  1. Meteor over lower Michigan

    Congrats to all who got to see or feel the effects of the meteor this evening. I wonder if any of the Russian meteor was found after if exploded in that incident. I got to see a meteor (bolide) like this in Whitley county IN in the early 90's.
  2. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Way back at the start of winter I remember Tom Skilling saying that this winter might produce episodes of major temp swings and a variety of precip. Looks like we are certainly going to validate that. IND already talking about heavy rain and flooding potential with the upcoming system.
  3. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Had 2 inches here in ne Indpls metro from the system. Hope the lake effect can help those of you downwind.
  4. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    Yep...coming up on forty year anniversary of the storm later this month. I presume you are referencing the Midwest Blizzard of Jan. 24-27, 1978. I was here in Indy metro for that one, too.
  5. January 6-8 Snow/Ice/Rain

    I don't think so. Good blob of precip just west of I-55 now moving e/ne. Weather advisory for me here in Indpls wasn't scheduled to begin till ten eastern time tonight.
  6. January 6-8 Snow/Ice/Rain

    34 here now. As rain moves in it will certainly be a skating rink on these cold surfaces. Then a forecast of 1-2 inches of snow and tenth of an inch of ice. Keep those reports of observations and traffic problems coming in.
  7. December 25 - ? Arctic Cold

    Local FOX news met says Indy's 5 nights below zero are the most since 1990 and 2018 to date is the third coldest in 90 years with average temp of 2.7 behind 1887 and 1928 that had one degree average.

    Pattern has gotta change sometime. Maybe we'll get a good trough in the west and an early svr season at least farther south if not yet here. IND is already advertising their all day severe wx symposium at Butler University for St. Patrick;s Day.
  9. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    This snippet from the IND afternoon AFD supports what Hoosier was referencing regarding this storm in an earlier post. Long term period will likely feature a brief warmup over the latter portion of the weekend as heights build and low pressure develops to our west. This system will move through the area late in the weekend with a variety of precipitation types possible. Given the recent extreme cold, this could be disruptive as the ground will not have much time to warm up before onset of potential precipitation - this could lead to rapid freezing of any rain on roadways and other surfaces, even with above freezing air temperatures. Given the system is so far out, any forecast at this point is low confidence and will likely change significantly, especially given the models` recent poor performance with the details of the extreme cold. This will merit watching as the week wears
  10. December 25 - ? Arctic Cold

    IND started the wind chill warning at 00z this evening instead of the progged 03z time because of how temps are falling. -5 here now.

    WNDU tv skyview 16 live shot of Michigan City is a complete whiteout.
  13. Winter 2017-18 Medium/Long Range Disco

    Well, i'm thinking ice for someone a bit north because of the depth of this massive cold air in retreat. But I think as I look at today's GFS run for Jan. 8-9 the main point is the geographic extensiveness of the system.
  14. December 28-31 Snow Systems

    Seeing 2-3 inch totals from Indpls northward in central IN. Frankfort in Clinton Co. seems highest at 5.1 inches at present.
  15. December 28-31 Snow Systems

    Yeah, good banding of heavier precip from central IN westward to central IL. 3-5 inches of snow predicted here locally. Roads already a mess.
