This would make me pee my pants. I love storms. In fact, I have a tattoo on my left forearm that says "Let the sirens sound!" But THIS would scare the holy crapola out of me and I would probably soil my pants and legs. Watch what happens when some Australian storm chasers set up cameras during a lightning storm. Mother Nature provides them quite a show . . . from just a few feet away. YIKES!
Remember the old disco song "Knock On Wood?" Well, it was like "thunder and lightning" last night in parts of the tri-state as random severe thunderstorms blew in. They brought with them some very impressive lightning and some of my Facebook friends were outside with their phones and cameras aimed at the sky to capture some "electric" moments. And some of them did. Check this out!
It drives me crazy when I see cars in parking lots on hot summer days with dogs closed up inside them. I usually tell someone inside the place of business, usually a store, so that an announcement can be made.
The weather team at Eyewitness News is losing a familiar face. David Heckard, who started working for WEHT in Evansville in 2006, announced yesterday via Facebook page that he is taking the next step in his career. Wanna know where he's going?
The last two days I have received Special Weather Statements from AccuWeather and my Weather Channel app about cold air funnels. And that got me thinking and asking myself, "What the heck is that?" So, I did a little research and found some video of one. Check this out!
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for the entire tri-state until 10pm tonight. We've seen sun most of the day, but that has produced a lot of humidity and heat indices of right at or over 100 degrees.
The massive and deadly midwest storms of May have pushed storm chasers' profiles higher and higher. That doesn't necessarily make it the trendy thing to do. It's just that there's not much of a reason to see them as much when big storms aren't in the news.
While weather was relatively calm this afternoon in much of the tri-state, it certainly wasn't as predictable south of here. An EF-2 tornado touched down in Logan and Simpson Counties and it was caught, briefly, on camera. Check out the footage.
UPDATE Saturday 6:15 a.m. EST: The number of reported fatalities is at least five, with another 71 injuries caused by what authorities say are a total of 17 tornadoes ripping through the Midwest on Friday.
