Winter Storm Watch Now Winter Weather Advisory

February 25th, 2013 at 3:47 pm by under Weather

WANE TV does not issue weather watches or warnings, the National Weather Service does and just now, they cancelled the Watch and issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the counties highlighted in tan above.   This is only until noon Tuesday.

What does this mean?

Even as I look at the current and newest weather data, this appears to be more of rain event with ice than a big time snow event for Tuesday.

HANDS DOWN, IT MAY BE VERY SLICK FOR A FEW HOURS LATE TUESDAY MORNING!!!!!!

I am still putting together the forecast, but here are my thoughts:

Tuesday Timeline for Fort Wayne:

  • Early lunch precipitation starts as freezing rain or sleet.
  • Ice chances over to rain by early afternoon into the early evening.
  • Rain changes over to snow by mid evening.
  • Totals include: .25″ ice, .50″ rain and about 2″ of snow.
  • Another round of snow is possible Wednesday, about another 1-2″ possible.

    I really want the snow. This has been a dreadful winter for snow.

      Yes, I haven’t used the 4 wheel drive on my Jeep Wrangler yet this winter… a good snow might be more fun than ice and rain.
