Flood Watch for Tippecanoe River

March 15th, 2014 at 10:11 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Highs today will vary from low 40s in the north to near 60 in the south with around 50 in the Lafayette area.

Complex metamorphosis of rapidly-strengthening single storm system will occur over Kentucky & Tennessee tonight with clipper gelling with upper low from Desert Southwest & influx of Pacific moisture.  Also, baroclinically-induced low-level jet will pump low-level moisture northward, resulting in a blossoming of precipitation south of our area.

A few snow showers/flurries are possible Sunday-Monday here, but it will not be a big deal.  The main snow & wintry mix will occur well south & southeast of our area.  It will be windy Sunday-Monday.  Gusts Sunday may reach 40 mph from the north & northwest.
