Well the first round of snow is making its way to our east at this time. Here's how much we've picked up so far.
Lafayette, 1.0" inches.
Indianapolis, 0.6" inches.
Attica, 0.5" Inches.
The more north of Lafayette, you go the less the snowfall. Only around a Tenth of an inch reported in parts of Jasper county at this time. However the heavy snow is still to come!
Above you see that first round moving to our east. We will see that small brief break in the snow as we talked about last night. Followed by the heavier snow when will start in later on this late afternoon into tonight.
Right now we are pulling in that brief area of dry air which is why we're seeing this break in the snow. You can see it perfect in this moisture satellite image below.
And just take a look at all that moisture just to our west wrapped up inside that second batch of snow heading our way! Right now I still feel my expected snow-cast from my last post holds true. Take a look at this precipitation model below.
Keeping that heavy band right between Lafayette and Indianapolis over the next few hours. I still believe that the winds will pose a threat with this heavy wet packing snow as we head into tonight. I'm expecting winds between 20 and 25 mph gusting between 30 and 35 mph at times. Weak limbs could snap and some could even lose power.
I will try to have another quick update on here before I head into work at 2:pm. Have a great day bloggers and stay tuned!
