Still breezy on Friday, but the Windy Advisory is trimmed back to just include Delaware County in central Indiana. Afternoon gusts will still be up to 40 mph elsewhere.
The Weather Service surveyed storm damage from Wednesday night in southeastern Decatur County, and confirmed an EF-0 tornado. Estimated peak winds were 84 mph. The path was 0.11 miles, and the maximum width was 25 feed. There was some damage, but no injuries.
Wednesday’s tornado was connected to a deep trough over the Midwest and a moist, buoyant warm sector. It lead to a line of strong storms over southern central Indiana. As a squall line organized and enveloped cells downstream, bowing segments lead to damaging winds and broad rotation. Straight line wind damage also occurred along the path of the bowing segment with significant damage noted along Lake Monroe where boat docks were damaged.
