Temperatures dropped below zero this morning, making it one of the coldest mornings since mid-January! Wind chills dropped near -20° at times in our northwestern counties during the morning commute. Even though it was a very chilly start to Monday, skies remained mostly clear.
Quiet weather conditions are expected through the early afternoon with cloud cover increasing as we approach the evening commute. We are closely watching our next round of snowfall, which will arrive this evening and bring accumulating snow to the Greater Lafayette.
Precisioncast has snow showers moving into our northwestern counties (Benton, Newton) around 5 p.m. EST with snow arriving to the Lafayette area between 7-8 p.m. EST. The snowfall will become widespread over the viewing area near 10-11 p.m. EST. Heavy bands of snow may drop the visibility at times overnight and snow-covered roads will create slick road conditions. Be careful if you plan on traveling tonight and early Tuesday morning!
Snow totals will range between one and four inches. The lowest totals will be in our southern counties (closer to 1”) with the highest totals in our northwestern counties. Isolated 4”+ will be possible within Benton, Newton and Jasper counties.
