Snow & some icy mix should overspread the entire viewing area from southwest to northeast in the 1-4 p.m. time frame tomorrow.
Snow may not completely end until Thursday night.
Wind will not be an issue initially, but it will become an issue Wednesday night & especially Thursday when gusts of 35-45 mph will be possible at times. Widespread blowing & drifting snow will occur late Thursday-Thursday night.
Cold will become an issue Thursday as temperatures fall from 28-31 in the morning to 8-12 by early evening with wind chills dropping to -11.
Lows of -12 to -2 & wind Thursday night will result in potential of wind chills of -30 to -20.
Count on rough driving conditions Wednesday late afternoon to Friday.
3-6" of snow is likely for much of the viewing area Wednesday-Thursday night.
It is still unclear as to where a 6-9" band will set up. Model below & other models have it in the heart of the area from Warren & Tippecanoe to Carroll, Cass & Miami counties.
I'd like to get more data under my belt before I decide to paint 6-9" band in the heart of the area instead of the northwest.
