Right now it is just virga over the area (precipitation that is drying up on the way down). You can see it on radar.
It is actually relatively mild for being climatologically the coldest time of the year. Temperatures as of 1 p.m. are 32-38 with southeast wind, so you would think it would be all rain coming in this evening.
At first....yes....then it should go very rapidly to all snow.
Winter Storm Warning is up for all our our counties expect Fountain & Montgomery. Those two counties are under Winter Weather Advisory.
Vermillion, Parke & Putnam counties, on the southern border of our area, are not under any alert. So, this shows you the rather sharp cut-off & the much lower totals as you go southward as it changes to rain sooner.
Light rain & some sleet at the onset should go to snow quickly (heavy at times). We are fair came for precipitation to over arrive in our southwestern counties after 3 pm. It should overspread the area from southwest to northeast quickly & with rapid changeover to rapidly-accumulating snowfall.
The 100% entire viewing area should be covered in snow by 8 p.m.
HEAVIEST SNOWFALL IN THE AREA SHOULD FALL 6 PM-2 AM AT 1-2" PER HOUR AT TIMES.
HEAVY, WET, GLOPPY, GLUEY NATURE OF THE SNOW WITH SOUTHEAST TO EAST-SOUTHEAST WINDS GUSTING TO 35 MPH MAY RESULT IN A FEW LIMBS COMING DOWN OR A COUPLE POWER OUTAGES, ESPECIALLY IN AREAS THAT SEE MORE THAN 5" OF SNOW.
BE CAREFUL SHOVELING AS IT WILL BE EXTRA HEAVY, WET SNOW.
SOME OF THE SNOW WILL MELT BY TOMORROW MORNING SO PEAK ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE OVERNIGHT TONIGHT. IN AREAS THAT GO TO RAIN & WARM UP THE MOST, THERE WILL BE CONSIDERABLE MELTING.
There is still a trend to change the heavy, wet snow to rain/snow & rain later tonight & into Sunday for all except our far northern & northeastern counties.
After highs today of 35-41, then a drop to 30-33, we should rise to 32-36 later tonight-Sunday AM & 33-38 Sunday.
Snowfall totals look unchanged currently since lastnight.
Temperatures should fall from 34-39 by midday Sunday to 30-33 by late in the day.
Rain & rain/snow (snow far north) should go to light snow & snow showers.
1" or less of accumulation is expected Sunday night-Monday AFTER THE HEAVY SNOW.
Winds may gust to 35 mph from the north-northeast to north Sunday.
As temperatures fall Sunday evening-night to eventually the mid 20s, re-freezing of slush, water & new snow will create some slick conditions.
