Thunderstorms With Lightning & Heavy Downpours on the Way

Forget the packing of the suit case. I will just get on the plane tomorrow morning with my family. That is all that really matters, doesn't it. Speaking of keeping everybody's family safe, there is a line of thunderstorms in Illinois that I have been tracking. It will not warrant a weather watch for us here in Indiana but it should still have plenty of lightning, heavy downpours, and wind gusts near 40 mph by time it arrives in our viewing area after 10 p.m.

Severe weather reports in Illinois have been very sporadic and this line has gone from producing near 10,000 bolts of lightning per hour down to about 6,000 bolts per hour as of 8:41 p.m. It will continue to weaken as it moves into a more stable air mass here at home, but it should be quite a dazzling light display and some areas could still pick up a quick one to two inches of rain. I will keep you updated.

Ahhhh..there is our Mike with a wx update! Teri and I have been tracking these storms for quite some time. She, more than me, but for the past couple hours I have watched that bow echo move ever so quickly towards us. I do see weakening in that line now, thankfully. I have seen reports in IL of winds to 52 and 68 mph with damage. we do NOT need that! Let Julie pack for ya, Mike and keep us updated, LOL!

I thought about stopping at the State Police post in Lowell to see what conditions were like, but...if I had stopped I would have been caught once again in that storm. So, I kept driving south and got ahead of it.

Now I wait to see if storms will fire toward dawn here. Some sites are saying so. ugh....

Looks like the tornado warning has been canceled for out west but it looks like that same hot spot is heading right our way.

What a rough night! I remember dozing off around 12:30am and finally caught a glimps of Brian talking about the tornado warning in Benton county.

Hang tight everyone because there are to be some rewarding and cooler temps after this mess passes us all today.

When's Mike coming back? The Weather Channel is so concerned about whats going on with the current Hurricane that they hardly even mention anything about us Hoosiers. :)

I'm keeping my eyes glued to the radar and here.

Fountain co , could see high winds and heavy downpoors,

Mike is coming back around the 10th.

i HATE stormy nights...hard on my habit of sleeping :-) I had a total, in two hour increments, four hours sleep. Between thunder and WX radio going off I was like a bouncing ball around here. Thankfully we dodged last night's derecho. The storms that rolled in here about 6:30 a.m. have left 1.68 inches rain and LOTS of lightning & thunder. We were under a storm warning which has now expired. I saw rain totals approaching 6 inches around Crown Point area. WE do NOT need that!

Stay tuned to wx today, we could get round two (or is that #25??) anytime today. I just keep thinking about that cooler, and drier air promised!

So funny MA!! My children actually all slept through the storms last night and this morning, but I was up too! So far here in East Tippe we have had 2.52 inches of rain in past 24 hours.

Ok Im up Im up. I have 1.40 in the gage and my sweet corn is on the ground as well as everything else in the garden. Grrr.. Tree limbs down all the way to rensselaer. Water in the fields, road ditches and on the road so be safe. The winds are still strong. The winds pushed my flag pole over almost to the ground and its 3ft in the ground with concrete at the bottom. The courthouse looks like a castle with a mote around it. Everyone seems safe though. I heard BC had a touchdown with damage?? A house and some barns pretty messed up. william in remington.

Things are looking good at this point. I just went out to check the rain gauge and we got 2 inches here by the fairgrounds.
