Strong Wind Gusts Possibly South Of Indy Tonight

A strong line of storms is racing into southwestern Indiana, and has produced damaging wind in southern Illinois.  I’m not going to rule out wind gusts over 55mph for cities like Bloomington, Seymour, Bedford and Seymour.  The image below was a snapshot from around 12am Sunday.

The Storm Prediction Center is also monitoring this area for a potential Severe Thunderstorm Watch box.  Sean Ash and Nicole Misencik are the SkyTrak 13 weather center following the progress overnight, and will have updates as warranted.

Still expecting another 1″ to locally 2″ of rain overnight.  Lowland flooding and ponding of water on roads is very likely into Sunday morning.  Temps will fall into the 30s by 7am, but will also be followed by a lull in precipitation.  A secondary wave of low pressure will push a new surge of freezing rain/sleet/snow into central Indiana between 1pm-6pm.  Quick accumulation of any of the three is very possible, and roads may become slick Sunday night/early Monday morning as temperatures crash into the teens.

Stay tuned for the latest and thanks for reading the blog – Sean Ash
