December 16, 11:30 PM Weather Forecast Update

Here is your latest snow update.

Totals vary from 0.5-4" over the viewing area right now.  Highest amounts are in Fountain & Montgomery counties.  Lowest totals are in our northern areas like Jasper, Cass, Pulaski counties.

I have 1.8" presently at our West Lafayette site.

1.5-2" has been reported from Greater Lafayette with up to 2.5" in the far southern part of Tippecanoe County.

Here is this first round.....completely winding down by 7 a.m.

1-4.5" of snow north to south is likely with around 2-3" on average for Greater Lafayette area

Second round is really speeding up.  Looks like it will be in here NOT tomorrow evening-night, but afternoon-evening.

Snow may reach our southern counties by 1:30-2 p.m.

Between these two rounds, some spits of snow or even bit of freezing drizzle is possible.

Melting is possible, mainly roads with temperatures rising to 31-33.  They will fall to 27-30 with the snow.

Wind will pick up from the northeast tomorrow & especially tomorrow night.  Gusts to 25 mph will increase to gusts 25-35 mph as it turns more to the north with time tomorrow night.  This will make for blowing & drifting right through Tuesday.

Look like another 1.5-3" of snow south of Route 18 (Fowler-Brookston-Delphi-near Grissom ARB line) tomorrow-tomorrow evening.

North of there, looks like 1" of snow or less.

So, total accumulations should run 1.5" to as much as 7.5" north to south.  This adds up both rounds separately, despite melting in-between.  So if you get 3" tonight & 1.2" tomorrow, even with melting a bit in-between, your total would be 4.2". 

One round has 1-4.5" & the other has less than 1" to 3".....highest totals in the south.

So..........final totals:

Newton, Jasper, Pulaski, Fulton Co. 1-2.2"

Benton, White, Cass, Miami Co. 1.7-3"...

Carroll Co. 2-4.5" (highest south)

Warren, Tippecanoe, Clinton, Howard Co. 2.5-5"...(higher end in southern Clinton Co. with near 4" Greater Lafayette)

Fountain, Montgomery Co. 4-7.5"...

Stay tuned, there is a trend to shift higher totals northward........this is why I increased the southern half of the area's totals slightly.

____________________________________________________________________

After a lot of colder weather, we should see a big melt-down Friday with highs in the 30s to lower 40s.

Next potential of any amount of precipitation would be Saturday of next weekend.  Trends have been to bring another wintry storm system in, but it is off & on presently with that notion.  We will monitor.  Good agreement has spread completely apart now.
