(UNDATED) - It's raining, it's blowing, and hopefully it won't be flooding.

The National Weather Service, late yesterday, upgraded the high wind watch for the area to a high wind warning for all of Indiana from Lafayette south.

NWS meteorologists say that winds could be strong enough to cause damage, and, worse, the ground has been softened enough between melting snow and rain that trees are able to be more easily blown over.

Meteorologists are forecasting sustained winds today around 40mph and gusts nearing 60mph.

Additionally, for Lawrence, Jackson and Washington Counties, a flood warning remains in effect for the east fork of the white river.

Both warnings are due to expire early tomorrow morning.
