Brought to by Tiger Plumbing

Message from The Bill and Kali Show: Good Morning! We hope you are finding these reports helpful. This type of reporting is certainly not in our wheelhouse. However, we’ve decided to add the COVID-19 reports to our daily weather report to provide key information on the COVID-19 virus and the outbreak that is now categorized a pandemic.

You probably have noticed that the information we provide is targeted for our viewing audience which includes the states of Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan that is helpful.

Our intent is not to spur political debate or criticize our government officials who are working hard at keeping us all safe. It is Bill and Kali’s way of saying we care about our community and want us all to get through this so we can go onto covering some pretty amazing organizations and people who step forward to help others. That’s what we do and will continue to do!

This report is just simply our part at helping keep all of you informed and safe, because we care!

In closing we ask that you read and understand some of the guidance that we have been given by the World Health Organization, CDC and your local State and County Health Departments. It is not only for your safety, but that of your neighbors and some of the most vulnerable, those 60 years and above with underlying health conditions.

We will also be doing a series of Facebook Live and YouTube broadcasts. You are more than welcome to tune in. Just stop by and like our Facebook page or subscribe to our YouTube channel. We are also available on Spotify and iTunes. We will keep this report updated throughout the day, however, the most current information can found on your local health department, CDC or WHO website.

Thank you and please be safe! We will get through this!

Sincerely Bill & Kali

WHO therefore have made the assessment that COVID-19 can be characterized as a pandemic.

Weather

Chicago

Rain is expected later this morning but will begin to move out later this afternoon. Rainfall amounts will generally be light and less than one half of an inch in most spots. Areas of fog and some drizzle will then be possible this evening and overnight. Showers and storms are in the forecast for Thursday. Some of these storms could be strong or marginally severe during the afternoon and evening but mainly for locales south of I-80.
We’ll begin to clear out during the afternoon on Friday, but strong and gusty winds down the lake will result in a lakeshore flood potential, especially into parts of the NW Indiana shoreline. Saturday looks dry and cool, while a stray shower will be possible on Sunday.

A mix of rain and wet, slushy snow is moving through the area this morning. A half inch to inch of slushy snow accumulation is possible north of I-94 this morning, mainly on grass and elevated surfaces. Most roads should just be wet. Snow will eventually change to just rain later this morning.
Unsettled weather is expected into Friday, with rain today and tonight giving way to a chance for thunderstorms on Thursday and Thursday night. Rain will end by early Friday, but much cooler temperatures and gusty northwest winds are expected through the day. The weekend looks to be quiet, but on the cool side.

12 Hour Precipitation

National Discussion and Travel Weather

By Ziegenfelder of the NWS

  • Snow expected for higher elevations of the Four Corners, spreading into the Plains and Upper Midwest
  • Severe weather and flash flooding for the Southern Plains and Mississippi Valley through Thursday
  • Much below average temperatures in the West and much above average temperatures in the East

An anomalously strong upper-level low is forecast to sit over California through midweek, while upper-level disturbances moves eastward over the Four Corners into the Plains by Thursday. This will generate precipitation across the Intermountain West through Thursday, and with snow levels dropping, snow totals of generally 6 to 12 inches are forecast across the Mogollon Rim, Wasatch, and Central Rockies, with locally higher amounts in the highest elevations. Snow is expected to spread into the Central Plains by Thursday, with a swath of 4 to 6 inches of snow. Blizzard Warnings have been issued for western Nebraska and southeastern Wyoming on Thursday because of a developing low pressure system to the south and strong Canadian high pressure to the north generating strong northeasterly winds. This should lead to drifting snow and whiteout conditions in these areas. Light snow is forecast for the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest as well.

Farther east, rain and thunderstorms are expected as a warm front lifts north through the Plains, Mississippi Valley, and Ohio Valley today. There is an Enhanced Risk of severe thunderstorms in place as well as a Slight Risk of excessive rainfall/flash flooding for the Southern Plains today, where the best combination of moisture, lift, and instability will be. Then on Thursday into Friday, a cold front pushes eastward across the Central U.S., and rain and thunderstorms should focus ahead of it. Thus the severe weather and flash flooding threats will shift eastward into the Mississippi Valley and Ohio Valley.

Temperatures are expected to be colder than average over California and the Southwest due to the upper-level low, while the Northern Plains will see high temperatures below normal by more than 20 degrees on Thursday as a cold high pressure system builds in. Meanwhile, temperatures in the eastern U.S. are forecast to be more like May temperatures. Today high temperatures should reach into the 70s as far north as the Central Plains and Tennessee Valley, spreading into the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic on Thursday.
