Update

January 12th, 2013 at 7:31 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

SPRING-LIKE WEATHER WITH HEAVY RAINFALL & A FEW T’STORMS………..

Damage from severe t’storms has occurred in Kentucky with report of brick church flattened, grain bin damaged & limbs & trees down near Paducah.  Funnel clouds reported southwest of Evansville & in the city of Evansville, Indiana.  Tornado Watch remains in Arkansas.

Here it is just heavy rainfall tonight (with a few embedded t’storms possible) with 1-1.75″ of additional rainfall atop wet ground.  This will lead to localized flooding & rises in creeks & streams.  Wabash will crest above flood stage Lafayette to Covington early next week.  NWS Flood Watch is in effect for Boone & Tipton counties.

SNOW, SLEET & FREEZING RAIN SUNDAY…………

The cold air is now rushing in with temperatures anywhere from 39 at Morocco to 55 at Frankfort as of 7:30 p.m.  Fowler has 42, but it is 50 at WLFI.

HIGHS TODAY:

63  Crawfordsville

62  Covington

62  Kokomo

62  Atlanta

60  Frankfort

60  Attica

60  Burlington

60  Fowler

60  WLFI-TV

59  Logansport

59  Rochester

59  Monticello

58  Rensselaer

58  Winamac

57  Morocco

Wintry mix still likely Sunday (ending by afternoon northwest & early overnight far southeast) with the best potential of higher icing/snow/sleet accumulations northwest of Lafayette, the way it appears right now.  There, up to 1.5″ of snow & sleet will be possible with 1″ or less elsewhere.  Ice accretions of 0.15″ are possible in our northwestern counties with 0.1″ elsewhere.  Sleet/freezing rain will take the edge off snowfall we would see if the whole lower atmosphere was uniformly below freezing & supported all snow.  Temperatures will fall all day Sunday.

Winds may gust to 35 mph Sunday morning, then 25-30 mph Sunday afternoon.

There will be banding features with the wintry precipitation, so within the viewing area there will be narrow bands that get more ice & snow than locations very nearby.  A good amount of variance in amounts is possible, especially if banding features become really develop well.
