January 26, 1 AM Weather Forecast Update

Here is your latest forecast update...

Posted: Jan 26, 2021 12:21 AM
Updated: Jan 26, 2021 12:54 AM

Widespread icing of 0.10-0.25" has occurred over the area.  This, in combination with that window of higher winds, has result in power outages scattered about the area.  Secondary roads are iced over (especially untreated ones), but main roads are in decent shape (other than bridges & overpasses).

Light freezing rain, freezing drizzle, sleet & some snow will occur in the north tonight with a change-over to some light rain & drizzle in the south where temperatures will warm above freezing.

Temperatures are 30-34 as of 12:30 a.m.  The 33-34 line is now from Covington, Veedersburg & Attica to Waynetown & West Lafayette.  This +32 line will tend to expand a bit  eastward & set up over the south.

That said, with winds going light to calm, a bank of dense fog is possible along & south of Route 26 early this morning.

We should go to all light snow by midday & afternoon area-wide with north-northeast winds picking up again at 15-30 mph.

As the system snow departs, lake effect snow showers will come in late afternoon-evening as Lake Michigan is unseasonably warm & nearly completely unfrozen right now.

Highs will run 32-35.

Much of the viewing will pick up 1" or less of snow total by early Wednesday morning.  The far northwest will see 1-3" with up to 5" along the Kankakee in Newton to far northwest Jasper County.

Watch for slick areas this evening to early Wednesday morning with lows in the 20s.

Wave of snow is possible Wednesday, followed by some lake effect snow showers with strong north winds 15-30 mph.

The heaviest snowfall will stay west & south of our area, but 1" or less is possible here.

A shift to a slightly more northerly or northeasterly track will result in higher totals here.

After a potentially clear, calm night with surface high & freezing fog with coldest night of winter at the end of the week, much, much warmer weather with 40s, strong southwest winds & rain is possible Saturday to part of Sunday.  This may end as brief snow as temperatures fall Sunday.

Monday looks rather seasonable, followed by major warm-up with near/record warmth possible in the February 3-10 time frame with showers/storms & even some severe weather risk.

Mid-February looks much colder with ice event risk, then snow event, followed by much warmer weather again with wetter weather later in the month.
