Dangerous Wind Chills!

Take a look at the final rainfall totals from around the area this morning. Everyone coming in with over an inch of rain. 2.05" inches fell in areas of Jasper county up around Rensselaer. 1.73" inches in Logansport. Along with 1.36" inches in areas of Lafayette and 1.10" inches fell across Fountain, county in the Covington area.
The National weather service does have a Flood Warning issued for portions of the following rivers.
Now as we head through out today we will continue to see our temperature fall. We will see a low tonight of 16* degrees! Winds will be blowing between 15 and 20 mph gusting between 25 and 30 mph. Very blustery tonight, wind chills will be something to keep an eye on over the next few days. With winds gusting to 30 mph and a low expected to be around 16* degrees tonight it will make things feel much colder. Wind chill values tonight will be between -5* and -7* degrees. Bundle up!!
If you think tonight is going to be cold, just you wait! Tomorrow will be EVEN colder. I'm expecting a high Thursday of only 21* degrees. A low Thursday night of 1* degree. Winds will be between 15 and 20 mph gusting to 25 mph at times. This will make for a nightly wind chill anywhere between -15* and -20* degrees. This is dangerous wind chills. I'm talking about frostbite possible in 30 minutes! Please take caution and dress very warm.
You can see all the cold air I'm talking about in this image above. we will have a chance for a few light snow flurries in the area as we head into tonight and possibly tomorrow. Nothing much. The cold will remain our big topic over the next few days! So do your best to keep warm bloggers. Take care and God Bless!
