    It's a cold air funnel type of day across Northern IN. Here's a couple of pics from about an hour ago at LAF.

    Agree with the beautiful weather in late September. I call it dull, but I also find it very enjoyable. (Other than weather extremes, I like dull). It gives me a last chance to do outside, summer type activities. For example, the fishing is great at that time of year.

    I consider September as dull as August, then the fun begins again in October, tracking cold snaps, anticipation of winter, second severe season, etc.

    I've been a CoCoRaHS volunteer since May, 2006. I went to a Ft. Wayne Tincaps game tonight and had the same thing happen with an OFB there. Coincidentally, the WCM from IWX was sitting in the section next to me and we were pointing at our phones and at the line of cumulus to each other and waving it toward us. The people sitting around us probably thought we were nuts.

    Here's the entire list: https://www.weather.gov/lot/headlines
  8. Per IWX, it was a national blackout affecting all NWS services. Everything's been moved to backup and should be available now.
  9. ....and there it is, you beat me to it Joe. I just told my Director to expect some tornado warnings even though SPC doesn't have ANY threat in Marginal risk area.
  10. Mike Ryan at IND mentions the concern of a rotating storm or two tomorrow afternoon in their CWA. However, although SPC mentions it, they keep the low threat much farther south. REMAIN A TOUCH CONCERNED ABOUT A THREAT FOR A FEW CELLS TO ROTATE WITH FAVORABLE HODOGRAPH PROFILES...INCREASED SHEAR AND HELICITY VALUES...AND LCLS LIKELY TO SETTLE NEAR 1000FT...ESPECIALLY BY LATE DAY. OVERALL INSTABILITY LEVELS MAY NOT BE QUITE ENOUGH TO SUPPORT...BUT CONSIDERING THE PRESENCE OF A DEEP TROPICAL AIRMASS AND THAT MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA IS LIKELY TO BE TO THE RIGHT OF THE WEAKENING SURFACE WAVE TRACK WHERE SHEAR MAY BRIEFLY MAXIMIZE...THIS WILL BE SOMETHING TO KEEP AN EYE ON TUESDAY.

    It looks like you got hit late this afternoon/evening. The rains trained along the boundary just south of me this evening.

    It was beginning to get dry up here too, although we've had much more rain in the past couple of weeks than you. We got dumped on last night. The radar under estimated how much fell in this area. How much IMBY? Think pi. Lets play guess where the boundary was:

    Ha! 98° is relief. Now that don't have to work outside much, this is my kind of summer weather.

    Wow. Sounds like a prolonged recovery. I'm glad that you are feeing well enough to be able to post. I was worried after your original post about the wreck then we didn't hear from you.
