Snow Mixing in Earlier, Means More Snow From Lafayette to Indianapolis
The snow is already falling across the area with some huge snowflakes. Dynamic cooling has allowed the precipitation to literally chill the air. It helps that we also have a few inches of snow on the ground from last week. The latest storm track has it moving a little farther south which means the bullsye for this storm very well end up between Lafayette and Indianapolis rather than for Monticello and extreme northern Indiana. The forecast amounts of 4 to 6 inches for Lafayette still looks solid and it should be extended southward toward Indianapolis. I can also see that mesoband of 6 to 8 inch snows now possible for even Clinton and Boone Counties. Areas farther north toward Monticello will still see a solid 4 to 5 inches out of this....so throughout our area I really like 5 to 8 inches. The snow timeline should also be updated for at least 2 to 4 inches of snow by 7 a.m. in the morning and another 2 to 4 inches of snow during the day Tuesday...so most locations will have between 5 and 8 inches of snow before all is said and done. That is the latest as of 9 p.m. I will have more updates coming your way by midnight. Blowing and drifting still look like big concerns.
