*****Update as of 4:46PM*****

Hey their!! You can see above Teri, just sent this picture in of some Towering / Swelling Cumulus clouds. Yes, we can say this is a sign of rain and things to come. Now after looking at the latest again it is looking like the rain will start sometime after 7:pm this evening. And then the better chance for some scattered thunderstorms with Isolated severe closer to 10:pm to 11:pm tonight into early Friday morning. We have seen a little Daytime heating however I still have our tornado threat low around 2% which is good news. Now the main severe weather outbreak will be well to our south and west down around Missouri, and Kansas, areas. This is where they have more unstable air, Higher CAPE values and more Wind Shear to work with.. Still we are not out of the woods just yet as we still have the chance to see some scattered thunderstorms and the (possibility) of some Isolated severe in areas cannot be ruled out. Currently it is looking like most of the severe would be just to our south in Central parts of Indiana. Still we will watch things closely and keep taking it hour by hour..........You can see above we are starting to see some thunderstorms pop up to our west and this is some of what will try to head our way later on this evening. As the day continues we will see more pop ups on the radar so we will be watching closely just to be safe!..... I will have another update as needed later on this evening to tonight. And all BLOGGERS be here and we will track this system together! ;) And last but not least I look for rainfall amounts to be between a Quarter and a Half Inch when all is said and done..... I will check back soon..........
