WEATHER ACROSS THE TRI-STATE: More on the way

Posted by on Sunday, April 16th, 2017 @ 4:54 pm.

Radar at 4:45 p.m. Sunday, April 16, 2017

We've been experiencing some lightning (Harrisburg), some hail in some locales (Allendale over in Wabash County), and plenty of cloud cover and some torrential downpours, but we're going to be getting more storms in the tri-state (Illinois/Indiana/Kentucky) this week, so we figured it was wise to make a weather post, in case you, like us, don't watch TV and rarely see local forecasts on The Weather Channel feeds.

Here it is from the National Weather Service:

...Local wind gusts 35 to 45 mph expected thunderstorms this
afternoon...

As thunderstorms continue to increase in coverage during the peak
heating of the day...some of the thunderstorms will produce wind
gusts between 35 and 45 mph as they dissipate and rebuild with
time.

Some thunderstorms may gather together into short lines. These
groups of thunderstorms may produce higher wind gusts, ranging
from 45 to 55 mph at times.

The stronger winds will cause some tree limbs to break and toss
around loose outdoor objects. Weakened trees may topple and brief
power interruptions may occur where tree limbs hit power lines.

In addition to the stronger wind gusts, rainfall amounts between
three quarters of an inch to one and a half inches will be
possible where multiple thunderstorms develop and move across the
same location.

Frequent and dangerous lightning and small hail will also be
possible, so be sure to seek shelter indoors away from the storms.

The vast majority of the thunderstorms should continue to move
east, northeast around 30 mph this afternoon.

The coverage and intensity of the thunderstorms will gradually
decrease toward sunset.

Yall remember what happened six years ago this week? That massive amount of rain that hit the area, which resulted in devastating flooding...? It doesn't appear that that's going to be the case this time...but
