(WLFI) - Good Wednesday morning! It sure is cold out there with temperatures dipping down in the lower 30s region-wide. Areas of frost are likely so give yourself some extra time and get that ice scraper out!
(Preliminary low temperatures this morning in the above image ranged from 31-35 degrees)
The National Weather Service has all of the WLFI viewing areas underneath a frost advisory until 10:00 AM EDT this morning. Flood warnings are still active along the Wabash River.
For the rest of the day, high-level cirrus clouds will be with us which points to a change in the forecast. That change comes in tomorrow (Thursday) with another low-pressure system working in and lasting until early Saturday morning.
Today, however, will be a nice fall-like day with mostly to partly sunny skies and highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Overcast conditions will work in tonight and give way to scattered showers Thursday morning. It will not be as cold tonight as lows are expected to be down into the mid to upper 40s.
More widespread rain is likely by Thursday afternoon. Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 50s.
By Friday morning, we will see some dry time but more rain will work in the rest of the afternoon and evening.
Once this system exits the region by Saturday morning, we could receive 0.5”-1” of rainfall throughout the area.
The weekend looks fantastic with near-average temperatures and more sunny conditions by Halloween on Sunday!
