Snow Moves In With The Heaviest Yet to Come

Update time! I better lay off the caffeine. This is the latest on expected snowfall totals....there have been concerns of being dry-slotted but at this time we are in the sweet spot of the storm which means areas farther southeast closer to Indianapolis would have to worry about this much more than our viewing area. The ice-snow line will be moving northward but the latest data still has most our area staying all snow and that is why I upped the totals closer to 10 to 14 inches. If you are in Frankfort, Tipton, and Kokomo it looks like some sleet will mix in at times late tonight but it should only be for a brief time before changing back to snow, so these areas could still end up with a healthy 8 inches of snow or more. Our weather team will be here the entire night and I am really excited about my wife bringing by some chili this evening. There is nothing like a good old-fashioned snowstorm with great food! Well, I am ready to ride out another storm with you all and let me get our storm picture parade off to a good start.

Yes, our weather team's big measuring stick is ready. Make sure to send in your snow totals. It is amazing that this storm is still several hundred miles away. This first batch of snow is just a taste of what is to come.Let's make this our best picture storm montage yet! I cannot wait to see your pictures, photos, and stories. Remember to run those errands early tonight because the roads are already getting slick. Check back with you soon! The new model runs are getting ready to come in!
