Snow showers traveled over the viewing area last night and left significant snowfall in our northwestern counties. We measured 1.4” of snow at the station in West Lafayette, but there have been reports of 7”+ of snow near the Rensselaer area! Kentland and Monticello received about 4” of snow. The picture below shows a list of snow reports and totals from the system last night. Thank you to those who reported their totals!
Skies have turned mostly clear this morning with lows dropping into the single digits. Areas of light fog developed at times during the morning commute. The fog situation will improve as we approach midday. However, prepare for an occasional slick spot on roads today because some of the light snow may blow and drift. Highs will reach the lower 20s this afternoon with skies becoming mostly cloudy by the evening commute.
We are tracking another round of snow for tonight. Snow showers will begin to move into our western counties around 9 p.m. EST. Scattered snow showers will continue to fall during the overnight hours and linger into the first part of Wednesday morning’s commute. Most of the snow will be east of the viewing area by 8 a.m. EST.
The snow totals will likely be lighter compared to Monday night’s snowfall. The highest totals will target our northern counties with minimal accumulation south of Lafayette. Around an inch of snow will be possible for the Greater Lafayette area. Areas north of Tippecanoe County may potentially receive an additional 1-2” by Wednesday morning.
