Well tonight was interesting... I ran home for dinner pretty quick with NO rain in the area... and as I pulled back into the parking lot of the station a Tornado Warning was issued for Miami and Shelby County. I was on-air for the warning for about an hour and a half until 8:45 PM because the warning was extended. There was a tornado spotted by Miami County EMA first, then by storm spotters, then also by law enforcement. The spotted funnels and possible tornadoes were very weak and a few reports were spinning up a little debris. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see what the National Weather Service has to say. Mad props to Malcom Maddox for helping with the cut-in and also Jeff Booth, who got ready came in on his anniversary...not to mention the production crew, producers, reporters, and photogs behind the scene, great work guys.
The next couple of days still look like persistent showers. They will be on and off, but a rather wet, cold, dreary day. Temps will barely get into the 60's tomorrow and only the mid and upper 50's for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday...which is when we will finally start drying out. Temps will warm up for the end of the week with partly cloudy skies. Have a good one!
