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.
