Snow showers have moved into our western/ southwestern counties this midday. The snowfall will become widespread across the area by the evening rush hour and will continue to fall through the evening. Forecast models have the snow showers moving out by midnight EST Saturday. Skies will remain mostly cloudy the rest of the overnight hours. Lows will drop near 10° in Lafayette.

Recent model runs are showing the potential for slightly higher snowfall totals than previous forecast models. Generally, 1” to 3” of snow will be possible by early Saturday morning. However, heavier bands of snowfall may set up over the area as the system travels over Greater Lafayette. The heavy pockets of snow may quickly dump 3” to 4” of snow in isolated locations.

We will continue to monitor the system through the afternoon and evening hours. Stay tuned for more updates on Weather Blog 18.
