Things Working Out As Expected! Thank God!

Hey bloggers. Well the good news is everything turned out okay! We had not one but two storms try to effect the area. But the good news is the second one lost it's power as it moved into our more stable air as expected. Take a look at this radar image below. This was taken at 9:20pm EDT. You can see the first storm that went through the area. This is the one that really effected the Warren, Fountain, Tippecanoe, Montgomery, and Clinton, county areas. Pretty much anyone north of Lafayette, was only seeing some showers and light thundershowers. Now we did have some Doppler indicated pea sized hail showing up in areas of Tippecanoe, Fountain, Montgomery, and Clinton, county however we have not had any real reports! But we did see many high wind reports around the area. I seen a lot of bowing with this first storm and all these reports confirm it!! Take a look at this below.



60 MPH Wind Recorded

Just crazy... That's the only word that comes to mind. The good thing about this first round of storms that went through our area is they quickly made things more stable. We had lifted index (LI) back up to +1.2 after these storms went through. This is pretty good. Any LI from -3 and lower is when things really can get ugly storm-wise. This is why I was thinking that even though there was severe thunderstorm watches out in IL, with the second round of storms I still figured they would weaken as they moved closer to our more stable air. Which thank goodness it worked out that way! ;)

Now it seems we have had rain chances just about everyday this week?!?! Is that going to continue to start the work week?? Well, I hate to break it to everyone but I gotta keep scattered rain / thundershower chances in the forecast for the first few days of the work week. Take a look at your two day forecast I put together below.Sure we're finally getting the pool like temperatures in the near 90 range however the rain chances just keep coming along with it. Well, this time we can thank a low pressure system that is taking it's sweet old time moving across the area. Yes, because of this low I cannot keep out the rain / thundershower chances. Now the good thing is I'm not going to call for an all day total wash out! I think we will see breaks. But still keep the umbrella handy! ;) This is going to be the story for the next couple days at least!

I'm also looking at the temperatures for the week ahead and if you like the hot summer weather then you'll like these temperatures! I have them ranging between the upper 80s and the low 90s!!!! Now all we need is a little more sun and we can hit the pools! :)

Have a great day bloggers. I will be back here if any weather breaks loose! ;)

God Bless.

Well, I'm currently not expecting severe weather but as you know in Indiana if there's a chance for storms then we always have that slight chance for it to become severe. So if things get nasty then you know I'll do my best to be here! ;)

I won't be on Facebook for a while at least. For some unknown reason they have disabeld my account and now I have no way of getting on. I sent an email to facebook so I should hear something in the next 2 to 3 days. If not then I'm gonna have to use my other email and try to set up another account. Otherwise I'm just gonna have to go back to Twitter... Ugh.. Many others have had this same problem and have no idea why??

Anyway, you all know where to find me. Here and Twitter for now! lol :) Twitter name is "Justin_19"
