Evening Update.

Well, bloggers I will be here most of the night if not all night! Working on updates every so often. Right now I have put together a few maps to give an idea as to what we will be seeing tonight and also a look at tomorrows wind chills to go along with all this snow! Take a look.
Yes, tonight we will look for off and on heavy snow! Looking for 2" to 4" inches of snow tonight which means you will have fun cleaning off the cars in the morning if you have to head out! Expect a low tonight around 17* degrees with winds between 15 and 20 mph. Blowing snow! And with winds like this we will see a night time wind chill around 0* to 4* degrees.

My last snow - cast still stands. See the last update for the Snow - Cast map.

Here's a look at tomorrows wind chills.
A high of 24* degrees with a daytime wind chill around 5* degrees. Nightly low around 18* degrees with a night time wind chill around -10* degrees! Remember we will also be seeing HEAVY SNOW later on tomorrow with winds gusting to 35 and 40 mph. This means lots and lots of blowing snow and whiteout conditions across the area! Very Dangerous! Again if you can stay home that would be best!

Now at this time Tippecanoe, and Clinton, counties are under a Level 1 Advisory! What's that mean?? Well, it means that routine travel or activities may be restricted in areas because of a hazardous situation such as our BIG snow event! Citizens should use caution or avoid these areas. Schools and businesses may also begin to implement their emergency action plans.

Here are the latest watches and warnings for the viewing area below.

Blizzard Warning:
Benton, Newton, Jasper, Counties.
This warning is in effect from 4:pm EST Tuesday through 4:pm EST Wednesday.

Winter Storm Warning:
Whole WLFI Viewing Area.

Stay safe bloggers! I'll continue to check back off and on as needed. Also don't forget, You can send your snowfall totals and snow pictures to me at Thanks Ahead Of Time!

God Bless!

Justin, I can't decide if I hear sleet or rain outside. Yikes! But I'm glad the schools have cancelled, just to be safe. And if I'm right, the actual storm doesn't move in until tomorrow afternoon/evening? Keep up the great work. I watch religously for your updates.
