Light snow showers and flurries have been traveling over our northeastern counties through much of the morning commute. Winds are streaming out of the northwest, which has created lake effect snow bands for Pulaski, Fulton and Miami counties. There is going to be a chance for snow through the morning hours for those locations. Skies are already becoming clear in Greater Lafayette.

The winds will shift in a more westerly directions and allow the snow showers to move out of the area this afternoon. Skies across the area will become clearer by the evening commute. A cold front moved over the state early this morning and it will result in much colder temperatures through the afternoon. Temperatures will struggle to rise into the mid-20s later today and the breezy conditions will create wind chills in the teens. Be sure to bundle up all day!

Partly cloudy to mostly clear skies tonight will help lows plummet into the teens early tomorrow morning. Lafayette will drop near 15 degrees, which is below average for this time of year (Average Low: 24°).

We are watching another wave of snowfall for tomorrow afternoon and evening. Slick spots will be possible once again, but there will likely not be much accumulation. Our northeastern counties (Fulton, Miami, Pulaski) could potentially see more than one inch by Wednesday evening. Forecast models are indicating Lafayette will see a dusting at most. We will continue to monitor the active winter-like pattern and have updates online and on air.
