Good Evening,

It’s March 23rd, it was 48° this afternoon, we may see the 60s as early as Tuesday and believe it or not, there is snow in the forecast! Is there anything more Indiana weather than that? The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Newton, Jasper, Benton, Tippecanoe, Fountain, Warren, Clinton and Montgomery Counties that will go into effect at 5:00 A.M. Saturday and last through 8:00 P.M. ET that evening.

I discussed at length yesterday that due to the narrow track of anticipated snowfall, any minor shift in the low responsible for Saturday’s snow may drastically alter our original projections. The latest data has pushed the heaviest snowfall projections nearly 30 miles south of their original position. While that wouldn’t necessarily affect your everyday snowstorm, it’s made a major difference in what’s expected here at home.

Current models suggest that our southwestern counties will receive the most snowfall between early Saturday morning and that evening. More than 4” of accumulation looks likely for parts of Fountain, Warren and Montgomery Counties. Tippecanoe County on the other hand, will see closer 3” or 4”; those of us in Lafayette will find ourselves shoveling about 3” of snow on Sunday morning. That is, unless you just wait for the mild temperatures to take care of the shoveling for you.

Temperatures are expected to warm back up into the upper 50s and even low 60s by next Tuesday. Unfortunately, the warmer weather comes with a side of scattered rainfall. At least it’s not snow, right? We’ll continue to keep you updated on the latest information pertaining to the inbound snowfall as it becomes available.
