Three Clippers Now Through Saturday

January 13th, 2014 at 4:08 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Wabash is currently cresting 2.5′ above flood stage at Lafayette & will begin to fall overnight.  It will be back to 2′ below flood stage by Friday evening.

It has been a nice, mild, windy day with highs of 48-53!  This is nature’s way of giving us a good day to break up the monotony & gloominess of winter!  What a blessing today has been!

The ice break-up on the Wabash has been remarkable & on the Great Lakes, where the greatest ice coverage since 1994 currently exists, it has been impressive.

Polar & subtropical jets would tend to gell east of here, not near here over the next 7 days.

So any big storms would remain east/southeast of area.  We are looking at just clippers.  However, they will be gusty with minor snowfalls.  The clippers will tend to carve out a trough with coldeer conditions across the area.

First clipper will bring some snow showers tomorrow, more tomorrow night with a few lasting into Wednesday morning.  Accumulations of 1″ or less look good for most of the area, but north & northeast areas may see 1-2″.

    Was a beautiful day and a nice break from the storm. Temp is 47* with light wind. Oh the not so fun things you find in the yard as the snow melts, one of those things being the deposits my dog has left, under layer after layer of snow. LOL. Another I thought the city had picked up our Christmas tree, not it was buried under the snow,:)

    Chad, as always Thank you for all you do!

    @Teri, I just seen your post on the other section. This is a weird coincidence lol. What type of Japanese Maples are you planting? I have a few Emperor 1, Bloodgoods, and a Waterfall lace leaf.

  5. yes it was, ML!! Very pleasant to be able to drive and walk again. I cancelled an appt in Laffy for this afternoon as rain/sleet/snow is forecast. Enjoy that sunshine out there for as long as you can. Radar is showing the mix is not too far away :-(
