With just 2 more days officially left of Summer 2014, we saw our final summer rain storm last night.
Central Indiana didn’t see much rain. The storm moved in quickly and left just as fast, although some thunder and lightning lingered for a while. As far as rain totals go, we stayed at barely over half an inch in central Indiana as the northern part of the state saw the biggest effects.
Official NWS rain totals for Saturday September 20, 2014:
0.18″ Terre Haute
Vigo county saw some small hail and several northern counties also saw very heavy winds, some up to 70mph:
So what does this mean for winter?
As the summer months come to an end, I can’t help but to think about last winter. With record-setting temperatures and snowfall that seemed to never end, I can’t believe we are just a couple of months away from starting another winter.
Last night, depending on where you are in the state, you saw anywhere from a small drizzle up to almost 2 inches of rain. Let’s say, just for illustration, you got 1″ of rain last night. In winter terms, 1″ of rain would equal 10″ of snow (on average).
Hopefully Fall weather sticks around for a while – I don’t think I’m quite ready for 10″ of snowfall again.
