  1. It's interesting that today's 5 preliminary tor reports were all well outside the svr watch box but within the marginal risk.
  2. Clinton county dispatch confirms damage in Forest IN, which is ne of Frankfort per WTHR This would have been from the confirmed tornado heading for Russiaville, which then lifted.
  3. Heading for Russiaville area by 9 p.m. if it stays on the ground.
  4. And praise for IWX for their discussion earlier today that said the greatest threat would be along the U.S.24 corridor and just south.
  5. I sure hope Indiana Beach amusement park officials are aware that a funnel cloud is heading directly at them and have safety procedures in place this Sat. evening.
  6. How ironically appropriate. In that photo the tornado is passing through a large wind turbine field.
  7. I too think that meso discussion was too conservative based on my experience with warm fronts in this region.
  8. In addition to the present storms near Louisville the 20z HRRR now shows a line of storms forming around 00z on the IN/IL line and moving east across the state and into MI. Don't know how much faith to put in this, but it hasn't been as trigger happy as the 3 km NAM in this scenario so it might be something to watch. And radar now shows some returns from cells starting to form in Iroquois County IL on the IN line.
  9. It would be nice to have an upper westward facing room in a tower of the Galt house in Louisville for the next hour or so. Additional heavy rain will not be good for Washington County and the Salem IN area hit hard by flooding Friday evening.
  10. Svr warnings now starting to be issued on the KY/TN line area se of EVV for the storms in that moisture plume moving ne. Some good surface CAPE in southern IN. Will have to see what occurs. Mid level lapse rates are nil. 75/68 here in Indpls area.
  11. 75/68 and partly sunny here after mid day t storms in the Indpls area as I watch moisture advection from EVV area moving ne to see if it can produce any svr wx locally.
  12. Meso discussion out now for se IN into OH down into KY with strong winds main threat.
  13. Nice outflow boundary from current MCS readily seen on radar and may play a role later this evening.
  14. HRRR not as favorable and it was more accurate with the prior system....although 70 dews are near EVV at this time moving ne and a t storm is approaching me from the sw. Salem IN down in Washington County got over 7 inches of rain in a few hours last night with serious flash flooding. WTHR has had info and photos. With the way storms are rapidly moving ne it is possible a good chunk of IN could get into the warm sector this afternoon and destabilize before the cold front comes through later on with some evening t storms.
  15. May you successfully bag both tornadoes and morels!
