The timing has changed as well as the rainfall amounts! We are now expected to see rainfall amounts anywhere between a tenth and a quarter of an inch. This is because our current humidity is now at 52% and falling so that means our air is getting dry which means some of the rain has evaporated. Still a lot of stations are still giving us a 60% to 80% chance and by the current looks of my maps it is looking that way still we will keep watch and if it changes again I will let you know.

Has this weather been great or has it been great! I don't know about you all but I'M ready for some fall like weather!!!!! By the looks of thing's it won't be much longer!
Not only that but the Feast starts tomorrow and it is looking great and dry for once the feast is dry WOW I know that don't happen to much LOL..... So when will the cooler weather start to push through? Well we have a cold front which will start to make it's way through our area by Monday! and that will cool us off a bit! As temp's will drop from the low 80s as they have been all week to the mid to low 70s! And not only that but how about our nightly lows? They will fall as well to around the mid to upper 40s how dose that sound? :) for all you cold weather lovers. So the Feast of the hunters moon, is looking good and our next chance for any rain is going to be when the cold front moves through on Monday late evening and as you know this could still change and by that I mean the timing! So I will keep you updated on that and what we could expect. As of now were are not expecting anything severe but you never know when it comes to Indiana! :-) We will be going to the Feast so I will try to post some pictures when I get back for all you! Everyone go and enjoy the Nice weather who knows next year it could be wet!!! but let's not worry about that this year! lol.....
Oh One more thing! Another old way to help tell how the winter forecast will be is squirrels!!
If you all remember last year the squirrels were all over the place and there were so many! running wild! and we had above normal snowfall! Well this year the squirrels are just as bad doing the same thing! So we will just have to see how thing's turn out not to forget the cold air is still building to our north!!!!!
All have a great day and Enjoy the Feast of the hunters moon.....

In this picture the rain was so heavy you can't see the tree's to well it almost look's like Fog!
Here really show's how heavy it was as you can see the rain pooring off the roof like a stream!
The wind's were really high and we had a lot of tree limb's in our yard still at as I type this the wind's are gusty. We got a total rainfall amount of .90 at this time here in Lafayette IN, It was coming down fast and the rain was totaling up fast as well..... It's not everyday we in Indiana see something like this and it sure was something! It looked like a hurricane out there sometime's. I went out to get these picture's and as im sure you know I got soaked!!!!! But it was fun as long as no one got hurt. We can all sleep well tonight!!!!! which Im sure you all are looking forward to.
Have a great day.....
The wind's will hold off till later this afternoon however there are a few weather watches and advisory to talk about. There is a flash flood warning out for Benton, Newton, and Jasper, countie. There is some wind advisory's out for Tippecanoe, clinton, boon, montgomery, fountain, and carroll, countie's. Still the wind gusts look to be between 35 and 45 mph. The heavy heavy rain's are staying up over in I'LL, and north IN, still we will have our heavy rain's just not like what they will have up north and west. I will keep you updated as needed.....

So stay tuned and stay safe.....

