This is how things have looked here in Indiana pretty much all day. gloomy and rainy. Wet and muggy. And this will continue to be the story into the evening hours. More rain is on the way along with a few more thundershowers likely. We have a cold front that is still trying to make it's way into the state this evening / overnight bringing another line of rain and thunder along with it. Take a look below.
You can see the rain just to our west in IL, making it's way into Indiana as I type. That cold front is just behind that line and moving pretty quickly to our area. I have been going through the current data and I'm not seeing anything that is pointing to severe storms as this makes its way through our area. TT index is around 28 which is super low! EHI is at 0.0 which is good. SI is around 1.8 which is supporting rain and light thunder. and our LI is rather stable. With that said the National weather Service does still have a tornado watch in effect for much of the area until 9pm EDT tonight. I however don't think tornadoes are going to be a threat tonight at this time. Tornado threat is currently around 2% to 5% percent. main threats with this line of rain / thundershowers will be heavy rain at times, Gusty winds as that front starts to push through, some winds between 30 and 45mph in storms likely. And frequent lightning. Overall nothing to strong this time around.
Here is a look at my local radar image taken at 6:pm EDT.
Once this cold front passes through we will see a low tonight of 55* degrees, Highs will be cooler as we finish off the week. Highs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the upper 60s around 68* degrees. Lows will be in the upper 40s! Autumn is upon us bloggers.
Take care and I'll check back again soon!
