Record-Breaking Highs Bring January Thaw Early!
All eyes are on flooding this weekend. Stay with WEATHER TEAM 18 for the latest. The good news for our area rivers is that the bulls eye of heavier rain is setting up in Illinois. If this map holds true we will only see minor flooding. In fact the forecast crest on the Wabash River has already been lowered to just above bank full this weekend. Check below for the latest advisories. The only wild card in all this is if that heavy red band shifts over us. This would be caused by more widespread thunderstorm activity over our area which I think will stay to our south. Our cold front does not arrive until late tonight which will help stabilize things. We just have to take it hour by hour and watch those radars together this weekend. I still think we will have a few rumbles out there. I will check back with you. The good news today is that we will not see an all day rain. Get outside while you can. Spring is about 84 days away but today it will feel every bit like it!
