Gust 45 mph Frankfort……44 mph Michigantown…….50 mph Covingon & Crawfordsville…….Widespread FloodingApril 18th, 2013 at 5:25 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
With squall line, gust of 45 mph measured at Frankfort & 44 mph Michigantown. Gust measured 50 mph near Covington & 50 mph Crawfordsville,
Torrential rainfall is falling with the squall line.
The morning storms were bad in that they caused damage, but the persistence of rain-cooled air & numerous rain/storms cut instability. So they were good in that way. Even with sun appearing southwest of our area, so much rain kept re-forming, we just could not warm it up to the 72 we had this morning.
If not for all of these storms, the squall line this evening would have been much worse.
Flooding is widespread.
