Some Rain/Snow/Sleet Showers………Windy with Peak Gusts So Far to 49 mph In Northeast……40 mph WLFI-TV

October 30th, 2012 at 1:50 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Winds have gusted as high as 49 mph in the viewing area today.  The highest wind gusts have been in our eastern counties.  Just outside of our viewing area, noticed 50 mph wind gust measured at the Starke County Airport.

Peru has gusted to 47 mph, Kokomo 46 mph, while the Howard County Airport recorded at gust of 45 mph.  Bunker Hill (Grissom ARB) has gusted to 44 mph.

Some rain, snow & sleet showers are pivoting in from the east around Superstorm Sandy.  Don’t be surprised to see some flakes/sleet today & tonight.  Today, the flakes/sleet with the rain will be caused by evaporative cooling through all of this dry air.  Tonight, colder temperatures at surface & upstairs will make for this with lows around 34.

    Very light cold rain since 2:45 PM. Enough to wet everything. Winds here have slowed down with less gusts.
    NE of Frankfort.
