Weekend Outlook!

Hey bloggers, it's been a little while since I last checked in with everyone! Sorry for that, It's starting to get into that time of year when things start to warm up which means more work for myself lol. I'm still trying to keep updates on the blog so please continue to check back off and on through out the weeks.

Right now there is a strong cold front moving across the states which has given way to some pretty strong storms in areas! However no severe storms for us this time around to worry about thank goodness! This cold front has set up farther south this time around keeping the severe weather away from us!
There are a few storms developing in a line heading into southern IL, and that could effect parts of southern Indiana, however I think we will miss out on any severe weather this time around here in the WLFI viewing area. You can see in this image above where all the strong stuff is taking place this evening. Also with a low pressure system as strong as this one has been we are seeing lots of gusty winds around the area. The national weather service has even issued a few wind advisories in some of our northern counties such as Cass, and White, counties. This advisory is in effect until 10:pm EDT tonight. This is in effect because winds could gust to 25 - 35 mph in these areas at times!

We will see this low pressure system continue to make its way east over the next few days. We are in a break in the rain for now however as we head into Saturday we will start to see that scattered rain fill back into the area as the low pressure system gets closer. Take a look at this surface chart below.
This is looking at Saturday afternoon around 2:pm EDT. You can see just some off and on scattered showers are expected. Rainfall between a tenth and a quarter inch at this time. We will see winds breezy as that low pressure system nears the area with steady winds between 10 and 15 mph gusting to 20 - 25 mph near 30 mph at times. Expect a high Saturday around 54* degrees as that cold front passes the area. Our average high for this time of year is right around 60* degrees.

We will continue to see these clouds and scattered showers push off to our east through out the day of Saturday which means Partly cloudy skies as we head into our Sunday. Partly cloudy in the morning hours of Sunday with a high around 58* near 60* degrees. More clouds will enter the area later that afternoon with another chance at some rain showers by Sunday evening / night into Monday.

So that's just about it for now bloggers. It's one of those weeks where we can still get out and enjoy however you just gotta plan around the few light scattered showers! ;) Have an awesome weekend bloggers. I'll check back again soon.

God Bless!
