  1. You beat me to it. I just popped in to post that. Makes sense and looks interesting for the subforum.
  2. Although I usually don't have much to complain about during fall, I figured we should have a place to banter. The IND discussion this afternoon had some sound scientific advice: SO, IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE OUTSIDE THIS EVENING... LISTEN TO YOUR MOM AND WEAR YOUR COAT.
  3. We could, but with the winds expected to stay up, I'm not planning covering the ol' sensitive vegetation.
  4. Good to see everyone back and ready for winter. The gut says wild, but I don't know how wet. Buckeye, did your daughter graduate? Hopefully you won't have to go back to the hellhole that is Marion, IN. Caveat: The campus is very nice.
  5. Apparently, "flash drought" is being used to describe the current conditions across the South by the National Drought Mitigation Center, a sudden increase in drought conditions as compared the normal slow onset drought. NOAA and the University of Colorado published a summary paper on research concerning the flash drought the Plains endured in 2017. I had never heard this term used before reading this article: https://www.wishtv.com/news/national/flash-drought-worsening-across-14-southern-us-states/

  10. Record daily highs for IND are in jeopardy and the all-time October record may also be threatened on Tuesday. INDY RECORD HIGHS: 9/30: 89 (1971) 10/1: 89 (1897) 10/2: 89 (1953) OCTOBER: 91 (10/8/2007)
  11. I imagine that the farmers in our area are thankful for this dry weather and much above normal temperatures continuing into late September to allow their corn to mature properly. Most fields around here were planted very late.
  12. Could be more than garden variety. But seriously, I don't know what happened and I don't care, but don't be such a stranger. Severe Weather Statement National Weather Service Chicago/Romeoville 118 PM CDT Thu Sep 12 2019 ILC141-121845- /O.CON.KLOT.TO.W.0016.000000T0000Z-190912T1845Z/ Ogle IL- 118 PM CDT Thu Sep 12 2019 ...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 145 PM CDT FOR SOUTHWESTERN OGLE COUNTY... At 118 PM CDT, a severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado was located over Polo, or 8 miles southwest of Mount Morris, moving east at 25 mph. HAZARD...Tornado. SOURCE...Radar indicated rotation.
  13. In the Emergency Management world, we call them Sheriffnadoes. Law enforcement would make great eyes in the sky to supplement our spotters/chasers since they are already mobile, but they won't come to any trainings to know what to look for. They seem to have the mindset of "I don't need training, I already know everything I need to know about weather." This happens waaaayy too often. It causes the public to have lower confidence in our legitimate reports.
  14. RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE INDIANAPOLIS IN 138 AM EDT THU SEP 12 2019 ...RECORD HIGH MINIMUM TEMPERATURE SET WEDNESDAY AT INDIANAPOLIS... THE MINIMUM TEMPERATURE OF 73 DEGREES ON WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 11 SET A NEW RECORD HIGH MINIMUM FOR THE DATE.

  15. Same with the tiny storm near LAF. It wanted to go badly and even formed a brief funnel. Most of the risk area in Indiana was socked until late afternoon and it became obvious that any cell would have a tough time.
