Three Clippers Now Through SaturdayJanuary 13th, 2014 at 4:08 pm by Chad Evans 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″.
