Well, the streak was finally broken!  We had not had a single drop of rainfall at WLFI since June 24 until a few drops fell this evening.  June 26, 27, 28, 29 saw not a single drop, though the airport had a trace of rainfall just after midnight on June 26 & during the early morning hours of June 27.

So, our consecutive 5 days of dry weather beat December 16-19 & is the longest stretch since the 5-day stretch October 21-25.  September 10-17 saw an 8-day dry stretch & there was another 8-day stretch August 30-September 6, 2018.

It was the hottest day of 2019 (so far) for the viewing area as a whole with highs 90-94.  A couple well-sited personal stations that I check just briefly hit 95.

Heat indices ran well into the 90s to as high as 107.

Much of the rain & storm action was confined to the western half of the viewing area today.  Up to 2.6" of rianfall fell in southern Warren & western Fountain counties.

Messy mass of storms with MCV & outflow boundaries occurred with several wet downbursts in the area & a surge of wind without rain resulted in some wind damage in western Tippecanoe & over Montgomery counties.

The storms did for a bit of a cold pool line with time, then collapsed just south of the Ohio River, but not before producing much wind damage.

MCV from those storms & the collapsing complex of storms in central Illinois..........along with outflow boundaries...........will serve as foci for some storm development tomorrow.  This will occur as we heat up once again & dew points rise into the 70s.  They have the potential to reach the upper 70s in our southwestern & western counties.

Triggers will ignite scattered storms are any point tomorrow, even with capping trying to take over.

Isolated severe weather is possible with pulsey storms. 

Threat are wet downbursts & some hail, along with some locally-heavy rainfall.

Highs will run 89-94 with heat indices 97-108.

Intense capping & upper ridging will be around Tuesday, but a few isolated storms may pop through given some triggers (outflow boundaries & MCV from storm complexes to our north & northeast).

An isolated severe storm or two is possible.

It looks hot & muggy with highs 90-95 with heat indices 100-111.

Storms that fire just ahead of the weak cold front will fade Tuesday night, but the outflow boundary of those storms will serve as a focus for storm development Wednesday.

Hot & oppressive weather will continue Wednesday.

With weak cold front stalled over or near the area, off & on storms (with isolated severe risk at times with locally-heavy rainfall) will continue until next Sunday.

Very warm to hot & humid weather will continue up to that time.
