More Snowfall On The Way

Heavier Snowfall South of Fort Wayne

Accumulations will be less than 1″ around the FW area

There is a Winter Weather Advisory south of Fort Wayne for 1 to 3″ of snowfall

A system which will over spread snow region wide will once again expend most of its moisture to our south. This time the bulls eye is right around the Terre Haute area which they could see up to 3″ of snow. The graphics above represent the how much snowfall I believe we will get across the central and southwest part of the state this afternoon and this evening. The second graphic shows the Winter Weather Advisory area which includes Muncie and Indianapolis, where 1 to 3″ of snow will fall.

New Year’s Eve A Little Slippery

Snow forecast for New Year’s Eve

I expect that most of our snowfall will be late this afternoon and into this evening. The snowfall will begin to taper off by mid evening but we could still look for very slippery roads and side walks.

Cold Start To 2013!

Cold air will begin to buckle the jet stream as it filters in through New Year’s Day

This cold air will begin to filter into region overnight New Year’s Eve and continue to decrease in temperature through New Year’s Day. This process will cause the coldest days of the winter which is only just beginning. Highs will only be in the 20s for the next several days. Because of the snowfall low temperatures will fall into the single digits. If there wasn’t a snow pack the ground would insulate the air a bit and the warmer air from day time heating would dissipate into the night air. Because there is a snow cover air is not allowed to heat up during the day using the insulating properties of the ground.
