Is it just me, or is the line that passed through Chicago (and now moving through Michigan) looking sort of derecho-like? Bow echo and long-lived, with loads of wind damage reports rolling in.

Weather conditions near the Ottawa Valley are favourable for severe thunderstorms this afternoon through early this evening. The main threat is heavy downpours.

It may or may not have been a derecho. Because from what ive seen it didnt have sustained winds of 60mph, only gusts of 70 to 75mph. A drecho has to have sustained winds over 60mph and it has to do that for 6hrs. I dont think this quite did that. Or it may have but not past Dtx /toledo area.

NWS and news reports confirming that it was a derecho. Signature just had that evil look to it when I first saw it yesterday.

If you check out the wind reports for yesterday on the SPC site (http://www.spc.noaa.gov/climo/reports/yesterday.html), the distinct path is pretty impressive. (I would have imbedded the graphic into this message, but haven't yet figured out how to do that - any help on how to do that would be appreciated)

Yes but not very much past central ohio. You have to look to see if it had sustained winds over 60mph. No doubt it was absolutley insane though

EDIT: I appear to be mistaken. I just looked at a few thins and it appears that sustained winds of 60mph and widspread wind damage occured from Nebraska all the way into Ohio/PA and to a lesser extent into maryland
