We had active weather to kick off the work week, including a wintry mix and light snow showers into the early morning hours. The system quickly moved out before the morning commute and left a very thin glaze of ice in southern parts of the area. A light dusting of snow also accumulated in West Lafayette and created slick spots this morning.
Air temperatures near and above freezing has helped melt some of the snow/ice this midday. However, areas of fog have developed because of the “warmer” air over the snow-covered ground. Patchy fog will linger through the afternoon and may drop the visibility at times during the evening commute. Highs will reach the mid-30s today.
Surfaces will likely refreeze tonight as overnight lows fall into the upper teens and lower 20s. Another slick morning rush hour will be possible, especially on the side streets and county roads. Otherwise, skies you can expect a mostly cloudy sky with a forecast low near 18° in Lafayette.
Temperatures are going to gradually rise this work week with forecast highs into the mid-50s by Thursday. Highs that day will be trending about 20 degrees above average for this time of year! The warmer weather is going to be short-lived with our next system arriving at the end of the week. Rain will transition to snow by Friday night. Highs in the 20s return by the weekend.
