Light flurries have been falling across the viewing area this morning. Accumulation is not expected with this wave of light snowfall, but we are tracking a system for the weekend that could potentially bring minor snow accumulations to Greater Lafayette.

The flurries today will wind down by the afternoon hours and cloud cover will begin to decrease after noon EST. Skies are going to become mostly clear by the evening rush hour as temperatures struggle to rise into the upper 20s and lower 30s. Northwesterly winds between 10-15 MPH will create wind chills in the teens through the afternoon.

The area will remain mostly clear tonight with plummeting temperatures overnight. Lows will fall into the teens with a forecast low near 17° in Lafayette. Temperatures today and tonight will be trending nearly 10 degrees below average for mid-December.

Highs tomorrow are going to be slightly higher compared to today and will reach the lower 30s. There will be several quiet hours on Friday before a Clipper system arrives late Friday into Saturday morning.

Snow showers will arrive after midnight EST Saturday and will travel southeast over the viewing area through Saturday morning. The heaviest snowfall will likely occur late Friday night-Saturday morning for the Lafayette area.

We are also watching where a lake effect snow band may situate itself Saturday morning. At this point, forecast models are indicating that our northeast counties (Fulton, Pulaski, and Miami) have the best chance of seeing the lake effect snow showers. As a result, we have placed the highest snow totals (2”-4”) within our northeast counties. The rest of the viewing area will potentially see 1” to 2” of snow by Saturday afternoon.
