Highs today ran 25-29. Low clouds hung on much of the day except in western Benton, Warren to southwestern Fountain counties. There, sunshine appeared, which helped the Covington observation site reach 29.
This will be a slushy, heavy, wet snow. 12" of fluffy snow can weight as little as 2 lbs. a sq. foot. Most fluffy snows has a 15:1 ratio at 4.1 lbs per square foot. Typical 10:1 ratio is 6.2 lbs a square foot for 12". However, you take a heavy, wet snow & a 12" depth can weight 12.5 lbs. per square foot!
6" snow with this one would weigh around 5 lbs. per square foot.
It has been a awhile since we have shoveled a +3" snow, so be careful! Losing a life due to shoveling is not worth it! It can put such strain on the heart if you are not in shape for it or if you are of advanced age.
My thought is that the snow may be coming in a bit sooner & leaving a bit earlier than it looked at 6 p.m.
Rather than 7-11 a.m. arrival, new data suggests 4-9 a.m. It could exit 8-11 p.m. rather than 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
I did shift the 5-7" totals a bit more to the north. I shifted the 3-5" only very slightly northward.
