage and high winds. I feel for the people of Washington and pekin. Washington got crushed. You never know whats going to happen i guess.
 
2013-11-18 09:49:12 AM  
I read "unseasonable" to mean that these tornadoes cannot be seasoned.

I read it the same way. I was thinking that's why we have so many fewer deaths due to natural disasters, we negotiate. Hey tornadoes, we'll keep alleys open that go to trailer parks, like bowling, and you stay way from important stuff like power plants, water treatment facilities, and my country club? Deal?.....

My point is it's an exceptional event. Oh, you must think I'm confusing weather with climate. That's cute.

Yesterday morning it was nice and sunny as I went to the grocery so I left my windows down in the car. When I go back out to the car 15 minutes later it's still nice and sunny but the seats to my car are soaked!

Not exactly unseasonable.  Tornadoes happen when there's transition.  Transitions happen in spring and fall.

That's a strange mental image. I'm picturing you sitting like Bob Geldof in The Wall, for some reason, in an otherwise empty garage.

Same thing happened to me.  I live in Michigan and every time I would go out in the car it would start pouring rain.  Three times yesterday this happened.  As soon as I get home the rain would stop.
