It's raining peas!?!?! Well, Pea size hail that is! ;)

Well, we seen rain showers along with a few reports of some thunder in areas up around Remington, We also see lots of high gusty winds all around the WLFI viewing area and even some hail! Now all this sounds like we had severe weather but that was not the case this time around! Yes, we did see all these things but severe weather was not around! Now how big was the hail? And how high did the winds really gust to?? Well, read on! :)

You can see the hail pictures above and tell that it was nothing big thank goodness..... We did not want any hail that would cause damage to cars and such like we once talked about here on the Indiana Weather Blog. We just seen nothing more then some little pea size hail. It was kinda cool to watch and also you can see it started to cover the ground a bit.. I seen it started hailing and I ran out to snap pictures! LOL When it comes to things like this I cannot pass them up. ;)

Also we seen the gusty winds yesterday that just started up that afternoon. So how high did they gust to?? Well Danville IL, seen a peak gust to 43 MPH..... Up around Remington areas they seen winds gusting to around 23 MPH... But down around Indianapolis there was gusts to 38 MPH... And last but not least Lafayette which seen a peak gust to around 38 MPH as well. WINDY all around that is for sure!!

And now we are in for a nice week it is looking like. Yes, we do have a little more rain to get through today but then we will be calling for some nice partly cloudy skies to mostly sunny skies.. With the best part being that highs will start to climb once again to the upper 70s to low 80s!!!!!!!!!! YES 80s! Now today we will see some off and on rain showers through out the day With rainfall being around .15" inches.. Winds will be much more calm between 15 and 20 mph. Now take a look at this Quick Cast Blog Cast I have put together for you below! This really says it all.....

Wednesday we will see some Partly cloudy skies or off and on sun. Highs will be in the upper 50s to low 60s. This will be the start of our nicer week and will give us some time to dry off a bit. Winds will be between 15 and 25 mph with a few possible gusts to 30 mph at times cannot be ruled out.

Thursday is looking like a really nice day with Partly cloudy skies to Mostly Sunny skies and highs getting into the upper 60s to low 70s. ANOTHER NICE DAY!

Friday we will be in the low 80s! Along with the sunny skies and lots of spring flowers popping up! Lows will still be in the upper 50s! It just don't get much better then that.

Extended Outlook. I think we will stay dry on Saturday with more Partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 70s and lows in the middle to low 50s. However Sunday we will see some more rain try to move into our area along with a thunderstorm possible. We will watch Sunday closely just to be safe as currently this system has the chance to become severe.. Now please remember it is still almost a week away so I will BE SURE to keep you all posted as it gets closer and as we all already know "As it changes" That's just Indiana weather for ya! ;)

Now go out and enjoy this week.....Well, after all he rain stops lol. Remember you can send in your weather pictures to me at storm18mini@aol.com and I will post! It is always helpful to see how the weather is in other areas.....

Have a GREAT day Fellow Bloggers!!!
