Icy roads with freezing drizzle, light freezing rain & snow around.

Snowfall totals very from trace to 1.2" in the area.  Highest totals have come in from the Earl Park, Kentland to southwest of Brook areas.

I measured 0.1" snow near the station, but 0.01" of freezing rain & a trace of sleet.

It is icy out.  There is minor ice accumulation area-wide from freezing drizzle & light freezing rain.  Trace amounts of sleet have occurred.

HRRR model shows some snow swinging through with time this evening, tonight & through tomorrow morning.  Freezing drizzle & light patchy freezing rain will continue for a while longer.

It will be icy this evening-tonight & into Monday morning, so be careful out there!

It has 1-2" amounts in the north & 1" or less elsewhere additionally by Monday midday.

We may even have a few flurries & snow showers linger into to as late as Monday night.

So, 1" or less will do it for much of the southern half, but 1-3" will suffice for the north. 

After breezy conditions lastnight & early this morning, we saw a break this afternoon, but winds will pick up tonight, but from the north to northwest.   Gusts 20-25 mph are likely.

Snow should come in Tuesday night after 10 p.m. (after mostly cloudy skies during the day).

With brisk east to southeast, then southerly winds, precipitation should go from snow to ice Tuesday night-Wednesday morning, then transition to rain Wednesday afternoon before ending.

As winds go light to calm as rain ends & surface low moves right overhead Wednesday, a few hours of widespread dense fog are possible with drizzle.  Temperatures will run in the 34-37 range with some snow & ice pack over a frozen ground with melting snow & ice.

The fog should be mixed out by strong gusty northwest winds with passage of the cold front in the early evening.  Temperatures will quickly tank to the teens & 20s following frontal passage, with wind chills falling in the single digits to 0.

In terms of snow & ice accumulation, I am thinking 1-2" snow could occur in the north with less than 1" elsewhere.

Some sleet is possible with up to 0.10" of freezing rain.
