Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this Friday morning, which means he is forecasting six more weeks of winter! We are tracking winter-like weather pattern for the next several days for the Greater Lafayette area. Temperatures are going to stay below average during the next work week with multiple chances for snow.
An area of high pressure is going to travel over the state today and it will keep the weather quiet through the afternoon. Expect mostly clear skies with chilly highs in the lower 20s. Forecast high temperatures are nearly 15 degrees below average for early February.
Skies will remain mostly clear during the evening hours, but cloud cover will increase tonight with another storm system moving into the Midwest. There are going to be several dry hours on Saturday, however, snow chances will increase by the evening hours.
Scattered snow showers will continue to fall Saturday and Sunday. The “heaviest” snowfall will occur Sunday morning and the snow will begin to taper off Sunday afternoon. By Sunday evening, the viewing area could see 1” to 3” of snow accumulation with our northern potentially seeing the highest snow totals. Be prepared for tricky travel conditions this weekend because the light snow totals may create slick roads.
