Split Flow & Cold Air Saves Lafayette From Another Big One

What a night it was last night! The lunar eclipse was outstanding. I will make sure to post pictures here in a bit, but everybody's attention has turned to yet another winter storm that is impacting Indiana.

The good news for the Lafayette viewing area is we are not going to have another "big one", but at the same time there were be plenty of slush and slipping and sliding out there over the next 24 to 36 hours. This should not keep the FEDEX man from delivering. I want to thank Christian for delivering in the arctic chill and light snow this afternoon and his better half Tara for reading this blog everyday. I take great pride in making this site fun and informative and I will do my best to deliver like Christian does. We will be adding to our 30.4 inches of snow which is already 6 inches above our entire snow season's average. This storm will really be known as an ice-maker and ice storm warnings are in effect for portions of southern Indiana and some significant icing could come as far north as Indianapolis. So be very careful. The farther south you travel tonight through Friday night the worse the conditions. So here is the breakdown here at home.

We have a storm that is coming at us in pieces. This is due to the Alberta block that has brought us brutally cold air this week. It has caused the jet stream to split in two. The northern branch is bringing in a few ripples of energy tonight and the southern branch will nudge more moisture our way by late tomorrow and tomorrow night. Since these two streams of energy are not phasing we will not have to worry about huge amounts of snow and ice here in Lafayete. The rest of today we could see up to an inch of light snow. But we do have warm air advection running our way tonight which will give us an additional inch of snow and sleet to worry about and maybe a little freezing drizzle toward morning. We could see a break in the action Friday before our second wave moves our way by late day and during the evening with another one to two inches of snow.

This means most of our area will see between 2 to 4 inches of snow and slush in the next day, with a few spotty areas close to 5 inches that stay mainly snow. So I will keep you updated on this complex storm. Stay safe and slow it down. We will do some Precision 18 fly-thrus on the news tonight to make it all much clearer.

Do you have an idea as to what time the icing will occure? I will be sleeping before the 11:00 news, and will wake to what ever mother nature as in store, but its my kids that are of concern, do you think this weather will warrent school delays in the Laf, area?
Thanks for all of your updates.
A fan of yours.

Like the previous winter storms we have had this season the tendency has been for them to track more North than first expected, do you think this storm might track North bringing more ice than previously thought?

Wow, i cannot believe how rude some of the people can be on here. It is just wrong how they post silly stuff like that. This storm has me expecially concerned... I'm with the guy above, the storm tracks have moved north in the past and I was wondering if they will go north again? I hope so!!!! Have good news for me at 11 please!!!

actually, we want this system to keep to the south, the further north it tracks, the more warm air it will bring in aloft, and the further north the icing/freezing rain will be

I know what I want. I want more ice so i don't have to go to work tommorow :)

Anything but rain - I will take it. I am tired of the flooding and evacuating (2 times in a month time span) - so this mixed bag is mixed blessings to me.

I live on North River Road - and this morning, instead of the normal roar of semis flying down the road - it is vacant. The only "vehicle" on the road is the highway dept, putting salt/sand on the roads. Even my paperman has not arrived yet!

If we are lucky to stay home from work, school, etc... I hope everyone enjoys it (especially since it is a Friday and the sun is heading our way tomorrow).

Thanks for the great blog!
