Yep...weather models predict four to six inches of rain for Indpls area over the upcoming seven day period.  Ruins my desire to go hiking.

Chad Evans included these radar and velocity images in a writeup he did for the 25th anniversary of the 1994 West Lafayette F4 tornado.  It is a reminder that although more discrete supercells tend to be associated with a higher share of the violent tornadoes, that is not always the case.

This tornado passed through the northern and western portion of West Lafayette.  3 killed and dozens injured, but the outcome could very well have been even worse if it tracked farther south through the Purdue campus.

Following our dismal winter afterparty and a beautiful Chicago spring day, the bulk of next week looks to be a big pile of raw garbage for anyone who works outside

I found 33 mushrooms today. They are pretty small, but I had to pick them as they will be underwater in the next day or two as they were near a bank-full creek and the reservoir is in flood control mode so the water is backing up into the creek valley. Looks like we may get 2-3 more inches by Thursday so may see some significant flooding in the area.

Just came back from daughters graduation at IWU, couldn't believe all the flooded farm fields across northern IN.   Lots of rain coming in for that area too....:yikes:

Congrats to your daughter on her graduation. She is now a Wildcat alumnus. A least you won't have to visit the dump that is Marion, IN any more, although it is a very nice campus.

It seems that the flooding rain path is slowly moving north with time. It slammed Southern IN and KY for a few weeks, we've had our turn, and today areas just north of here (and including portions of LOT's CWA) are getting hammered. Area farmers are singing the blues.

Yep the forecast Sat. was rather gloomy keeping us on the cool side of the systems coming through with lots of rain.  As you said models have slowly shifted north and also increasing our temps especially at night.  If that pans out think the next 7 days could be good shrooming albeit wet!  Thinking about heading up to Missenewa and Salomonie Friday.

Have NWS radars in many locations been hacked or are having tech problems this Monday April 29?  Many are down with weird reasons why.  Anyone else having problems?

ILN is down but no reason as to why.

Odd that the 88 for IND is down but the radar message says that it is up for service. Must be a network issue. Maybe IndyMeso will look in and give us a heads up. Or maybe not.

I can access KIND on Radarscope

It is back up here now also. Whatever it was it was obviously a very temporary issue.

Sorry, I don't work for KIND. I did have troubles earlier accessing IND's radar, but didn't think anything of it.

We have just passed the 8th anniversary of a series of deadly tornado events. According to what I have read, 219 tornadoes occurred within the midnight-to-midnight time frame of April 27, 2011

Leaving for the big island of Hawaii on Saturday. Has anyone ever traveled there? Any recommendations? 


It’s the last island on my list, have been to all the others, even the little ones like Molokai and Lanai. Volcanoes national park and Muana Kea are on the top of my list for when I do go, but I thought I’d chime in more from a weather perspective - island climo fascinates me. The differences between windward and leeward, and the little micro climates. Maui claims to have every climate on earth represented, the other islands are pretty close as well.

Saving the big island for winter, going to bring my skis and try to ski Muana Kea.

Have to say most years the springs around here are just bad. It's been wetter than usual but the standard one nice sunny 65F day followed by mostly cloudy, rainy, 40s and low 50s is awful. The switch is coming though. About 3 weeks from now and click Memorial Day and temps jump from 40s,50s and a few 60s to 70s and 80s.

I plan to do the Manta Ray night snorkeling, we are renting a 4 * 4 Jeep to go up Muana Kea and stay there at night for the sunset and milky way observatory. I guess its one of the best places in the world to view it. We also are going to most of the big waterfall and rain forest hikes, and dedicating a day to Volcano national park. Debating on doing a helicopter tour as well, but its pricey.

Honestly that mid 60s day followed by rainy and 40s would be preferable to four days of 40s and rain followed by a sunny day in the 80s, rinse and repeat; been there before in May.

Haven't seen the sun or mid 50s even since Sunday.  It will be about time for a nice weekend weatherwise!

Yeah after a pretty nice week last week this whole week has just been blehh. At least the sun should be out for most of the weekend here and inland at least it might get near 70 on Saturday and Sunday.

Just came across this YouTube video of a tornado captured by a drone, taken yesterday. It is easily the coolest video I've watched in some time.

https://youtu.be/jD2cCJBDauA

Aww, cute widdle twister.

Looks like an EF-0, but given that it danced its way through prairie land, might be hard to survey and rate. I actually wouldn't mind hanging out with this tornado, it's just minding its own business and smiling for the camera.

Yeah I feel like we were paying for the previous week’s chamber of commerce weather.
