Rain & T’StormsMay 9th, 2013 at 9:46 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Trees are reportedly down with a few reports of some structural eastern Illinois & near Terre Haute. A home was reportly damaged by near Riley, Indiana (Vigo County), according to the fire department there. Based on type of damage there at Riley, sure looks like an EF0 tornado & I figure that will be confirmed by NWS.
Here, we look fine, but there are storms approaching our far southeastern counties. Isolated severe threat will remain southeast of our viewing area through 12 a.m. from Indianapolis area down through Bloomington & Columbus, Indiana.
Otherwise, it is just rain with perhaps some thunder. As of 10:25 p.m., I have measured exactly 0.50″ of rainfall at WLFI.
Some showers & thunder are possible overnight, but they will end tomorrow.
Highs will reach 68 tomorrow, but lake breeze front will drop the temperatures after 2:30 p.m. in Lafayette & sooner than that north of Lafayette. Highs will only run near 61, then drop to the 50s in the northwest part of the viewing area.
Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with southwest winds at 10-15 mph early, turning westerly by noon, then northwesterly & northerly after 2 p.m. with gusts to 30 mph. This will add a bit of chill to the air by evening!
This………after highs near 80 for many of you today!
