Now I have been going through data off and on all day. The latest data has come in and most things look on track which is a good sign! However some minor things have changed ever so slightly! I'm going to do something that will either be good! Or make me look like a total fool! I'm going to raise the snowfall range slightly! And I believe I'm the only one calling for this higher range right now. Take a look.I have a number of reasons for doing this. Right now the models are doing an okay job forecasting this storm however I don't feel that they are doing a great job on the forecasted amounts! That's why I'm taking it into my own hands to raise them slightly. The only place that I feel the models are doing a good job forecasting is around Kokomo, IN. The MOS models are already calling for 3" to 5" Inches. However they are also showing a WIDE AREA of 2" to 4" Inches south of there. So this is the new map I have come up with above. You can see I have just about all of the WLFI viewing area in the 3" to 5" Inch range! And north of Remington, in the 5" to 7" range. Up around Gary IN, could see higher amounts yet!
Still the biggest threat is going to be Both the Blowing Snow! And the Wind Chills! Still forecasting wind chills of -20* to -22* below zero come Sunday night into Monday! Winds Tonight blowing around 25 Mph near 30 mph at times possible. And winds blowing tomorrow between 25 and 30 mph with gusts around 35 + mph not out of the question!
So please everyone take your time if out, Or if you can stay home then please do! With this snow and winds this high visibility will be low!!
Ice, Wind, And Snow, Take It Slow!! Also we do have a Winter Weather Advisory In Effect For The Whole WLFI viewing area from 1:pm Sunday To Midnight EST Sunday Night.
And a Winter Storm Warning In Effect For Benton, Newton, And Jasper, Counties From 3:am CST Sunday To Midnight EST Sunday Night.
I'll check back if needed.
