1-2" of snowfall has fallen in the southern half of the viewing area 1" or less north of it. I have measured 1.1" of snow at West Lafayette.
1-3" southern half & 1" or less will fall in the northern half by the time all is said & done.
Snow will taper this afternoon, but brisk northeast, then north to northwest winds (15-30 mph) will cause some blowing & drifting snow.
Bitter cold tonight will arrive as Arctic air rushes in & skies clear with a snow pack.
Lows of -1 to 5 are expected with wind chills bottoming out at -20 to -10.
After a mostly sunny, dry, record cold Monday with a high only near 15 with wind chills near/below 0 all day, more clouds with some scattered flurries & snow showers are possible Tuesday.
With this shortwave, winds will be rather gusty up to 30 mph with highs only near 19, keeping windchills below zero in the morning & evening & near 0 to single digits through the afternoon.
Thursday is still the main system to watch. It still looks to have a band of significant snow of +6" it is just a question of where that sets up. There is still a tendency for it to set up right over or over part of the viewing area. However, this is not set in stone. We will monitor.
Next weekends storm looks to have blizzard conditions northwest of our area, but band of heavy snow is possible for a while in our northwestern areas with rain & some snow elsewhere.
Winds look strong with this system with gusts 35-40 mph possible.
