Well, we have two under our belt since Halloween!

As of 9:45 p.m., of the reports from area spotters, it looks like most of the area has received 2-3" of snow.

The southern, eastern & northeastern fringes appear to have received the most with isolated +3" amounts.  Highest total so far is 4.5" at Akron, while there is a Waynetown report of 4.3".  Another report 2 miles north of Waynetown is 3".  Crawfordsville spotter has measured 4".

Tippecanoe County totals have run 2.5-3".

In the official West Lafayette weather records (Purdue University & Purdue Ag Farm 1879-present), this snow will go down as the second snowiest for the date in the books.  We measured 2.9" & it is likely that the official total there is similar (total will be up tomorrow morning).

The snowiest was 4.0" in 1921.

This is the first measurable snow for the date since 2013 (0.6") & before that, 1995 (2.0").

Halloween snowfall totals:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Some snow showers & flurries are still in the area, but any new accumulation will be low & shifting to the northeast & eastern areas (lake effect).

There, another 0.5-1" is possible.

Some of the snow showers & flurries will continue in our northeast tomorrow, which the rest of the area is just mostly sunny to partly cloudy.

After 8-16 for lows tonight with wind chills -10 to 3, highs tomorrow ill run 19-25 with wind chills still 3-12.

Lows of 7-11 are likely Tuesday night, followed by a temperature rise to 10-15 late (as light south wind commences).

Clouds will increase Wednesday & it should become cloudy with time.

Southwest winds will be strong at 15-30 mph.

Highs will run 29-34, but not until 8-9 p.m.  Afternoon highs will run 27-31.

Winds chills will be in the teens.

Some snow showers are possible Wednesday night, mainly in the north with less than 1" of accumulation.

The potential is there for a bit of light freezing drizzle farther south.

Once cold front passes we will fall from 29-34 to 21-26 late with wind shift to northwest.

Pattern will do a 180 with warmth, strong southwest winds & some rain by next week!

Big trough West, ridging & warmer in Southeast & East.

We will be caught in-between with rainfall potential.

Very nice warm surge coming next week!  Arctic air slowly erodes in the far Southeast after back door cold front bleeds one last shot of cold on the eastern slopes of the Appalachians.

West is much wetter, snowier & colder (good news for fire conditions in California).

After brief cool-down, a more intense surge of warmth comes in just before Thanksgiving.  It looks like a taste of spring with temperatures potentially in the 60s.

The West, meanwhile, will be cold & unsettled.

Get interesting with some potential severe risk, too as surface low may deepen rapidly over central Illinois to Michigan.

Impressive severe risk may develop in the southern U.S. with impressive parameters shown for severe outbreak (ENHANCED- to MODERATE-type at the moment).

We will watch & watch to see what transpires.

Overall mild, wetter pattern should dominate early December.

Tables should turn with much colder latter December with potential Arctic air with winter weather event/storm near or after Christmas.
