One more day of quiet weather on Tuesday and then the pattern becomes more active for a few days. Plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures on Tuesday will be rule as highs will range from the mid 50s to low 60s. While there is a chance of rain Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the more prominent event will be Wednesday night through Thursday. Precipitation will start out as rain Wednesday night and then mix with and change over to snow from northwest to southeast across the area beginning Thursday morning. Current indications also show strong winds and perhaps flooding due to high waves near the Lake Michigan shore. Stay tuned for later forecasts over the next few days.

We are still concerned about the low lying areas near the Little Calumet. Although they are not noted in the NWS Warnings, the concern is over the low bridges particularly Kennedy Ave. near 80/94. Even though the temperatures may have been above freezing, it was not sustained enough to thaw the ground. So lookout for that stuff. Particularly if you are one of those who does not recognize that they put barricades up for a reason.

Actually flooding or no flooding, we always worry about you. Because if you try to bypass a barricade during a flooding condition, there is always room for concern. We have suggested putting tire piercing spikes down in addition to the barricades and the IDOT stated “We know these people, and they would go around the barricades with or without flat tires, because there is a Starbucks a block away and help us all if they don’t get their salted caramel macchiato with almond milk….bla bla bla… that takes them six minutes to order one flippin drink…Seriously what happened to ordering a regular that takes all of one second to order?”  So thank you IDOT for being on the same page as us. We love you guys!
