(WTHI) - Good Monday morning! We started off this morning with torrential downpours across portions of southern Tippecanoe and Central Clinton Counties.

We have had some reports of rainfall accumulations up to 2 inches in southern Tippecanoe Co.

Rainfall reports from 2:00 AM this morning to 5:00 AM. Colors represent radar indicated data.

Monday Forecast

As of 8:00 this morning, things have quieted down. Blue skies are returning to the region. The outflow from this morning’s storms is now located in Central Indiana just north of Indianapolis. This will be the focal point for more storms later this morning and afternoon.


As the Precision 18 Weather Team has stated all week last week, the long-awaited cold front is beginning to slow down and stall out across our region. It has ultimately turned into a stationary front due to now Tropical Storm Ida making its push northward.

8:00 AM Monday morning Satellite and Radar imagery show the stationary front in our northern counties. 
Since this stationary front will slowly make its way southward, storms will fire along this boundary this afternoon as well as Tuesday.

Precisioncast showing storms firing along the stationary front later this evening after 5:00 PM. 

Tuesday morning we could be dealing with a few showers and storms in our southern counties. 

By late in the day Tuesday and into Wednesday, the front will finally push southward and steer the remnants of Ida to the northeast away from us. Wednesday will be clear with near to possibly below average high temperatures (upper 70s to lower 80s)

Hazards Monday and Tuesday

Very heavy rain, minor areas of flooding, lightning, and damaging winds are all potential hazards for Monday and Tuesday.
Most of the storms will fire south of Fowler to Monticello and to Logansport which is where the stationary front will be located today. These storms will travel slowly to the east southeast today and flooding could become a hazard with some of these storms.

Although the Storm Prediction Center has us under a "General Thunderstorm" category, we could still see strong storms at times Monday and Tuesday.

Work Week Forecast
Once the front leaves the region, upper level and surface high pressure will work in and give us pleasant and comfortable weather Wednesday – Friday with sunshine and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s which is near normal this time of year.

For the upcoming holiday weekend, some computer models show a boundary moving in for Saturday and Sunday which could give us afternoon and evening storms as temperatures warm back up in the mid 80s and dew points in the mid 60s. Stay tuned with the Precision 18 Weather Team for the latest details and updates.
