January 11, 4 PM Weather Update

Winter storm approaching.

The last time this much snow fell in the viewing area was the unusually late Easter snow in April with up to 6".  Up to 8" fell in our southern counties March 24 as the unusually cold, snowy March & April brought winter back after an unusually warm February.

Snow totals will vary from around 3" in the far north to 8" in the far south.  There will likely be a band of some +8" amounts just south of the viewing area.

5-6" still looks good for Tippecanoe County.  Highest totals are shaping up for Fountain & Montgomery counties. 

Highs tomorrow will run 31-33 after low 27-29 tonight.

It looks like winds could pick up quite a bit later tomorrow to tomorrow night & even to Sunday morning from the northeast at 15-28 mph.  This will lead to some blowing & drifting snow.

Winds will relax with time Sunday with some flurries & 20s to 30 after low to mid 20s in the morning.

Highs next week will tend to run near 30 to the 30s with lows in the teens & 20s.  Some flurries/snow showers are possible Wednesday-Thursday.

Potential is there for accumulating snowfall next Saturday.

Arctic air will invade on howling winds afterward, resulting in widespread blowing & drifting snow (gusts to 40 mph).

Lows below zero are likely after the potential snowfall.
