  1. FWA slightly overperformed at 91° with a predicted high 88°. There was no way of coming close to 1934's 99°.
  2. It must have packed a little punch. I just saw this LSR; SEVERAL LARGE TREES UPROOTED AND TRAILER OVERTURNED NEAR INTERSECTION OF MAYFLOWER ROAD AND SAMPLE STREET. TIME ESTIMATED FROM RADAR.
  3. I know four people who have/had it. One friend died (underlying health issues). Two others had extensive stays in icu. Both families were prepared for the worst, and both nearly didn’t make it. One is a female in her 50’s and healthy, although is/was a smoker. Covid cured her. The other is a male in his early 40’s and had no health issues. The fourth is an otherwise healthy male in his late 40’s. He simply isolated at home, and is just now back to 100% after several weeks.
  4. The Mayor's office just sent this out. A pretty good representation of what's happened and what will happen, IF people behave.
  5. Back in the middle of the craptastic winter we just experienced, several members here proclaimed that we would also have a craptastic spring. Easy call.
  6. Thanks for letting us know. I'll be tuning in.
  7. Might as well go for double digits and Alek won't have any clean clothes to wear until June.
  8. Danny Neal posted 3 funnel photos on LOT's NWS Chat. Not going to post them here without permission.
  9. It may have been mentioned before, but all of this rain in the GL region is not going to be welcome to those with Lake Michigan lakeside properties, especially with the seemingly persistent strong winds we've been experiencing this spring. I read somewhere that the mean lake level has gone up 5 1/2 feet since early 2013.
  10. It looks like we will finally be getting in on some of that action down this way. Even though it has rained for the past three days, the grand total was only 0.82". Model consensus is around 2" between tonight and Monday for Northeast IN.
  11. It is now getting to the time of the year that below climo is not a bad thing, as long as it's not 25° below climo!
  12. I'm not sure how they picked the areas from which they randomly picked the test subjects, but they did take some demographics into account: " In the first phase, more than 3,600 people were randomly selected and an additional 900 volunteers were recruited through outreach to the African American and Hispanic communities to more accurately represent state demographics."
  13. I was going to post the results of that Fairbanks study this morning, but have been busy dealing with it at work today. The study involved picking over 4,500 people around the state at random for testing. Of the 2.8%, 1.7% tested positive and 1.1% were positive for antibodies. Based on the study results of 45% being asymptomatic, there could have been up to 83,700 people in Indiana shedding at any one point. That doesn't sound too bad until you factor in people who refuse to wear masks, say it's not their problem, etc. As you said though, the major goal is getting the high risk people protected.
  14. FWA set a record low this morning of 29°, beating 1946's 31°. We have one more chance of frost tonight before I can put the garden sheets away.
