Quick 35-45 mph Wind Gust with Cold Frontal Passage……Widespread Flooding……..12th Consecutive Day with at Least a Trace of Rainfall at WLFIApril 18th, 2013 at 9:56 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
A quick 35-45 mph wind gust is possible with cold frontal passage this evening. Temperatures will quickly fall 10 degrees as front passes from near 61 to near 50 quickly. Front is just about to come through West Lafayette/Lafayette.
After a wet pattern since April 7, we have had a new 2-5″ of rainfall in the viewing area since Tuesday, including 2.01″ here today alone at WLFI. Since April 7, we have receieved some amount of rainfall every day at WLFI, which has added up to 6.08″ over that 12-day period.
Back edge of the rain is just inching very, very slowly eastward. This will be a very gradual process.
Rain will likely not exit Lafayette until near 3 a.m. & the entire viewing area until 6 a.m.
Watch for flooded roadways! They are especially hard to see at night!
