Breaks in the clouds are pushing temperature to 53-60 in the viewing area as of 11 a.m. Winds are strong out of the south with gusts to 28 mph.
Widespread, significant rainfall fell overnight with a total of 0.98″ at WLFI since yesterday.
Today will be dry with clouds & some sun mixing in, windy conditions & highs of 58-64. These temperatures are near record-warm levels for the date.
After near 52 tonight, another round of rainfall will arrive later tomorrow with a few t’storms possible.
IN TERMS OF WINTRY WEATHER……….
There are two waves of wintry weather with ice & snow in the Corn Belt & Ohio Valley Sunday-Tuesday.
First one looks to be Missouri, Illinois & in our area early Sunday with accumulating ice & some snow.
Second is a band of ice & snow from Kentucky to perhaps southern Indiana Monday to Tuesday-ish.
So, there is wintry weather still on the horizon, but the details have been nightmarish to forecast due to issues with timing, amounts & precipitation type. Runs today favor earlier wintry precipitation potential & more ice than snow. We will continue to watch to see if Monday to Tuesday-ish system moves far enough to the northwest to affect us.
