A brief tornado occurred this evening 2 miles west-northwest of Kentland.  I have seen the video from a storm chaser & it appears the touchdown was brief.  It occurred right where the low-level rotation tightened near Kentland. 

Thanks to Brett at Live Storms Media was kind enough to let me share his footage on-air. 

Here is the touch-down:

Similar tight low-level rotation was seen on radar near Goodland, as well as Marshfield & West Lebanon (Warren County).

Recently a couple of storms have tried to tighten with low-level rotation in southeastern Warren & western Tippecanoe counties.

Risk continues for an isolated severe storm up to 5 a.m.

Showers/storms continue in the area.  They have been training over Warren County where up to 3" of rainfall has fallen just this evening.  1-2" has fallen from eastern White to western Clinton counties.

Rain tomorrow morning will give way to clearing in the afternoon with west winds 10-20 mph with humid highs near 83.

A few isolated to spotty showers/storms are possible at times Wednesday to Saturday with decrease in humidity.  After a heat-up to 87 Friday, highs will only run in the 70s Saturday to Monday.

Still looks to heat up to 85-90 with higher humidity briefly late next week with some storms along a cold front.

Cool spell with highs 69-73 & lows 43-47 look to occur after that.
