Rainfall totaled 0.36-1.19" per all mesonet & NWS gauges observed in the viewing area.

Highs overnight reached 55-61.

Severe weather reports yesterday-lastnight to today (so far up to 1 pm today):

Much of Ohio is under a Severe T'Storm Warning right now.  This the largest real estate under Severe T'Storm Warning at once I have seen since the August derecho.

Like the March 24-25, 1996 event we analogged, this line is narrow & low-topped & doesn't look overly-impressive froma  radar standpoint, but it has been producing +70 mph gusts.  It produced county-wide tree damage in Huntington County, Indiana & gust of 64 mph near Rochester in our area.

Peak measured gusts either from this final squall line or gradient wind behind the line/cold front:

64 mph 1 N Athens

57 mph 2 W Rochester

55 mph Remington, Logansport-Cass County Airport, 3 E Fowler, Kentland

54 mph Kentland Municipal Airport, 3 NE Greentown

53 mph Purdue University Airport

52 mph Grissom ARB, WLFI Ob Site

51 mph Kokomo Municipal Airport

50 mph Frankfort Municipal Airport, I-65/28 (Frankfort)

48 mph Flora Municipal Airport, Darlington

47 mph 3 NE Rensselaer

46 mph Monticello-White County Airport, Waynetown, 2 NW Crawfordsville, 2 S Montmorenci, 5 W Delphi

45 mph 5 NE Monon, 6 SE Covington

44 mph Morocco, Winamac, Peru Municipal Airport

43 mph Rensselaer-Jasper County Airport, 2 N Rensselaer

39 mph 1 S New Market

__________________________________________________________________________________

Gusts of 35-50 (isolated +50 mph) mph will still occur this afternoon with gusts lingering into the night of 20-30 mph.

After the dry slot, low cloud deck rolled in, but these should break late this afternoon-evening for some sunshine with sprinkles/spotty showers ending.

Temperatures will be in the 40s.

Lows tonight should drop to 31-35 with clearing skies & wind chills in the 20s.

Some increasing clouds Monday & southwest winds will lead to highs of 51-57, followed by lows of 31-36 Monday night.

Behind dry cold front, Tuesday looks partly cloudy & colder with windy conditions from the northwest & highs 43-50 & 24-28 Tuesday night as winds go light to calm.

50s return Wednesday, followed by 60s Thursday with sunshine & strong southwest winds.

Highs of 66-70 are likely Friday & 68-72 Saturday with strong southwest winds to 40 mph.

Line of storms with isolated severe weather risk is possible next Sunday, followed by another line of storms with some severe weather risk the followed Wednesday or Thursday.

Temperatures will be WARM at times with 60s to 70s.

It will turn colder to the 40s & 50s briefly behind each system, but at this point, I do not see any really cold, truly winter air with any snow to at least December 5.  Some brief bouts frost & hard freezing will occur, but key word is BRIEF.

Windy to very windy weather, very warm streaks & some severe weather risk episodes will be the norm up to that point.
