A more winter-like weather pattern is going to settle into the area through the work week. Temperatures today are going to be much cooler compared to last weekend. Highs will reach into the lower to mid-30s this afternoon, which is slightly below average for late January.
Be prepared for lake effect snow showers today, especially points north of the Greater Lafayette area. Strong winds out of the north-northwest will create the scattered snowfall today. The light snow and patchy freezing drizzle may also cause slick road conditions.
Snow chances will linger this evening and tonight with gradual clearing after midnight EST. Snow accumulations will be very minor. Less than one half inch of snow will be possible in our northeastern counties with most of the area seeing a dusting at most.
There should be more sunshine tomorrow with similar highs to today. We are closely watching another storm system that will arrive on Wednesday. At first, a wave of rainfall will arrive Wednesday afternoon with the precipitation turning into a wintry mix at night. Light snow will linger into Thursday morning, meaning the Thursday morning commute may become tricky. We will closely watch the system and have more updates as we approach the event.
