6:37 a.m. EST – The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory for the entire viewing area for this Wednesday. Wind speeds will likely remain light through the morning commute, but will pick up as we approach midday. Wind gusts up to 50 MPH are going to be possible this afternoon.
The advisory includes:
- Tippecanoe-Clinton-Carroll-Fountain-Montgomery-Warren counties from 10 a.m. EST until 7 p.m. EST.
- Benton-Newton-Jasper counties from 10 a.m. EST until 7 p.m. EST.
- White-Cass-Miami-Pulaski-Fulton counties from 9 a.m. EST to 6 p.m. EST.
Higher pressure will provide the area with sunshine this afternoon and evening. High temperatures are going to be above average once again as temperatures reach the mid to upper 50s this afternoon.
Light cloud cover moves in tonight and wind speeds will become much lighter. Another cold front will travel south over Indiana on Thursday, which will bring us more clouds and cooler temperatures by the end of the work week.
Big changes arrive as we head into the weekend and it is going to feel more like winter. Light snow showers are going to be possible on Saturday and now forecast models are indicating much lighter snow totals (generally 1″ to 2″). We’ll continue to watch the system and have updates on WLFI and Weather Blog 18. Stay tuned!
