Some Scattered Showers/Few T’Storms SundayJune 29th, 2013 at 10:52 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
5:25 P.M.: Some scattered showers/storms continue to bubbling up & pass through moving west & southwest from east & northeast. This is due to upper low spinning in southwest Indiana.

Temperatures vary from 71 to 79 with 75.8 at WLFI, 77 at Covington, 79 at Rochester, 77 Winamac, but a rain-cooled 71 at Atlanta & a rain-cooled 73 (from 77) at Rensselaer.
12:45 P.M.: Sun is out here at the house in West Lafayette & any sun today will just bubble up more scattered showers & a few storms. It is now 69.3 at WLFI, 68 at Rochester, Covington, Morocco & Kokomo. Frankfort & Thorntown have 71. Fowler sits at 67 with Winamac at 69.
When thunder roars go indoors. 3 children were struck by lightning yesterday at a summer day camp in Indianapolis with on still in critical condition.
JUNE 29, 10:52 P.M.: Hadley is tuckered out after her party today, so I am able to look over weather data before bed. After some rain, it turned out to be a really nice evening with sunshine & nice 70s for her party, before a t’storm late this evening with skies going rapidly dark. Thank you all for you kind birthday wishes for a true light in my life: my daughter.
The more-substantial rainfall was hit-or-miss & highly-variable today. Much of the viewing area received at least a some, but localized areas received 1″ or a bit more.
