  1. Speaking of LOT, I have to share the graphic they posted on their Facebook page tonight. Of course, the replies are peppered with comments about being attacked by boomerang pizzas and jalapeno poppers.
  2. The radar looks like heavy rain may be more widespread than the cams were predicting.
  3. Had a noisy storm roll through around 3-4 AM. Although it woke me, it was music too my ears. I actually got up and watched it for a few minutes. Unfortunately, it only dropped four tenths, which is not enough to be a drought buster, but at least I won't have to water my garden for a couple of days.
  4. IWX is jumping on the bandwagon. I honestly haven't heard of a "flash drought" until this year.
  5. Widespread damage throughout the county north of me (Whitley) and the southern part of Ft. Wayne/Allen Co. FWA rainfall - 2.03" My place 20 miles SW of FWA 0.01" Also, this is just west of Fort Wayne: PRELIMINARY LOCAL STORM REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTHERN INDIANA 1101 AM EDT TUE JUN 14 2022 ..TIME... ...EVENT... ...CITY LOCATION... ...LAT.LON... ..DATE... ....MAG.... ..COUNTY LOCATION..ST.. ...SOURCE.... ..REMARKS.. 1018 PM TSTM WND DMG 3 ESE ARCOLA 41.09N 85.24W 06/13/2022 ALLEN IN NWS EMPLOYEE TRAIN BLOWN OFF THE TRACKS NEAR BASS ROAD.

  6. SPC has officially declared the storm a derecho.
  7. Watching the Field Museum earth cam. Constant lightning. Alek's getting a show
  8. ChicagoWX must be wringing his shirt out a lot today
  9. Snippet from IND's discussion this afternoon. I didn't realize that it has been 10 years since the area got into the upper 90's. THE LONG TERM WILL START WITH POSSIBLY THE HOTTEST TEMPERATURES IN NEARLY A DECADE ACROSS CENTRAL INDIANA.
  10. I believe he's using this: https://xmacis.rcc-acis.org/#
  11. It's pretty impressive when your days 4 and 5 point forecast is 97°, especially in mid-June. EDIT: Both 98° now
  12. Debris signature on the warned storm in Rush Co. IN.
  13. Feels great. Too bad that you won't be here next week for our mid 90's.
  14. We missed rain to the southeast earlier and now whiffing to the northwest with flooding rains. Hopefully will see some scraps later tonight.
  15. You and ChicagoWX’s buddy Chad called out IND on NWSChat last night for calling it a “large and dangerous tornado” when it was clearly a small and weak one (landspout?). They said they issued based on info they had at that time, that they were very busy, that they issued a regular warning 10 minutes later, and finally gave half-hearted mea culpa.
  16. One tornado, two states. The ef-2 damage occurred in Illinois. It was on the ground for quite awhile. ...NWS DAMAGE SURVEY FOR MAY 19 2022 TORNADO EVENT... .WABASH COUNTY ILLINOIS TO GIBSON AND KNOX COUNTIES IN INDIANA... RATING: EF-2 ESTIMATED PEAK WIND: 115 MPH PATH LENGTH /STATUTE/: 26 MILES PATH WIDTH /MAXIMUM/: 300 YARDS FATALITIES: 0 INJURIES: 0 START DATE: MAY 19 2022 START TIME: 931 PM CDT START LOCATION: 0.6 MILES SOUTHWEST OF KEENSBURG ILLINOIS END DATE: MAY 19 2022 END TIME: 957 PM CDT/1057 PM EDT END LOCATION: 0.4 MILES WEST OF IONA INDIANA SURVEY SUMMARY: NUMEROUS TREES WERE UPROOTED OR SNAPPED OFF, MANY OF WHICH FELL ON HOMES AND STRUCTURES. DOZENS OF POWER POLES SNAPPED OFF. MINOR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO BUILDINGS. SEVERAL PIVOT IRRIGATION SYSTEMS FLIPPED.
  17. I'm not trying to talk you out of it, but Stebo's right about crappy chasing territory and SPC's being pretty wishy-washy about the possibility of something popping the cap. But if it happens, Katie bar the door (and protect your windshield).
  18. You called that one. The real heat isn't going to reach this far east, but I'll take my low-mid 80's for multiple days.
  19. I'm happy with finally having a pattern change that truly flips sensible weather from cool and rainy. I just checked my CoCoRaHS records and realized that until yesterday, we have had at least a trace of precip in 38 out of the past 50 days. That includes a stretch of 16 days in a row (3/30-4/14) and 22 out of 23 days (3/23-4/14) with at least a trace. I'd say that's a legit complaint. Now on to summer!
  20. Yeah, well I expect it in March and April, which were in fact quite windy. But we're barreling through May with yet still almost daily winds gusting over 20 and many days 30. Guess I should have taken it to the complaint thread, in which I'm about to post another complaint concerning precip and clouds.
  21. I'm looking forward to no wind. It was very gusty here again today.
  22. FWA hit 100° in 14 years since 1909, or about once every 8 years, so yeah, we're due. The longest stretch they went without hitting 100° was 17 years (1963-1979). They also hit 99° nine times since 1909, which equates to once every 5 years of hitting at least 99°. Since 2012, the yearly highs at FWA have been fairly pedestrian: 2013-95° 2014-93° 2015-90° 2016-94° 2017-95° 2018-97° 2019-95° 2020-95° 2021-92°
  23. And it's no better to your south. IND posted this little tidbit on their FB page: "It's been a cool stretch into April so far with no 70° days. Last time this happened was 1990 when the first 70° day didn't happen until the 22nd."
