Kentland, 4.0" Inches.
Frankfort, 3.9" Inches.
Attica, 3.5" Inches
Remington, 3.0" Inches
Lafayette, 2.1" Inches.
Logansport, 2.0" Inches.
You can see the highest amount coming in from Kentland, with 4" Inches and Frankfort, not far behind with 3.9" Inches! Amazing! We seen two more inches then what was expected because of a HEAVY SNOW BAND that move into the area last night. Take a look at this!This is a look at my Local Doppler Radar at 6:44pm EST Last Night. For you to see all this snow on this radar it has to be heavy! And this image above is nothing but SNOW! The darker the blues and then greens the heavier the snow! This gave way to dime and quarter sized snowflakes last night! This went on for a little while before slowing down and changing over to a light freezing rain by early morning Tuesday. We didn't have to worry to much about blowing and drifting snow do to the fact that this fell as a HEAVY wet packing snow! Great for snowmen! However you had to be careful shoveling that's for sure.
So do we have more snow on the way?? ((YOU BET!!!!!)) :)
Take a look at the current Christmas Eve snow outlook below.You can see that at this time I feel that a 3" to 5" inch range for much of the WLFI viewing area is a good starting point. As always I will fine tune this forecast as we get closer with a Snow - Cast map. This is a system coming from our southwest which means we need to watch it closely! When things line up just right we usually see our biggest snows from these kinds of systems. Right now some models are showing signs of the heaviest snow tracking just to our south however one thing to remember and watch when forecasting these kinds of systems is that the system usually moves 200 to 300 miles more north and west then what the models show! This is why I'm going to start out with a 3" to 5" inch range and take my time on this one! we can always add or take a little as things continue to become more clear!
Now let's take a look at what's in store weather - wise tomorrow (Wednesday) below.
Wednesday we will look for partly to mostly cloudy skies however some scattered snow flurries / light scattered snow showers cannot be ruled out! Models expecting around 0.03" to 0.04" Inches of snow. (Less then a half inch possible) In most areas. Highs will be around 33* degrees with lows that night around 19* degrees. Winds between 5 and 15 mph.
So be sure to keep checking back often bloggers to stay updated on the snow event for Christmas Eve! I will check back again soon.
God Bless, And Merry Christmas!
