A Flood Watch is in place for the entire Wabash Valley and much of the region beginning tonight and lasts through Sunday morning as large amounts of rain are forecast for the Valley. By Sunday rain totals from this event will range from 2.00-4.00," with the heaviest amounts being south/southeast. Temperatures will remain very mild until this slow moving front passes through by the end of the weekend. Today highs reach the mid-upper 50s with scattered, light rain showers moving through. Tonight-tomorrow night we drop into the upper 30s. Flood threats are most likely for tomorrow afternoon-night when the heaviest and most widespread rain moves through along the cold front. Highs tomorrow will still be fairly mild in the mid 40s. The cooler air starts moving in Sunday with temperatures falling during the day and rain coming to an end. There may be a brief period of rain-snow mix later Sunday as the system finishes passing through, but nothing significant is expected. Next week is colder with upper 20s-upper 30s through Christmas Day with dry conditions until Thursday. Stay weather alert this weekend. And remember our phrase, "Turn around, don't drown!"
