Just went through the latest data this evening, It's looking more and more likely for a snow / sleet event rather then ice this time around. This is very good news. I know a lot of you are tired of winter weather however I'm sure you'd rather take snow / sleet then ice! The timing is still looking on target starting between noon and 2:pm EST Monday afternoon. Take a look at this surface chart below.
This is looking at Monday afternoon 1:pm EST. You can see the snow and sleet starting to make its way into the viewing area. That pink area is where we're expecting the mixed precipitation to form. as we head into the afternoon hours / evening hours we will see more wide coverage across the state. Take a look at this next surface image below.
You can see by 7:pm EST the snow is starting to make it's way out of the area. I currently think we'll stay mostly snow during this event however that sleet mix is possible. MOS models still showing snow sleet mix between 2 and possible 4" inches while the Bufkit models are expecting 1" to 3" inches. I think this is a good starting place for expected snowfall. wide areas of 1" to 3" inches with isolated 2" to 4" inches in areas.
Above is a look at the most current Bufkit data. You can see all those blue bars, This is showing precipitation in the form of snow. Still some small bars of sleet in this image however a mostly snow event. The more south you go the wetter the precipitation will be with some rain mixed in. Closer to the Indianapolis area. Be careful when out and about tomorrow bloggers. Have a great night and I'll check back again soon. I'll be at work all day tomorrow at the vet clinic, I will try to check back in as soon as possible!
