You can’t turn any channel or really go anywhere without the burning question about the weather. What’s going on with this winter storm? Have you changed your forecast? How will it effect our area? Here is the latest thinking from the weather center:
Our ‘in-house’ model has a generous amount of snowfall especially around the Fort Wayne area and across NW Ohio. It seems that this model has been the forerunner with this particular storm system and some of the other models are now catching up with it. I don’t think any of these amounts are unreasonable here. The biggest problem Friday will be when does the temperature move above freezing and how many hours of snowfall do we see before that happens.
According to our high resolution model we will see heavy snowfall from around 2am until about 9 am. So again these totals are not out of the question for our area.
Here is what it will look like around the region. Notice the big winner here. Kansas City nearly 2 feet of snow! Nebraska, Iowa and parts of southern Illinois will also be hard hit with this storm system.
