Friday night football forecast 10/20

What a night of weather it will be for this week’s Friday night football games! With high temperatures nearing 80° earlier in the afternoon, there will still be a good deal of warmth around at varsity kickoff times. Temperatures as the games start will be in the upper 60s, falling into the upper 50s around the 4th quarter  So, don’t let the warmth of the day fool you — you will need a jacket or sweater in the stands, especially after sunset. Conditions are expected to remain dry with only a light southwesterly wind.

Anniversary of Nappanee tornado

On this date 10 years ago, an EF-3 tornado hit Nappanee.  The tornado first developed NW of Bourbon and traveled NE, wavering between an EF-1 to EF-2 strength as it neared Nappanee.  It continued farther NE and weakened, eventually lifting before reaching the area near New Paris.

Wednesday rain update

The overall timing of Wednesday’s rain remains pretty much the same as we’ve been pinpointing over recent days.  The majority of the incoming rain will fall overnight Tuesday/early morning Wednesday, tapering off after noon on Wednesday.

Tracking Nate – Monday night update

The remnants of Nate moved through the Northeast today and now are exiting the country.  Still producing some pockets of heavy rain, Nate’s leftovers are moving into Canada and the storm is no longer the major wind or flood threat it once was as a tropical storm or hurricane.
