January 3, 4 PM Weather Forecast Update

New data is in....here is the latest on the longer-range outlook!

Snowfall totals from Sunday morning varied from 0.8" to 4.5". 

That 3-5" did indeed set up over our area rather than just east & northeast of us.

That band ran from Pence & Hedrick through Pine Village, Boswell, Fowler, Otterbein, Chalmers to near Delphi, Twelve Mile to Rochester.  1.8-3" was reported across Greater Lafayette.

You can see where the low clouds & fog are located based on the temperatures.  This is verified on visible & IR satellite.

Low clouds & freezing fog will continue to migrate eastward & temperatures will fall to at/slightly below freezing as they come in this evening.

A disturbance & weak surface cold front pass, some patchy light freezing drizzle, few patches of light freezing rain & some patchy light snow will be possible.

A light dusting/thin coating of snow & ice are possible.

Watch for some slick spots on roads tonight & tomorrow morning & reductions in visibility to under 0.50 mile.

A lot of gloomy, gray weather is ahead with temperatures averaging near normal during the day here in early January, but a bit above normal at night.

After a few patches of frozen precip Tuesday morning, the day overall looks cloudy with a damp coldness. 

Wednesday looks gray & slightly warmer.  Storm system will tend to track southwest & south of our area, but a few isolated to spotty snow showers are possible.  If any accumulation can occur it would be spotty & only amount to a light dusting.

Thursday looks gray with a few isolated to spotty snow showers or flurries.  Again, any small area of accumulation would only amount to a light dusting.

If we are lucky, we will see a few breaks in the low clouds Friday, followed by a gray, dreary weekend.  Some scattered snow showers are possible Saturday & Sunday.  Any accumulation looks to be under 1".

Monday looks gray with a continuation of 30s for highs.

Mid-next week feature a system with some mix to rain to snow.  Some minor accumulation of ice & snow cannot be ruled out.

After January 15 & before January 21, there is a surge of colder weather & potential of a decent shovel-able accumulating snow.

After that it continues to look much warmer with surges of unseasonable warmth at the end of January to early February with even potential of a day or two with record highs.  Some t'storms are also possible with above normal rainfall that may send river to near/at flood stage after chronically very low levels for months.
