SEVERE WX : Freeze Warning View Alerts

May 14, 2:50 PM T'Storm Update

Here is the latest update regarding t'storms this evening-tonight.

Posted: May 14, 2020 2:44 PM
Updated: May 14, 2020 4:44 PM

Highs have reached 70-78 so far today & we are running 62-68 rain-cooled degrees right now.

Rainfall totals from a few showers & storms lastnight-early this morning & then again midday-early afternoon have added up to 0.15-2.20".  The heaviest rainfall totals have been in our northern counties.

By Monday (cutting these totals that we have already seen), grand totals should run 1.50-4.5".

We will warm back up again as the rain & line of t'storms departs for a bit & some sun appears.

Speaking of the t'storms, here are the measured t'storm gusts that exceeded 35 mph in the viewing area:

44 mph Kokomo Municipal Airport

41 mph 3 E Fowler

40 mph 5 NE Kokomo

39 mph 3 SE Covington

38 mph Purdue University Airport; 2 W Rochester

37 mph Kentland Muncipal Airport; Flora Municipal Airport

36 mph Frankfort Municipal Airport; I-65/IN 28 (Frankfort)

____________________________________________________________________________

The back edge of the rain will continue to work eastward & will exit this afternoon, followed by the sunshine & warming temperatures.  It will actually turn rather muggy with dew points surging to 70.

Winds will be strong from the south to south-southwest.

Outflow boundary will migrate northward into the destabilizing, muggy, warm air.

This, with increasing shear & wind fields aloft will lead to increasing severe weather risk this evening.

A couple/few severe gusts/hailers are possible.  Given low LCLs & subtle wind shift in the lowest 6,000' with outflow boundary, an isolated, brief, short-lived tornado is possible as these storms look more like clusters & individual t'storms, rather than a line.

They will move southwest to northeast over the viewing area.

Numerous t'storms should form to our west & northwest, gelling into a squall line.  This will pass overnight.

T'Storms on the outflow boundary moving southwest to northeast through viewing area this evening with the severe weather risk:

The squall line comes in tonight.  It will weaken as it makes it to our southeastern counties.

The rest of the afternoon looks nice & dry with a clearing trend.

Some scattered showers/t'storms are possible Friday morning to early afternoon, but any severe risk should stay south & southeast of our area tomorrow.
