73 to 52 to 67 to 45 to 53 with Temps!

April 10th, 2013 at 9:33 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

We have warmed up quite a bit in the past hour with wind going north to east-southeast with warm front in area.  It has been a crazy day of temperatures at WLFI from 73 this morning to 52 to 67 to 45 & now 53!

We also had a 0.25-0.50″ hail storm this evening for about 2 minutes with rainfall total here at station at 1.00″ so far today.  Many areas have had over 2″.  Easily 1-2″ will get everyone with many seeing over that to as much as 3.5-4″.  I have had reports of water over roads on 26 east towards Kokomo & water over roads southwest of Flora & near Rossville.  Be careful!

Squall line is continuing to evolve to our west with our temperatures slowly rising again.  However, it still appears along & south of that warm front will have the best chance of scattered wind, isolated tornadoes & some hail.  North of it, appears it is mainly a hail threat.  We need to watch to see how far north the milder air & warm front get as the evening goes on.


New T’Storm Watch In Effect Until 3 a.m.

April 10th, 2013 at 8:29 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Scattered storms continue across the viewing area with a scattered hail threat, except for an isolated weak tornado threat & wind threat in our southern areas.  There is it warmer.

North of there it is cooler & hail is the threat.

Flash flooding is a threat area-wide.

Squall line is gelling/assembling to our west in western Illinois.  Line timing is still situated in that 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. time frame for the viewing area.

Up to 0.50″ Hail Possible Northeast Warren/Northwest/Northern Tippecanoe County

April 10th, 2013 at 7:11 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Storm looks to have some small hail in it northeast Warren/northwest Tippecanoe county.  Be aware of some localized flash flooding with this storm due to torrential rainfall with it.  It has wind with it, but that wind likely won’t make it to the ground as the unstable air with it is situated just above a more stable, cool layer near the surface.  The muggy, warm, juicy air is riding up & over warm front, producing the storm with 47 right now.  The storm is rooted above this chilly layer & is thus called “elevated”.

A gust to 35 mph may come from it in a place or two, but nothing really strong or severe.

Storm will pass from Green Hill to Otterbein, headed for Montmorenci & eventually Klondike & West Lafayette, Battle Ground & eventually Americus.


Update………….Storm Reports & Outlook for Evening-Overnight

April 10th, 2013 at 6:37 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

With front straddling area, thinking threat just north of it will be elevated hailers (hail potential with t’storms in the cooler air where the instability is layered above the cooler surface as warm, moist, unstable air is forced up & over front).

On & south of front, spotty wind, isolated weak, brief tornado & scattered hail threat will exist in the warmer air with more surface-based storms.

This would all occur with the scattered storms currently passing & the squall line that will pass overnight (forming to our southwest right now).

Everyone is looking at areas of heavy rainfall with easily 1-2″ over the ENTIRE viewing area & some places even seeing MORE than that by tomorrow.  Be aware of areas of flash flooding from heavy rainfall this evening & tonight.
