__________________________________________________________________________

Winter Weather Advisory is up for the entire viewing area for this evening & tonight for snowfall.

Snow will tend to fall in the 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. time from from the Alberta clipper.

3-6" of snowfall is expected for much of the area, except the far northeastern far & far southwestern fringe with 1-3".

The best chance of seeing some 5" & 6" totals will be in a narrow, discontinuous path from northern Warren, through north-central Tippecanoe to northern Clinton County.

Wind will not be a big factor with this system.

20s to lower 30s Friday with partly to mostly cloudy skies will give way to some patchy freezing drizzing Friday night as temperatures rise to 27-32 after dropping to 18-25 initially in the evening.

With mostly cloudy to cloudy skies Saturday, some patches of drizzle are possible as temperatures rise to 37-45 by evening.  Temperatures will tend to rise Sunday night with upper 40s to lower 50s expected Sunday as major thaw ensues.

Much of Sunday is trending dry with a mix of clouds & sun with brisk southerly winds.  It will be a car wash day for sure!
