Rainfall totals vary from 0.02" along the Kankakee RIver to 1.80" in the south & southeast.  Highest totals are found in Howard, Clinton, Montgomery & Fountain counties so far.

In the Greater Lafayette area, totals very from 0.49-0.73" with the highest totals on the southeast side & lowest on the far northwest side.

An additional 2-4" of rainfall is expected for the area.

National Weather Service hydrologists forecast Moderate flooding on all area rivers & creeks in the area.  Potential is there for isolated Major flooding.

After some lulling, rainfall & isolated t'storms pick back up late today & especially tonight.

Early Saturday morning, there is the risk of an isolated severe storm or two.  Main threat is wind.  Temperatures may reach the lower 60s in our southeastern half with 50s elsewhere (it will be cooling to 40s in northwest though).

Heavy rainfall will occur well into Saturday.  Rain will continue into Saturday evening.  Temperatures will fall into the 30s & 40s over the area.

Rain will end as some brief icy mix, then some light snow.

Trace amounts of ice & less than 1" of snow is possible, mainly in our northwestern counties.

Saturday will be windy, but Saturday night looks very windy with gusts 40-50 mph & a few isolated +50 mph gusts possible.

Lows will drop to the mid 20s.

Sunday looks much calmer with decreasing clouds & 30s.

Bitterly cold air races southeast into area by Thursday.  Note how Southeast ridge props it up though & it doesn't completely blast our area.

It will definitely be bitterly cold here, but not as bad as it could be.  It will drop to -40 in Minnesota & -20 in Iowa.  We are looking at single digits to 0 at the moment with highs in the teens.

This is a system to watch next Friday-Saturday for two waves of icy mix & snow here.  We will monitor closely.
