    The storm near the airport at around 3:30 triggered a tornado warning. We could see the heavy rotation in clouds followed by intense wind, just north of the field. It never fully materialized though, and raced off to the east at a good clip. The next cell took dead aim, with a swift gust front overtaking the south side of the field at the same time a CRJ was making a climbing left turn to the south off 27R. Seconds later it was a complete wash out, visibility so bad even the brilliant blue of a KLM A332 sitting on the taxiway was totally blocked out in the torrent of rain. Five minutes later, it was all clear.

      The tail end of this same system created near zero vis conditions and 100' ceilings at CVG all morning. We landed at around 11am and could barely see anything on the ramp.
