Highly-Variable Rainfall From Overnight-Morning Broken Line of Storms

July 20th, 2013 at 4:22 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

I received only one report of storm damage with a tree falling & taking out power lines in Attica.  This resulted in a power outage in Attica.

Otherwise, it was typical run-of-the-mill summer t’storms with highly-variable rainfall from a trace to 1″ over a small area.  Cliff had 0.60″ in Rossville, Chuck 4.5 miles northeast of Frankfort 0.52″, Randy in Frankfort 0.55″, Ken in Mulberry 0.12″, Teri in Lafaytte 0.20″, Purdue University Airport 0.10″, 0.28″ at WLFI in West Lafayette, Bud 0.06″ on the southside of Lafayette, Mary Anne in Remington received just 0.04″.


Temperatures are currently warmer in our northern than southern counties due to more sun there.  However, the humidity is much lower in our northern counties.  This lower humidity is gradually moving southeastward & will overspread the viewing area with time this evening-tonight.

  1. And now there is a small area of severe storms just SW of Chicago headed SE. Wondering if that will hold together or die out. WAs outside around 9:00 p.m. tonight and the humidity has gone down, but not a lot. Tis the season I guess :-) Grass is getting brown, flowers are dying from the recent heat.
