Good Evening,

The low responsible for this morning’s passing snowfall and today’s cooler-than-average temperatures continues to supply the region with sporadic bursts of snowfall at this hour. While only minor accumulations are expected at most, roadways across the region may become slick as our temperature dives even lower during the night ahead.

After recording Lafayette’s coldest high temperature since mid-February, overnight low temperatures are expected to fall to their lowest point in nearly three weeks! We’ll dip as low as 22° in Lafayette; that’s 7° below the average morning low during this time of the year.

Northwesterly winds lingering across the region tomorrow won’t allow for much of a better situation come Thursday. Wind gusts near 25 mph at times won’t allow temperatures to climb out of the mid to low 30s and will keep wind chill values in the 20s throughout the day!

While the snowfall isn’t expected to be a factor Thursday, the skies above Greater Lafayette will remain obscured by cloud cover flowing around the aforementioned low tomorrow. That however, will not be the case come Friday and as a result, temperatures will reach the 40s for the first time in nearly 72 hours! It’s the little victories in life, folks.
