Cold front mixed & scoured out the fog early this morning & after highs overnight of 41-51, we are 33-39 as of 4:35 p.m.  Northwest wind gusts have run 26-32 mph today.

After 0.40-1.10" of rain last night, creeks, streams & rivers are up.

This includes Wildcat Creek in Howard County, which will reach near flood stage tonight after rising more than 6 feet since last night.

The Wildcat near Lafayette has risen nearly 4 feet since lastnight & will crest just under flood stage.

Big Pine Creek has gone up by nearly 4 feet & will crest near bankfull tonight.

Wabash should crest near 1.5' above flood stage at Lafayette Wednesday night, but may reach up to 3' above flood stage in parts of southern Fountain County by Thursday.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

We will clear tonight, but some lake effect cloudiness may sneak into the area late tonight to tomorrow morning before clearing again.

Then, high & mid clouds from Plains winter storm will stream in later tomorrow.  These clouds will thicken tomorrow night, then exit Thursday morning.  However, a band of lake effect cloudiness will arrive as those afformentioned clouds exit.

By Thursday afternoon it may be a situation of sunny skies in the western part of the area, but mostly cloudy to cloudy skies in the east.  A few lake effect snow flurries are even possible in the east.

It will be quite cold Wednesday-Thursday-Friday.

Friday looks mostly sunny to sunny area-wide & warmer.  However, it may turn breezy from the southwest in the afternoon at 15-25 mph.

Dominant precipitation type Sunday-Monday is looking more & more like rain, but some snow cannot be ruled out at the onset & then at the end of two waves of rainfall.  It appears that 0.50-1.25" is possible rainfall-wise at this time.

We will continue to monitor.

We should warm up with clouds & drizzle Tuesday & strong southwest winds.

Rain is likely Wednesday with 50s, then falling quickly to the 30s with wind turning to the northwest.