Ike is still currently a CAT 2 hurricane and as of now I think it will stay a CAT 2 when it make's landfall. The MAX wind's have been 110 mph to become a CAT 3 the wind's need to be at 111 mph so yes it is close but the MAX wind's have been at 110 mph all day and it is in the warm water's now and still is a CAT 2 so I think it will stay a CAT 2 hurricane when it make's landfall. Now for what we can expect for this weekend back here at home!. Let me tell you RAIN! The rainfall amount's still hold up at around 2 to 4" inches there is a chance we could see more in heavyer band's. Now other then flood watches we also need to watch out for high wind gusts. We could see wind gusts as high as 40mph maybe 45mph Saturday (tomorrow) later in the evening to that night! I have a feeling we all will be picking up tree limb's tomorrow! There is still a slight chance of some Sca-T storm's later that night into early early morning Sunday but as of now nothing is set in stone I will have more on this tomorrow. Yes we can still expect some low land flooding as well. So we have a wild weekend ahead of us and I will do my best to keep you all with the latest info.
And now Bless all who is in the path of Ike and let them all be safe.....
I will see you soon.....
The NWS has just put out a flood watch for Benton, Newton, jasper, Pualski, Cass, White, and Fulton, countie.
A flood watch mean's what it say's. It is possible for a flood so keep watch.
As of now we still can expect some high wind gusts on Saturday (Tomorrow) in the afternoon anywere from 25 to 30 Mph some could gusts as high as 35 Mph. The rain still hold's as well anywere from 2 to 4 Inches. Also for saturday (tomorrow) we will be in a slight risk for severe weather but we are not looking for any of that till late the day into sunday early morning so stay tuned.
I will keep you updated as needed and I will see you soon.
You can see it go's right through the Indiana area. And note it is still expected to be a tropical depression by the time it get's to the Lafayette Indiana area. This is something I have never seen before in my life!!!!! Still flooding is something we will need to watch the rainfall amount's still hold strong at 2 to 4 and maybe 5 inches in heavyer band's. Wind gusts will be something else we need to watch out for as tomorrow (Saturday) we could see wind gusts as high as 20 to 30 Mph maybe 35 Mph. So I will keep you all updated as new update's come in.
I will see you soon.
Thursday, September 11, 2008
The rain is on the way as soon as later tonight!!!!!
How much rain could we see when all is said and done? And will flooding be something we need to watch?
Well the rain is expected to start around 12:00am or 1:00am tonight so I hope you all got all your outdoor work done. :) Now could we be worried about flooding? well I would watch out for some low land flooding and most likely the wabash! I say this because we could see around an inch to two inches of rain on Friday (Tomorrow) and another two or more inches on Saturday add all this up and your talking around 4 inches and it is possible we could see more yet as this rain could go on through Sunday!!!!!. So stay tuned to the blog for more update's as they come in. Here is a big flood tip Don't drive into any standing water because you may not know just how deep it is and that can be very very dangerous! So be smart and be safe and you will be OK!.....
Try to stay DRY in this WET weather!!!!! I will see you soon. :)
The rain is expected to start around 12:00am or 1:00am Friday also for Friday we could have around a half to three quater's of an inch of rain and that is just for Friday we will be haveing rain possible through Monday. We will really need to watch out for flooding this is all because of what will be left of Hurricane Ike. Some good news is we are not in a severe weather risk for Friday at all as of now. So because of all the rain that is expected if you have any outside work to be done that you might want to get it done today before it all start's. Also for Friday we could see some wind gusts of 20 to 30 MPH. So as you can see it will be a very very wet few day's.
It will be a great few day's to set on the sofa and enjoy the sound of the rain let's just hope we don't get any bad flooding. I will keep watch and keep the blog updated.....
Have a great day.....

And one more thing take a look at Hurricane Ike you can see in this picture the darker color's red in TX is were it is expected to hit land. As of now it is expected to make landfall on TX, as a CAT 3 which is a major Hurricane.
Well I had better got moveing and get some stuff done so everyone have a great day and you can bet that I'll be back later to keep you all updated on what we can expect over this weekend. Have a great day and make it a good one :)

