7:05 P.M. UPDATE:
Jim reported gust of 52 mph at Kentland with pea-sized hail & torrential rainfall with thunder & lightning.
Wind gusted to 31 mph at Monticello with t’storm.
Back edge of the rain is near I-57.
Watch for our area will likely be cancelled soon as t’storms weaken with time & rain gradually pull away.
Watch for areas of flash flooding in areas that receive the torrential downpours this evening & got the heavy rainfall lastnight & this morning.
After everything exits tonight, there will be a lull, but a few more storms (perhaps evolving into a small cluster) are possible very late tonight-early Tuesday as warm front lifts through our northern half of the viewing area. Isolated severe threat will exist with those.
6:48 P.M. UPDATE:
Strong wind core approaching Kentland & Chalmers areas:
Scattered storms continue to pass through with the most-organized storms running from northern Tippecanoe to Benton counties & then in Fountain County.
The line running from Earl Park to Brookston may have an isolated gust or two to 50 mph.
