Just virga to spits of light snow in part of the area now, but heavier snow should rapidly overspread the area 4 p.m. & onward with conditions going downhill for the evening commute.

Snow & sleet are possible in the southern areas.

Temperatures will drop into the 20s.

Snow northwest & changeover to sleet & freezing rain will occur in the southeastern 2/3 tonight.

Winds will be strong & gusty from the northeast tonight (gusts +30 mph at times), but freezing rain may put a glaze ice lid on a lot of snow & sleet, decreasing blowing & drifting.

Temperatures will run in the mid to upper 20s.

We should go back to all snow Thursday morning.

Widespread snow will decrease to areas of snow with time Thursday.

Strong winds from the north (gusts +30 mph at times) will blow this snow around.

Temperatures will run in the 20s to around 30.

3-6" of snow is likely in the northwestern half, while 1-3" is likely in the southeastern half.

Areas that have the 1-3" will see the best coverage of sleet & freezing rain accumulation.  Up to 0.1" of sleet & freezing rain accumulation is possible.

I am considering putting the 6-9" band a little farther eastward into Newton & Jasper counties.  Stay tuned, as I'd like to get a couple more model runs & compare what is unfolding on radar with those models before I do that (if I do that).

Greater Lafayette is right on the edge of 3-6" & 1-3", so around 3" is likely by Thursday evening.

Wind will not be an issue Friday with clouds & potentially a few isolated flurries/light snow showers.

Clipper will pass Saturday with wave of snow showers.  1" or less of accumulation is possible.

It will turn breezy to windy for a while, as well.

Temperatures will run in the 20s to lower 30s.
