Wind Advisory for High Winds Sunday Afternoon & Night

Just checking in....here is what you need to know. The worst of the wind will from Sunday at 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. Monday. Wind gusts will be from 35 to 45 mph. I have isolated wind gusts near 50 mph Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. and once again Sunday night from 9 p.m. until midnight. This will make driving very difficult so be careful.

Tidbit number 2: Heaviest rain holds off until Sunday night. Here is the breakdown:

.25" of rain
.05" of freezing rain (early Monday moring between 5 a.m. and 9 a.m.)
.15" snow (possible light dusting....mainly an inch or less between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.)

Huge temperature drop over 40 degrees likely!

Outlook for rest of week: Mainly a rain event now for Thursday...but models may be having a tough time addressing how much cold air will be in place...stay tuned.

Hey Justin you there????

Hi, Justin and all bloggers, I was just listening to my NOAA radio, it was stated that we could receive an inch of snow and sleet mix by Monday morning. Low of 29* by morning as well, I hope they are wrong!

One never knows about Mother Nature, and as Mike stated "models may be having a tough time addressing how much cold air will be in place...stay tuned". Will do.....

What happened to good old forcasts? We used to be able to log on get the forecats and radar. Now we only get radar and blogs. I dont want blogs, i want real weather forecasts!! Thank goodness the weather channel doesnt brag about puppies, or what their kids ate for lunch! They tell the real story!

Hey Anonymous I bet you are 100% all the time right???

Mike you are doing a great job :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend off with your family!

A lot of bitter posters on here today!

I agree with the posted above you do a great job Mike and we all Love your Blog!!!!!

I have rain showing up on my radar and some gusty winds around 40 mph!! Hang in there Bloggers! :-)

If you dont want weather blogs then why are you posting? This is a friendly blog where most share a common interest the weather!

And sorry to say, disagree with you regarding the weather channel. they do not get right to the forcast most of the time, yes 8 on the hour is the same old stuff, all day, not much updating.

I have watched animal rescue stories, healthy eating,how to fix a furnace, home repair, ect how to grow a beautiful flower garden, on the wx channel. Go to their web site and you will see out dated forcasts and pics of puppies and kittens, and tons of adds!

MY,goodness!!! I agree with Justin, and most who post on the blog.

Yes Justin, has been a drizzle off and on for awhile. I have been watching trash cans being blown around.

I for one enjoy this blog, reading about puppies and what kids had for lunch. I appricate Mikes forcasts, passion for weather and watching out for us.I also appricate our blogger friends.

It sounds like a constant roar out there! Nathan, I just went for a short walk, tried anyway, the wind is so strong, makes walking tough!Dont want to even think about driving!

It felt like I was being sandblasted with all the blowing leaves and all. Christmas lights down all around, as well as some small branches! Well there go the lights again:)))))

Oh me oh my!

That is some wind tonight! We were out at Lafayette's Living Nativity, and I just knew that the star of Bethlehem was going to go flying off of the manger, over the church, and land somewhere back in the boat of the disciples! lol

BUT, I checked the blog this morning, and read ahead that it would be this windy. So, I was not surprised.

What is up with the sour comments. Do people not remember that this is the season of peace and happiness??? I really love our little "community" here. Like the blog, enjoy the puppies, and even like to hear about lunches. ;) Thanks for a fun place to talk about weather Mike!

any mix or ice monday or tuesday no ones seems to be talking about this storm

In the near term...cold front currently pushing through the western parts of the
state. Should be east of the local area by sunrise. Models/Sat data
suggest best lift lags a bit behind surface fnt...with surface observation
indicating a fairly rapid changeover to freezing rain/sleet a few
hours after frontal passage. Appears changeover should be over the central zones
around sunrise...and over the eastern zones by 15z or so. Main lift zone
is fairly narrow...so only xpctg threat for sig mixed precipitation to last for
only a few hours this morning...before tapering off by after. Based on
above...planning on an advisory for mixed precipitation all areas this morning.


... Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 10 am EST /9 am CST/
this morning...

The National Weather Service in northern Indiana has issued a
Winter Weather Advisory for a mix of freezing rain... sleet and
snow... which is in effect until 10 am EST /9 am CST/ this
morning.

Rain will mix with sleet and freezing rain... and then change to
snow with rapid freezing of surfaces by 6 am EDT... 5 am CST.
Some areas of blowing snow are likely before the snow ends.


A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... sleet... or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.

Hey bloggers.

Cold at only 13.5* degrees I went outside earlyer this morning and did not have gloves!! Boy I'M nuts!! lol.

Hey everybody we need to keep a close watch on our wind chill today and tonight! Tonight winds will be between 15 and 20 mph. Making it feel like -7* degrees out there so keep yourself covered and stay warm. Hat gloves and all that!!!!!

For Tuesday cloudy then snowy later in the day! with some possible sleet as well. Which could give way to some freezing roads! As of now sometime after
4:pm the timing will change so we will have to keep up on that!

Totla percip around a quarter inch possible.

I'll catch you all on here later.

Thank all of you for posting the weather, I have come to rely on your expert predictions. My husband relies on me to tell him what is going on.
Thanks again.

Starting to worry about Mike. It's not like him to let his blog page slip. Is he on vacation? My oh my...we have come to rely on his insight!

Don't you just get furious with bloggers who leave nasty and negative comments? This has become a community of friends who are interested in weather AND each other! I like it very much and know most of you do, too.

Anyway, could you believe the temps last night? My high was 54* at midnight! Then to wake up to 10* was something else! Flash freezing caused many doors to be frozen shut this morning. My peak gust was at 38 mph! Has this been spring we would have had tornadoes flying around. I have friends on the east coast who were affected by the ice storm. Anyone remember the ice storm of 1991? pics look amazingly similar.

take care until later!
