Hello! We have been playing the waiting game all night and it does concern me that temperatures are at 17 in Monticello and 19 in Lafayette at 10 p.m. Dewpoints are also rising. So this cold, dry dome of air looks like it will succumb to a strong, moist southwest flow. We were supposed to be about 4 degrees colder and a little drier at this time. What this means is our snowfall forecast at WLFI which has been on the higher end of all the area forecasts across the state looks on target. The warmer temperatures and higher humidity is a sign of more snow on the way, not less.
The latest storm track is slightly farther north which I expected and already adjusted for in my snowfall forecast earlier. So as of now we are still in the 3 to 5 inch snow band.
One big concern is that with the warmer temperatures tonight I am worried about the ice mixing in farther north which could include areas just south of Interstate 74! Watch out, the dreaded winter of ice may come back to haunt some Hoosiers tomorrow and we will have to watch it even here at home. I will make sure to keep you updated.
