What a wild day of Watches Warnings and Advisories! And high temperatures set a new record.

Well we had a wild day yesterday!!!!! We had So many watches and warnings out it was not even funny! We seen Tornado watches and warnings. We had severe thunderstorm watches and warnings. We had Wind advisories. And we still have Flood watches and warnings out!! We even see high winds rool into the Indiana after midnight! It really was a mess! As the storms started to roll through we seen some rotation in the system! And strong winds! You can see on the radar image I have posted below! But the good news is there have not been any tornado reports here in Indiana! So even though there was Doppler indicated rotation nothing touched the ground! Thank goodness!You can see as that system started to move through we seen those Tornado warnings come out! Along with the severe thunderstorm warnings! The rotation stayed with that line for some time! Up till it got around Kokomo, It was a strong cell! But the good news is everybody stayed safe! There was a lot of reports as well in Indiana! However they where only High wind reports! Which is better then tornado! Wind can do a lot of damage and it did! Here is a few reports from right here in Indiana! And this is not all the reports! Here is a few more from Indiana!

NAPPANEE ELKHART IN,

POLE BARN BLOWN OFF ITS FOUNDATION. TREES DOWN IN SOUTHWEST PART OF NAPPANEE.

PRINCETON GIBSON IN,

SEMI TRACTOR-TRAILER BLOWN OVER ALONG HIGHWAY 41 NEAR THE TOYOTA PLANT. NO INJURIES REPORTED.

You see the wind did a lot of damage around the area! We where lucky that this was all it was! Here is a few reports from IL, and MO, where they had a few Tornado's Touch down!

THOMPSON AUDRAIN MO,

Looking at these tornado reports this really tells you how lucky we are that we just had wind damage and nothing Else! We will still have to watch the creeks and rivers as we finish out with our rainfall totals just to be safe!! However I have heard the creeks are not flooding at this time which is GREAT news! Here are a few final rainfall totals!I do have some good news!!!!! What is it????? Well we have a nice rest of the weekend and a few Partly cloudy days to dry out! This is good news it will give the ground some time to soak up all this puddling rain water! And we will start to get back down to normal temperatures for this time of year by later this week! We did however break a Record which was set on the 27 back in 1971 of a high in December of 63 Degrees! We had a high of 67* degrees yesterday! And a NEW RECORD HAS BEEN SET!

So on that better note of a better looking week I will see you soon! Have a great weekend!!!!! And thank you for reading!
