Update for Now-TomorrowFebruary 7th, 2013 at 2:24 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Rain is just sitting near I-57 & barely making progress eastward. Winds at 10,000′ are becoming paralell to low-level winds, so most of the rain is moving north/northeast, while very slowly advancing east.
This said, skies have been slow to turn cloudy & our temperatures have responded very nicely with dry, down-sloping component to the southeast wind today. In fact, our high at WLFI, just hit 51.1 degrees! This, after 29, then slowly rising this morning to 31.
Showers will eventually arrive by late afternoon-evening.
Rain will end by late, late evening-early overnight. HOWVER, there are signs that there could be a little bit of patchy freezing drizzle late tonight with the low stratus cloud deck & perhaps a few little flurries. Winds will crank up tonight with southwest winds initially becoming west, then northwest with gusts up to 30 mph. after midnight.
Tomorrow looks windy with low stratus breaking up in the afternoon with skies likely becoming mostly cloudy, then partly cloudy. Gusts from the northwest may reach 35, mph with sustained winds at 18-22 mph.
