Fulton/Cass warning is over after reports of nickel to quarter size hail in northern Cass County around Royal Center & southwest of Grass Creek.

I also received a reported of a path of crop damage & damage to cars & "the neighborhood" southeast of Bell Center, in northeastern White County.  This corresponds well with a tight low-level rotation signature this evening, along with a brief core of 60 mph winds noted.  Can anyone offer any additional information on this? 

Also, if anyone has any damage to report to crops, trees, any structures, etc. in an area of Clinton County outlined below, we'd love to hear about it!

Thank you all!  You have no idea how much your reports help!

Here is the peak of the rotation southeast of Bell Center with perhaps even a brief gust of 60 mph near the rotation area:

Jennifer Hughes caught these images of the storm as the low-level rotation was about to strengthen & tighten & gust of 60 mph became apparent.  Rotation was still very weak when these were captured, but you can see a ragged wall cloud structure developing in the middle of the first image as it was getting its act together prior to warning issuance.

These were taken looking from the Oakdale Dam area in Carroll County, looking toward White County.  She did mention it looked like it was strengthening with time as it moved northeastward.

Radar image when these were taken:

Jennifer's pics:

There is still a strong storm moving toward Warren County that bears watching.  Also some storms are popping in Newton & over Cass/Fulton.

Strong storms are also working north-northeastward toward Founton/Montgomery from the Terre Haute area.

I went potential of an isolated severe storm until 11 p.m.  Instability will continue to wane & better wind fields/shear depart to the southeast & east, which should put the kabosh on any potential pulsing to severe status.

Localized flash flooding risk will also continue as well.

Once this all departs, only a few spotty showers may be left for the bus stop in the morning, along with lots of clouds & temperatures of 65-70.

With some sun appearing, a scattering of showers & t'showers should bubble up & pivot through during the day.  Coverage should peak at 55% in the late afternoon.

Highs will run 76-80.  It will continue to be humid, but the humidity should drop nicely late tomorrow evening.
