Weekend Quick Cast.....
Saturday we will look for mostly to partly cloudy skies through out much of the WLFI viewing area. Still I'm not going to rule out some Lake effect snow bands dropping a bit more south which would give way to some possible light snow flurries. "Mainly in our northern counties". Still overall most will be mostly cloudy to partly cloudy. Highs will be in the lower 20s around 22* degrees. Lows that night for the COLTS PLAYOFF GAME VS THE JETS!! right around 13* degrees! If we see mostly clear skies by night time then we may have to lower this temperature. Winds will be between 10 and 15 mph.
Sunday we will be looking for partly sunny to mostly sunny skies across the area. Highs in the middle 20s with lows that night right around 15* degrees. Winds light between 5 and 10 mph.
Now! We have seen this light snow the past two days which has put nothing more then a light dusting to maybe a half inch in some areas. Still this has made things SLICK! I have seen more slide off reports for this light dusting the past few days then I would have expected.
Sometimes it can be more dangerous to have this light dusting on the roads making things slick then a whole 2" to 5" inches! Some people think if it's not at least 2" inches then they can continue to speed down the roads. Well, that's just not the case! Here's why I say this. Take a look at these reports!
This one comes in from I-65 Near west Lafayette earlier this afternoon.
Traffic remains limited on northbound I-65 at the State Road 43 exit ramp due to a semi rollover crash as of 12:05 p.m.
No injuries have been reported in this crash which is good news! However things were a little different in this next report below.
This one comes in from I-65 Indianapolis.
Indianapolis - Two separate accidents involving semi tractor trailers have closed portions of I 65 northbound on the south side and the north side of Indianapolis.
Around noon a semi collided with several cars at I 65 and 465 on the south side. An Eyewitness News crew on the scene has confirmed that there is at least one fatality in this crash.
Just after noon a report came in of a jack-knifed semi at the 124 mile marker near 7st Street on the north side of town.
This is why we need to be sure to take our time even if it's just a dusting on the roads! Once you lose traction things can become dangerous FAST! That's why these words say it all "Ice and snow take it slow" Even if it's under an inch!
Now Ice and snow are not the only things making top news stories the past few days! I'm sure you all have heard of this story! A huge mass of dead black red winged birds have been reported over a number of places dead! And not just a few! But hundreds of thousands! I would like you all to watch this video that was taken earlier this morning from Fox News. I want you all to then go to the top of this post and vote on what you think is really going on! Take a look!
So is this Mass Suicide?
We did have a shift in our Magnetic Field, Could this be it?
Is this the start of the Apocalypse everyone is talking about in the year 2012?
Go to the top right side of this post and vote! I want to see what you have to say! Feel free to comment on this topic! Voting will close next Saturday!
Have a great evening bloggers! GO COLTS!!
