The latest snowfall reports.....

Snowfall total here at West Lafayette is 3.0" though depth is now down to 2.5" due to melting & settling with temperatures of 32 with end of February sun (despite snow continuing to fall).

4.0" has been reported from Battle Ground & 3" from Purdue.

These are the totals I have received so far, but I will have many more with time, especially tomorrow morning.  This is due to CoCo & COOP observers reporting in.

Totals range from 2-5" over the area currently (of the reports received.

Any totals are greatly appreciated!

Heaviest snow is exiting, but steady snow goes back to the state line.  Once that departs, we will go to just some snow showers & flurries.

Visibility is still near or under a mile in the eastern half of the area from falling snow.  Visibility is a bit better in the far west, but still mostly 2-3 miles.

However, the cold, cold air will begin to roll in with that as well.

We are now dropping into the upper 20s in the north.  The south & southeast are still 31-33.

Winds have gusted from the north to north-northwest as high as 34 mph as of 3:30 p.m. 

Blowing & drifting is underway, especially in open, rural areas.

Watch for roads icing up this evening.

After a few early flurries possible, Thursday should be a partly cloudy to mostly sunny day with highs in the 20s.  However, the end of February sun will do its thing!  Substantial melting will take place.

Clipper Thursday night-Friday morning may bring some snow showers.  Lows of 14-19 are likely.  However, how many snow showers, what the snow intensity will be & how much accumulates is in question (trace, 0.5" or 1-2"?).  The track is unclear at the moment.

There is also a shortwave that tries pivot through behind clipper that pops some scattered snow showers Friday.

Due to lack of model cohesiveness on either, I just put a generic 25% for snow Friday.

Due to the uncertainty of whether the skies will completely clear Friday night, I bumped the low up to 10.

Weekend looks bright & ok at the moment.

Thing to watch is rainfall early next week.

Periodic rain may begin as brief sleet early Monday morning with temperatures 32-36, followed by periodic rain.

Periodic rain will last into Tuesday.  At this point, it appears that the heaviest rainfall would occur Tuesday afternoon.

Potential is there for a total of 1-2" Monday-Tuesday atop saturated ground, which would lead to river, creek & stream rise & result in water-logged soil & ponding in fields.

We may clear Tuesday night.  If so, & the winds do diminish, some fog may develop late (like after 5 a.m.).  50-55 with partly cloudy skies should follow on Wednesday.
