  1. It probably won't match the 40+ in the subforum from a couple of weeks ago, but we should end up in double digit tornadoes in Indiana. IND has teams looking at Rush, Bartholomew, Decatur, and Hancock Counties today. EDIT: Survey team found EF-2 damage south of Rushville.

    It's getting real ugly in Southern Indiana. A swarm of tornadoes and heavy rain yesterday and areas receiving over 6" today.

    Anomalous cold? Yes. Hyperbole? Yes. Weather is just not good for palm trees.
  4. Seeing reports of a possible touchdown in Henry County, Ohio about 4 hours ago
  5. Could the filtered sun due to the smoke dampen convective perimeters as compared to what the CAMs are predicting?

    I pointed it out to my wife earlier this evening and she made the astute comment that it must be much drier up there than around here.

    June 2019 General Discussion

    Where is the obligatory CFSv2 from 5/31 for June? Without posting the crappy maps, it looks like it's calling for near normal temps and near normal precip with below normal precip for the northern part of the subforum.
  8. This morning's 3k NAM really pumps up the SB/MUCAPE into the 4000J/kg range in Northern Indiana tomorrow afternoon and depicts quite the squall line stretching across the state and dropping straight south from the IN/MI state line and moving well into southern IN before weakening. I can foresee SPC extending their slight risk through Indiana into Ohio as well as up into the ORD area with the afternoon Day 2 for winds.

    At about the same time you caught that a friend of mine was on the cell northwest of you in Wabash County

    No one can complain about lack of active weather, that's for sure.

    Four tornadoes confirmed in the IWX CWA. I was at IWX for a meeting when the survey team notified that they came across definite EF-3 damage with the Blackford/ Wells tornado. The team then went to Wabash County and confirmed the fourth, an EF-1 in Wabash County. Our county was surrounded by tornadoes, but we came out unscathed. Unfortunately, with my job comes the duty of protecting our county, I was chomping at the bit to chase that Grant County tornado, but couldn't. It ended up being very photogenic.

    Yeah, I'm being facetious. I would not be able to tolerate San Diego weather. Unlike you though, I like spring weather and a few 75° days after winter is really enjoyable.
