I am making a few tweaks to the forecast based on new data.
There are two main waves of precipitation Monday-Tuesday, however, it appears that a break will occur in-between the two waves Monday afternoon.
However, watch for slick spots tonight from moisture refreezing on roadways with lows 27-30 with some freezing fog.
Wave #1: Monday......8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Over Viewing Area
Snow with some sleet & freezing rain will pass in the 9 a.m.-2 p.m. time frame with lightest amounts north & heaviest amounts south.
Snow & coating of freezing rain/sleet possible.
Temperatures will run 28-32.
Wave #2: Monday Evening-Tuesday.....5 p.m.-3 p.m.
After a break, the heart of the wintry precipitation will overspread the area in the evening.
After highs of 32-36, we should drop to 28-31 Monday night.
Snow, sleet & freezing rain will be over the area during the evening & night with a change-over to rain south & southeast of Lafayette.
Overnight, the rain will change back freezing rain & sleet. The snow line will work back southward.
Snow & freezing rain & some sleet will even be around early Tuesday morning before changing to all snow area-wide. Snow will end by late Tuesday afternoon.
Highs on Tuesday will reach 30-33.
The worst of the conditions look to be Monday night-Tuesday AM.
A period of east-northeast to northeast winds gusting 35-45 mph (sustained 20-25 mph) are possible Monday night with 15-30 mph winds the rest of the time Monday-Tuesday.
Snow is possible Wednesday night-Thursday morning with minor accumulation. It appears the heaviest will stay south of our area, but we will monitor for any changes to that trend.
