We are now up to .10" already here in Lafayette. The new data is showing the bulls eye of the storm from Lafayette to Indianapolis. Areas to our north including Monticello will also get plenty of snow. My wife just got a text message from me about the snow....she only gets those in special circumstances. Yes! Look for an upgrade to a winter storm warning for Lafayette. I will be back with the particulars soon. I think we can name this the Super Bowl Snowstorm since it is happening during Super Bowl week!! Yes!!!! Congratulations snow geese we pulled it off! I will be back with details on the big conference call and finish looking at all this impressive snow data.....
Preliminary Snow breakdown: Look for 4 inches of snow by midnight and another 2-4 inches by 7 a.m. for Lafayette (Grand total of 6" to 8" of snow with locally heavier amouts for Frankfort and Crawfordsville where totals may push 10" in spots)
Monticello I see 2 to 3 inches of snow by midnight and another 1 to 3 inches by 7 a.m. (You are in the 4 to 6 inch band) this includes all of our northern counties with a 2 to 4 inch band for northern Newton and Jasper County.
This is what I am thinking right now but my final call will be made at 4 p.m. today and of course it is Indiana so we will be watching this thing closely in case we have to add more....this monster storm has a lot of potential to be much bigger for us or should I say the Super Bowl Storm.
Oh yes for those wanting facts: Fact: the QPF or quantitative precipitation forecast has doubled since 1 a.m. last night and yes the northern trend continues with the main low pressure track now 100 miles farther north.
I only deal in facts when live's and people's safety are on the line. Remember this is WLFI, your one and only local weather authority and our weather team takes it seriously. We are here for you and only you! These are the snowy facts. Please be safe and remember I just tell it like I see it and am just the messenger. If I really wanted to get folks worked up I could have called for a lot more snow which is still possible. I just gave an average snowfall forecast.Carry on bloggers!
