Front is now through. Cold air moving in

One of the biggest concerns today was along the Big Blue River down in Shelby County.  Fears as of Friday were raised that this could be a historic flood with parts of Shelbyville underwater.  Thankfully the river will crest this afternoon well below the major flood stage.  It will still hit the moderate flood stage and will impact some homes and businesses in the area.

Looking ahead light snow will be possible late tonight into Monday morning.  Accumulation is not expected but we could see slick spots for our morning

commute as a mix of light drizzle and snow could freeze to the road.  Roads are untreated after the big weekend rain.  Please be careful.

Leading up to Christmas day temps will basically be falling.  In fact temps will basically continuously be going down starting now all the way through Christmas morning.  Monday highs will be in the upper 20s and hit overnight with Tuesday highs in the low 20s.  We will finally warm up a little bit for Christmas day with highs in the low 30s.  We do see a couple of cold days ahead as well with morning lows falling to single digits in places Tuesday morning and mid-teens on Christmas morning.
