Here is the latest on cold, active pattern.

Wind chills dropped to as low as -15 in the viewing area this morning.  They rain -10 to -7 around Greater Lafayette.

At there is some sunshine today & that will be the case Saturday, as well.  The winds will gradually diminish, but not before we see wind chills drop to as low as -13 tonight as we drop to -2 to 4.

Snow comes in near midday Sunday, but new data suggests a changeover to some freezing rain &/or sleet for part of the area.  If this comes to fruition, it would cut 1-3" totals up to half.  We will monitor & have another update later today.

East to southeast winds will run 8-12 mph with this system.

The heaviest band of snow is actually trending much farther northwardfrom Iowa to Wisconsin with 3-6".

A powerhouse storms will roar through Monday evening to Tuesday night.

Freezing rain, sleet & snow may occur briefly at the onset, then precipitation should go to cold rain area-wide, then changeover to a driving snow as temperatures plumment.

So, be mindful of potential of rather brief snow & icing impacts Monday evening-early night (brief light ice/snow accumulation), but late Monday night to Tuesday morning to early afternoon look better with just rain.  However, late Tuesday afternoon-evening & into Tuesday night, it should go downhill with snow & howling winds.  The potential there for 1-2" of snow.

Speaking of the winds..........

Monday evening-night: Southeast 20-35 mph

Tuesday morning-Tuesday early afternoon:  Southwest 15-25, then 20-30 mph.

Tuesday late afternoon-evening-night:  Northwest 30-50 mph

Multiple storm systems with snow & ice potential may impact the area February 12-24:
