The National Weather Service in Indianapolis IN has confirmed a tornado near Moorseville in Morgan County Indiana on April 8th 2020.

  3. I don't know anything behind ILX's discussion, but from my own experience, if I agree with SPC I'm going to refer you to it. It saves me time and allows me to focus on other things that need to be done. Now, if I disagree, I might spend more time discussing it. Either way some people are more verbose than others. (There was a time when AFDs had a 30 line limit, max.)
  4. IND reached 67 degrees today, destroying the previous record of 62. The old record of 62 was last reached in 2019.
  5. Could be, or multiple servers. Too common these days. Wasn't in the office so I don't know for sure what's going on.
  6. Ok at the moment here at home. I noticed problems with the wx story last night. More than likely another problem with the servers. Hopefully it's fixed now.
  7. Yes, this. The event is happening over a 36 hour period. Also, when issuing a warning (ignoring impacts for a moment) the average has to be 6". So 4-6" is an average of 5" which would be advisory. (Of course impacts could change things).

  10. Indy made it to 91 today, breaking another daily record
  11. Indy has broken the daily record of 89 with a high of 90 so far.
  12. Not at work today, but there was a flash flood warning in effect for Madison Co due to parts of the county getting >2" in less than hour. Warnings often cover larger areas due to anticipated storm movement, so it could've weakened or something like that.
  13. Agree. It was an event, not a big one, but still severe wx... https://www.weather.gov/ind/may192019severe
