Wintry Weather Lingers

We're not through with the winter weather quite yet. More cool air paired with isolated snowfall remains in our forecast.

Posted: Mar 5, 2018 11:27 PM

Good Evening,

We’re currently seeing scattered and sporadic rainfall, wintry mix and wet snow on our radar, though fortunately most of that wintry precipitation is melting on arrival. Even more fortunate, drier conditions are expected to return for Tuesday morning’s commute. The dry weather however, isn’t likely to last the entire day.

I’m tracking a slow moving core of low pressure that, on its way towards playing a much larger role in supplying New England with their second Nor’easter in a week, is expected to generate additional rain and even light snowfall for Greater Lafayette beginning tomorrow afternoon.

Current model data indicates that the first of the precipitation should reach our westernmost counties between 2:00 P.M. ET and 3:00 P.M. ET before progressing eastward across the rest of the viewing area. We’ll witness the gradual transition from scattered light rain to sporadic snow showers between that period and about 9:00 P.M. ET.

The last of the organized wintry precipitation should exit east of the viewing area by the predawn hours Wednesday, though we may still see a flurry or two linger towards Wednesday morning or even afternoon. In addition to the snow chances over these next 24 to 36 hours, Greater Lafayette also stands to see its coldest day in nearly a month!

As long as Wednesday’s forecasted high holds, 35° will mark our coldest peak temperature felt here in Lafayette since only reaching 34° on February 17th! Temperatures will remain unseasonably cool through the majority of the extended forecast.

Longer range models, on the other hand, are favoring a warmer trend towards the middle part of the month. As long as we can weather the cold for now, it appears as though we’ll be rewarded later this month.
