Rain Changes Back to Snow TonightFebruary 1st, 2014 at 11:06 am by Rob Lydick under Weather
Temperatures will continue to climb into the upper 30s to near 40° today, but once a cold front passes through this evening, temperatures will tumble below freezing. Any rain falling will change over to a bit of sleet and freezing rain this evening before changing over to all snow after midnight.
While some of this snow will melt on the wet ground (from the 0.5″+ of rain will pick up today), some will stick. 1″-2″ of snow will be possible throughout much of the area overnight tonight through early Sunday morning. Some higher totals, on the order of 2″-3″, will be likely in areas north and west of Fort Wayne – especially LaGrange & Steuben counties. These areas will see more snow because they will change back over to snow first tonight.
Snow should taper off tomorrow morning, though watch out for slick road conditions. Remember, with temperatures falling down to near 20° Sunday morning, any standing water will freeze.
We’ll see a brief respite from snow chances on Sunday and Monday, before a storm sliding through the Midwest will bring snow back into the picture by Tuesday afternoon. This storm won’t dump the ridiculous 30″ of snow that some rumors have stated, though it will likely be plowable – possibly on the order of 6″+.
Of course, keep checking back for all the latest as we fine-tune this forecast!
