URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
   Tornado Watch Number 104
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
   305 PM EDT Thu Mar 30 2017

   The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

   * Tornado Watch for portions of 
     Central and southern Indiana
     Western Ohio

   * Effective this Thursday afternoon and evening from 305 PM until
     1000 PM EDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A few tornadoes possible
     Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
     Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible

   SUMMARY...The air mass will continue to gradually destabilize along
   and south of a northward-moving warm front across Indiana and
   western Ohio. Aside from a damaging wind/some hail risk, moderately
   strong low-level shear will support the possibility of tornadoes,
   particularly near the warm front.

   The tornado watch area is approximately along and 55 statute miles
   north and south of a line from 10 miles west northwest of Terre
   Haute IN to 35 miles north of Dayton OH. For a complete depiction of
   the watch see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS
   WOU4).

   PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

   REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
   tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
   area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
   threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
   and possible warnings.

The tornado warned cell will be outrunning the warm front soon, so it likely has a limited window of opportunity yet to produce.

Got just North of town and could see those cells collapsing so I headed East.  Was on the Blackford, Delaware county cells as they moved up through Madison county.  They got a little to far away for a weekday unplanned chase but was right under some decent rotation and followed a couple of wall clouds for about 30 miles.  Very strong updrafts kicked in in Northern Madison county.  Was quite the sight.  Was a good shakedown, both of my camera mounts fell off lol.  But got a few good shots I think.  I'll upload them in a bit.

The radar depiction looked really good when the storm was in Northern Delaware/Blackford/Jay Counties. I would have loved to been on that one, but was stuck spotting hailers north of the front for EMA here. Would like to see pics if you got any good ones.

If that photo was a tornado it went unwarned as the only tor warning in this part of IN was for northern Delaware county.  Looking north from my home in Fortville I saw a lowering but could not determine if it was rotating so did not call it in as a possible wall cloud.

Gotta love that even with a Midwest storm system, where are 50% of the day's tornados? 47.85 North!  Monroe Washington.

Move was work related, have a nice house up in Saylorsburg, PA (which is in the Poconos).  Did do pretty well from the snowstorms a few weeks ago, ended up with 18".

Congrats. Looks like a nice place. The old neighborhood is not the same anymore. The LAF posters have moved north. You have headed east. Well we will muddle through like we always do.
