1 P.M. UpdateJuly 23rd, 2014 at 1:10 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
New t’storms that formed in our southern areas are now exiting as of 1 p.m.
I measured just a trace of rainfall at the television station from this morning, but parts of the area received 1″. Some places around Indianapolis received 2″.
The only reports of wind damage came from Hoopeston, Illinois & northwest White County, where tree limbs were downed. The biggest limbs of up to half a foot in diameter occurred at Hoopeston. Hail up to 1.25″ diameter fell north of the area in Elkhart County, Indiana with 0.25″ around Indianapolis.
Now, skies will tend to clear with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s with brisk north winds. We will drop into the 50s tonight.
It will warm into the 80s for the weekend with highs humidity & a couple/several rounds of some showers & t’storms. Temperatures will cool back to the 70s for the first part of next week.
