Rain & Wind Arrives But No Severe Weather Expected
Good to check in with you and it is nice to be tracking our first significant rain on Live Doppler 18 since October 24th. The rain is right on schedule and it looks like by later this evening most of us will be able to squeeze out about a quarter of an inch of rain. Wind gusts will stay in the 30 to 40 mph range and we could still have a rumble or two of thunder. Lightning tracker has been very quiet as you see above and there have been no weather warnings. The latest lightning scans as of 3:45 has absolutely no lightning now being reported across all of Illinois and Indiana. Make sure to check out our new lightning tracker on wlfi.com. Based on the latest model data our severe weather threat remains low. Now get ready for a wild ride that could include some cat tracks of snow in Indiana by late tomorrow night. We do need to cool things down because our Golden Snow Shovel contest is just about ready to be launched. I will have details on this and much more tonight!
