Weather Advisory for Thursday

posted Feb 19, 2014, 11:35 AM by Brian Donahoe   [ updated Feb 19, 2014, 11:38 AM ]
2/20/2014. Sleet/snow/freezing-rain in the early morning, rain/flooding in afternoon, high winds in evening.         

Winter Weather - Thursday Morning, 3:00 a.m. through 9:00 a.m.

There is a possibility of sleet, snow, or freezing rain in Lake County, with perhaps a few inches of accumulation. Slight changes in the development or track of the storm could lead to more snow, more ice, or only rain for our area. With this uncertainty, people should be prepared for the possibility of some travel impacts Thursday morning.


Rain / Fog / Localized Flooding - Thursday 10:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.

Rain and warmer temperatures will combine to enhance the melting of snow, leading to increased runoff and likely some minor flooding of poorly-drained roads and streets. Some flooding of basements is also possible, though no widespread significant flooding is expected. As the temperature rises, local areas of dense fog are also possible.


Strong Wind - Thursday Evening, 5:00 p.m. through 10:00 p.m.

Winds are forecast to increase through the afternoon, with sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph and gusts up to 50 mph possible through the evening. With the top portion of the soil likely to be thawed by the rain and melting snow, strong winds may topple some trees, which could lead to scattered power outages.
