    Agree, as I was also checking velocity. It just surprises me that it was that close to radar and there was little discernible low level rotation depicted.

    There may be a fujiwhara dance with the low overhead and the one riding up the coast, making for an unusually dreary mid-July weekend.

    July 19-20 Severe Weather

    here is a very short video of a tornado near Wabash, the county to my west. I caught the wall cloud as it entered our county, but it soon dissipated.
  13. You know that it's a boring severe year when you are hoping to see a cold air funnel/landspout.
  14. LOT techs have been trying to fix their radar for a couple of days now. They keep saying it should be fixed in a few hours, only to push it back. Maybe they should just smack it like I used to do my old tv to try to get it operational.
  15. Not only has there been a dearth of severe, the past three weeks has also been very dry, other than the Southsiders and Hoosier country, depicted by this IWX map.
