    I think the rain has washed or melted away most of the ice on the trees already. Still 32 degrees here tho

  2. Autumn says:

    We had a lot of precip. Our low lying parts of our drive looks pretty deep under water.

    Report of snow in Brook, Newton County. I have had .67 inch rain,.Radar showing transition to snow in northern Newton and Jasper Counties. Looks like snow is pushing southward, actually southeastward.

    Thanks for all u do. It is greatly appreciated. My brother even follows you and he lives in Springfield, IL!!!!!
    Could you explain why precip is all rain with temp of 30 and dew point of 28?? I understand the dendrite growth and temps in upper level but not quite sure why precip not at least freezing when it hits with the above mentioned temps

    Sun is coming out now in Crawfordsville! 35 degrees. What a waste of a perfectly good late winter storm! :(

    Chad it looks like the low is moving to the West not the east is this what you’re seeing. And if so does that mean more rain for us or the stalling out

  15. Monster says:
