The pavement is wet to damp in Greater Lafayette & other parts of the viewing area.

With that, temperatures are 28-32.

With some scattered snow showers mixed with freezing drizzle, there likely are some icy spots already. 

Additional icy areas on roads are possible overnight-Wednesday morning. 

An uptick in some snow showers is likely overnight for the area, like what already occurring in our northern & northeastern counties & over eastern Illinois. 

Some of the flakes there & other parts of the area are mixing with freezing drizzle.  This will all make for slick spots.

The National Weather Service out of Chicago has issued Winter Weather Advisory until early tomorrow morning for Newton, Jasper & Benton counties for the snow & freezing drizzle, which will lead to some icy travel.

Areas of minor accumulation of snow of 1" or less & a trace of freezing drizzle glaze are possible.  An isolated +1" amount is possible in the north.

Scattered snow will taper by late morning to midday tomorrow.  Some clearing is possible later in the day with highs near 32.

Wave of snow is still likely Thursday morning-early afternoon, followed by snow showers after that.  1" or less of snow is likely with a few isolated 1-2" amounts possible.  After 26 in the morning, midday high of 32 is likely, followed by temperatures falling to around 29 later in the day.

Projected Thursday snowfall:

Winter storm is projected to track south of our area this weekend.  However, we still need to monitor it closely.  Not all of the ensemble members have us missing the snow, the mean track has us missing it.

After a brief warm-up, rain & snow should return later next week.  This may end as a period of wind-driven snow.  Much colder, Arctic air will follow.

Rain & mix to all snow is possible around December 20-22.

During the December 16-20 it is possible that some areas drop below zero, based on latest analog guidance.

Temperatures should moderate with rain possible near December 27-28 & again around January 3-4.

Much colder, snowy weather should return after January 5.
