Indiana ‘Stay At Home’ Day 3

Message from Bill and Kali: These are definitely trying times for us all. Many of us have never seen in our lifetimes something that has impacted the entire nation physically, emotionally and economically as COVID-19.

We want you all to be safe. Please exercise good judgement if you need to go out. Please keep unnecessary activities outside of your home to a minimum. If you have to go out, please exercise social distancing. Todate, social distancing is the only recommended practice to slow this virus’s spread and infection.

Please remain calm. It is proven that stress can lead to the weakening of your immune systems besides other negative mental and physical effects.

We will get through this together. Let’s support and care for each other. That is the way we have always done things in times of crisis.

Please continue to monitor reports from your local, state and federal authorities and follow their guidance. We have provided links below for you to gain access to the most uptodate information. Sadly and unfortunately the numbers of infections and deaths in each state is growing at a higher rate that we can track. If you wish to know the latest statistics and updated info, you can check one of the organizations below.

As always we have also provided the latest weather reports from the National Weather Service in this posting as well.

Please stay safe! We care about you!

Sincerely Bill and Kali

Showers and non severe thunderstorms are possible throughout Saturday morning. Any storms during this period will be capable of producing locally heavy rainfall which could lead to instances of flooding. During the mid afternoon through mid evening, additional storms could develop and become strong to severe with a threat for strong wind gusts and hail. A few brief tornadoes can’t be ruled out as well. Both the magnitude and northward extent of the severe threat remain uncertain, however, so be sure to check back for forecast updates.

In addition to the rain and thunderstorm chances, windy conditions are expected through much of the weekend. Southwesterly gusts as high as 40-50mph are possible Saturday evening through Sunday morning! Be sure to secure loose outdoor items.

Unsettled weather will prevail for the tail end of the week into the weekend. While there is uncertainty in specifics, we are confident enough in the general forecast theme for these three displayed periods. Periodic showers will develop Friday afternoon and persist through Saturday morning. Some of these could be strong well south of I-80. On Friday night these look to be the most persistent and potentially heavy south of I-80, where a localized flooding threat may develop. On Saturday afternoon showers and any storms will become more scattered. However, as temperatures warm into the 60s possibly even 70 south of I-80, some of the storms could be strong to severe. A cold front moving through the area Saturday evening will bring gusty southwest winds that will overspread the area and become westerly on Sunday. These will likely gust to 40 mph and may gust to 50 mph.

Chicago Live Radar


A very active pattern is ahead through this weekend as a deep low pressure area moves into the Upper Midwest. A warm front will move north Saturday and bring the potential for severe storms along with heavy rain and warm temperatures. Strong winds will follow Sunday.

Michiana Live Radar


After light rain tonight and a relatively dry day tomorrow, soaking rain will make a return Friday night into Saturday. Some embedded thunderstorms will also be possible Saturday afternoon and evening, but no severe weather is expected at this time. Rain totals through this weekend will range from 1 to 1.5 inches over much of southern Wisconsin.

Milwaukee Live Radar


An active weather pattern is expected for the end of the week and through the weekend. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected today and tonight, a few of which could be strong to severe. There is a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather for much of Central Indiana, along with an ENHANCED RISK for Severe Weather in Northwest Indiana on Saturday. Hail, heavy rain, lightning, and damaging winds will be the main threats today and Saturday. Sunday the storms will be out of the area, but strong winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph will develop. Stay Weather Aware this weekend!

  • Heavy rainfall and strong to severe thunderstorm threat expected to increase from the southern to central Plains northeastward through the Ohio ValleyHeavy rainfall and strong to severe thunderstorm threat emerges by Friday across the Southern/Central Plains and eastward through the Ohio Valley
  • Temperatures will be 15 to 25 degrees above average across large sections of the South
  • Fire weather threat remains at critical levels through Saturday across the southern/central High Plains and southern Rockies

A rapidly intensifying low pressure system is forecast to bring unsettled weather from across the central portion of the country to the Great Lakes and the Northeast as we head into the weekend. Another deep upper-level trough is currently spreading mountain snow showers and lower-elevation rain across the southwestern U.S. early this morning. As the upper-level trough moves eastward today, a low pressure system is forecast to intensify over the central High Plains. This will lead to a higher chance of snow to move into the central Rockies later today while rain and thunderstorms expand eastward through the central Plains and the Ohio Valley toward the Mid-Atlantic. As the storm intensifies further tonight, a period of heavy snow together with strong gusty winds could impact the central High Plains into the central Rockies early on Saturday before the low pressure system gradually moves away toward the upper Midwest Saturday night. An extended area of rain is expected to be focused along and to the north of a stationary front well to the east of the low pressure center. Heavy rain will likely lead to flooding concerns across the Ohio Valley through tonight.

As the storm intensifies and heads toward the upper Midwest, a wind-driven cold rain is expected to spread across the central Plains on Saturday. Some of the rain could change over to wet snow Saturday night across the upper Midwest before ending. South of the intensifying storm, showers and thunderstorms ahead of a strong cold front are expected to move quickly across the southern Plains through Saturday, reaching the Mississippi Valley on Sunday. Elsewhere, there will be a new upper-level trough impacting the Pacific Northwest going into the weekend which will bring some locally heavy rain for the coastal ranges and snowfall for the Cascades. In fact, portions of the Washington and Oregon Cascades may see as much as 1 to 2 feet of new snowfall going through Saturday.

Meanwhile, fire weather threat remains at critical levels through Saturday across the southern to central High Plains and southern Rockies as locally strong winds, very warm temperatures, and low relative humidities are expected across these areas in the wake of the intensifying storm. In fact, temperatures across the southern U.S. to the Mid-Atlantic will see well above average temperatures, with readings 15 to 25 degrees above normal. Many of these areas can expect high temperatures in the 80s to near 90 degrees ahead of the approaching cold front.
