Beautiful Sunday, Miserable Monday………Great Wednesday-Sunday AfternoonApril 5th, 2014 at 3:17 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
Wednesday-Friday rainfall totals from ASOS/AWOS, private automatic & automatic WLFI stations are below. Time constraints this go-around have delayed this map & prevented me from a more detailed map of all totals in the area.
Sunday looks great, but Monday looks pretty miserable.
Wind will be north & north-northeasterly & strong with gusts to 37 mph. That wind will be off of an icy-cold Lake Michigan. Although our southeastern counties may see 50s to near 60, everyone else will likely stay in the 40s.
Rainfall amounts look higher, too with pretty steady, wind-driven light to moderate rain through most of the day. 0.50-1″ looks good area-wide with lightest amounts in the northwest.
This will prolong river flooding & create ponding, but no substantial to significant flooding is expected.
The good news is that the rain will be gone by Tuesday & late week & into next week look great (as long as you don’t mind strong winds). Highs of 70, 68, 70 & 70 look good for Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday. The strong, dry winds will greatly dry & warm the soils, too!
Showers/storms are likely Sunday evening-night, followed by much cooler weather Monday with highs in the 48-55 range with a potential freeze Monday night (April 14-15) at 27-31.
