Episode Narrative A pre-frontal trough developed across southern Indiana during the early afternoon on July 8th as a cold front moved south across northern Indiana. Scattered strong thunderstorms developed across southern Indiana, then propagating southeastward over portions of north central Kentucky and the Bluegrass Region. Coverage of these thunderstorms were spotty. However, aided by extreme instability and very light winds aloft, some of these slow moving storms produced localized very heavy rain and wind damage.
Event Narrative Local police reported some streets flooded across downtown Carlisle. A rain gauge 4 miles southwest of Carlisle measured 2.6 inches in 40 minutes.