Thing's are nice and quite. You all can sleep well knowing that all the watches and or warning's are now over. It sure has been a wild night and now it look's like all we have to worrie about is going to be some chillie weather in the morning. So on your way to work school and even out for a jog don't forget to put on a jacket for it will be a chillie one out there. This is the time of year that the temp's go up and right back down it's just something we have to get use to lol :)
So everyone sleep well and don't let the bed bug's bite. :)
So far we have had one slightly strong cell move through our area in Lafayette IN, that is why I said I would not rule out a pop up strong storm or two for today. Now we still have to deal with rain for a bit and we will keep a close watch for anymore pop up's.
Now there is a severe thunderstorm watch out for fountain, montgomery, warren, and vermillion, countie till around 3am. I will keep you updated if needed.
We have more rain in the forecast for tonight and here is the low down.
The good news is we are not in a severe weather risk. As of right now look's like the main thing's to keep watch for is going to be rain. We could see rainfall amounts between a quater and a half of an inch possible. The rain look's to want to start around 10:00pm tonight however we could start to see some pop up scattered showers around 7:00pm this evening. Now even though we are not in a severe weather risk right now Im still not going to rule out a good thunderstorm pop up either. Thing's right now look to be on track and if anything chenges I will let you know so for now get out and enjoy your day. Tomorrow is looking nice and cool with a high only around 67*.
I will keep you updated if needed have a great day.

Ike is already a CAT 3 and is expected to become a CAT 4. This is a major hurricane and needs to be watched. As of now it can go more east like Hanna, it can go more west or it could go in to the gulf which like I have been saying all week we don't want that to happen. As Ike move's in I will do my best to keep you all updated but for now it is still a way's out there.
So again the week ahead is looking just great with cool temp's. I was checking out a few thing's and it look's like we will really start to feel the cooler temp's by around Oct 12th maybe before. So that give's all the cool weather lover's something to look forward to. That and a mild week ahead have a great day!
Thursday, September 4, 2008
We are in a slight risk for severe weather for today and the thunder cast has us in a slight chance of seeing any thunder so we may or may not get any bad storms. The good news is the risk of any super cell's is very low at this point and time. Still we will watch this because the system still has a counter clockwise movement and if there is enough windshear that would not be good.
Some more good news is there has been no reports with this system today and the only watches and or warning's is some flood warning's over in south ILL,.
We this morning woke up to a total rainfall of 1.00" inch. Yesterday we got .70" of an inch.
So for now enjoy your day and if you go out don't forget to take your umbrella.
I will keep you updated if needed.....

Now a quick hurricane update. Here are some picture's of hurricane IKE, now there are two other's out there as well but I am telling you all about Ike because it has a chance to go in to the gulf like Gustav did. We really don't want that to happen This hurricane is already a CAT 3 major Hurricane. If you take a look at this map just above you can tell that it look's like it could take the same path as hurricane Gustav did. So for now let's just cross our fingers and hope it dose not go to the gulf again.....
So everyone enjoy your night and don't forget the first day of fall start's on SEP 22nd.....
Well we could very well see some rain in the forecast tonight in to tomorrow and I have some rainfall total's that's right I said rainfall total's something we have not seen in a good time.
We have a 55% chance of rain tomorrow (Thursday) with rainfall amount's between a quater and a half of an inch possible!!!!! YES!!!!! Iam soooooooo happy to give you a rain forecast for we have not had rain in a long time at least in feel's like a long time!
Another thing to talk about is how hot it was yesterday we had a temp of around 94* WOW but on the better side we are now going to start to cool off as temps start to go back down to around the mid 70s. With all this talk about hot and dry weather would you all like to have a early winter forecast? Well stick around and I will have your winter outlook here on the blog later on today! Also it is getting close to the frist day of autumn which start's on the 22nd of this month. Halloween is also getting close I know I know you think Im rushing thing's lol.....
Also coming up I will give you a hurricane update there are more hurricane's out there and at least one of them named IKE, could make it back in to the gulf again which they really don't need so be sure to check back soon. Enjoy your day.....

I have been watching this storm for some time and I have just found out that the levee's in new orleans are very lose and could break here before long and that is something we don't want to happen as you know!
I have a friend down in Baton rouge LA, and said they were getting some heavy rain's and wind.
Storm surge is another thing to watch I was looking at some map's and new orleans could see storm surge anywere from 9 to 12 feet high!!!!!
So any family down there keep in touch with one another. I have been keeping it touch with my friend in Baton rouge by E-Mail. Stay safe. God bless everyone.
