    Apr. 2-4 Severe Threat

    There was a warning issued for Montgomery and NW Boone at 7:09p.m if it was the same storm. Some noticeable formation to the left of that tornado on the ground. Satellite or outflow maybe?

    March 20-21 Potential Snow Event

    It was nice while it lasted. Temps have risen 5-7 degrees in the last hour, no more snow for now. Looks like far southern IN is getting it good.

    March 20-21 Potential Snow Event

    Snowing nicely here with accumulation on grassy areas only. We are many hours ahead of schedule with no rain, good odds of over-performing.

    Will you be staying up until sunrise to get another shot Jim?

    Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    Models did pretty decent for the 20-22 storm. GFS for the last several runs has consistently showed a storm rolling through here during that timeframe. Will believe it inside of 12 hours.

    Meteor over lower Michigan

    People will call 911 for anything that scares them. This includes scary looking green skies.
  7. This winter easily beats the last few I can remember. Brutal cold, ice, sleet, snow, blowing snow. We have 5-6 inches on the ground in most spots with higher drifts. Our creek froze up completely, thawed before last week's storm, and quickly froze up again. If we can manage one good 6+ storm before April it deserves an A.

    January 11-13 Winter Storm

    This was the best snowfall for most of us in Central IN. Gotta go back to 78 to top this one.

    January 11-13 Winter Storm

    This looks way more plausible with temps expected and typical of Central Indiana.

    December 25 - ? Arctic Cold

    Indy is 4 degrees away from the record, -12 for Jan 1 and 2. If it reaches -13 before midnight and after midnight does it break both records?

    Those -20s get any farther south and we'll be competing with January 1994 for Indiana temps, when the state record was set.

    Major Hurricane Irma- STORM MODE

    KBYX is reported at an elevation of 8 meters. Anyone know off hand what are the maximum winds a wsr88d can withstand? I tried to find this but it doesn't appear to be published.

    April 5 Severe Potential

    Quite the long track storm with tornado emergencies attached to it coming into the high risk area now.
