Outlook to Next Weekend & Beyond

June 8th, 2014 at 3:29 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

A complex of rain & storms passed through last night & this morning.  This complex actually brought several tornadoes to Missouri, funnel clouds to central Illinois & severe weather over several other states.

We received the leftovers from it, but the meso-low associated with the complex was tight & strong.  This, combined with surface high pressure sliding in from the west & strong gradient winds occurred near the low center (gusts measured to 45 mph).

With rain still falling & trees weighted down by the rain (& several hours of strong sustained winds & gusts), some limbs & whole trees came down, but only near the center of the surface low.  Several limbs & a few trees fell in parts of Benton to Fountain & Tippecanoe counties.


A good chunk of the viewing area received 1-2″ of rainfall.



It will be dry this evening, but high cirrus & mid altostratus will dim sun as the cloud blow off the tops of a weakening complex of storms to our southwest.


Monday looks dry with highs near 80, but showers & t’storms are possible Tuesday-Wednesday with highs in the 70s to around 80.  Thursday looks dry with lower 80s.

A few showers & t’storms are possible Friday with highs in the 80s as a warm front passes.  Hotter, more humid weather will arrive next weekend & especially next week.

Looks like more of a “Ring of Fire” pattern here with couple/few complexes of storms that may move by.  This pattern shift would bring 90s & severe weather threat to our area.

  5. Hey weather buds and my new friend Sherry in Wolcott ;) what a gorgeous day for the graduation and the parties afterward! My friends and I attended 5 of them today after 3 yesterday. SO glad to be home but I’m betting the parents are happier than I am for this to be over :-)

    There is a lot of standing water in the country. The ditches are full, some across the roads even. I’m thinking we got over 2 inches in this area. And it came fast and hard. I’ll really be glad when the wx station is up and running again!

    MA in REM

  6. I forgot to mention that Carpenter Creek is almost bank full and that happens when Benton Co gets big rains. Sure wish we had ppl reporting totals on here from Benton Co area.
