Newton and Jasper counties are not looking for ice as much as sleet and snow! Which is good! They are looking for snowfall right around 2 inches maybe 2 and a half inches possible! Still where ever you are with any chance of ice you should drive slow and be careful! Here is a few quick road reports to give you an idea!

So do be very careful!!
Now I would still not rule out Lafayette seeing less in the way of snow just yet! It is possible we could see less then an inch! And this is because this system has really lost moisture for us on the back side! Here is an image I have posted to show you what I'M talking about!I have outlined the dry air moving into our area! You can really see this is DRY! This is why I say Snowfall could be less yet! Maybe less then one inch! And you can thank all this dry air that is moving into place! But I would not say this is a bad thing! Why? Well as we have been seeing all morning! We have had temperatures in the 29* to 30* degrees range! I think if we had more moisture we would be seeing more ice then snow anyways! So i less moisture means less ice! Then fine with me!
