Storm Update

July 26th, 2014 at 8:30 pm by under Weather

Thunderstorms continue to move quickly to the east between 45 and 55mph.  They carry tons of lightning, heavy rain, gusty wind and small hail.  We don’t have any storm warnings at this time.  A t-storm watch continues for most of central Indiana until 2am.

 

WISH Weather Earth Design3

The lightning is till surrounding Indianapolis.  The steady rain continues for at least the next couple of hours downtown and in Speedway.

 

WISH Weather Earth Design

A line of storms is bowing in southwestern Indiana, which means we could have a few strong wind gusts.  We see tons of lightning and heavy rain with these storms on radar.
