Rainfall Sunday & Monday Plus Rapid Snowmelt May Lead to River & Stream Flooding

March 6th, 2013 at 3:52 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

With a rapid snowmelt & the potential of widespread rainfall late weekend-early next week, areas of river & stream flooding seem likely next week.

Right now, it is likely the Wabash will at least make it to flood stage with potential of it rising several feet above flood stage.

This is all dependent upon how much rain fall Sunday-Monday.  Some models are painting 1-3″ of rainfall for the area.  We will iron out some rainfall numbers with time to see if this is actually good output or not.

We need to watch this closely.

    Got our snow to shovel. Got the breathtaking scenery. Got my first snow day since the Blizzard of 2011 (that was a stressful event in this household.) Now i am ready for the spring when nature comes alive again. I can’t wait til my son starts marching with his drum corps Blue Stars (bluestars.org) as they compete throughout the US and this year there are 4 shows in Indiana! Summer in Indiana…it is the best. When paired with the marching arts there is nothing better. There is my shameless plug for DCI (Drum Corps International) My son could give you countless WEATHER related stories regarding tour and venues! See…i brought my post full circle. *tee hee*

    Noticed the big boys at the weather channel in Washington covering a dud storm they said the models messed up. Sounds like the models screwed up the big boys.

    I have not heard of a “Snow Dance” Is this what the snow lovers have been doing?

    SNOW DANCE…..Flush Ice Down the Toilet
    Put A Spoon Under Your Pillow
    Run Around Your Tables 5 Times
    Do the Snow Dance (move your arms up and down gently while moving in slow circles)

    LET IT SNOW!

    I hope yoU ALL know I am joking, however from what I have read on here all winter, I can picture a few doing this;)
