    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Just a heads up:

Later this afternoon into the evening, most of southern WI, nothern IL and lower MI could potentially see some widespread severe weather, with the main threat being wind damage. Some hail is possible, but until the mid levels of the atmosphere cool down tonight it wouldn't be very big. An isolated weak tornado is possible also. Right now (1245) the outlook is marginal at best due to the atmosphere being "capped" by warm air, which prevents storm updrafts from going up. This will likely change later this afternoon, and if/when it does then the storms should fire quickly.

Overall, it's a crapshoot right now. Nothing is set in stone, but I figured a heads up is in order.
