Perfect Weekend……This Week: Looks Warmer with Front Slowing Down

November 18th, 2012 at 5:27 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

It looks more & more like any rainfall this week will be confined to Thursday night, rather than Tuesday night or Wednesday as front slows.  Even with this, current data suggests any showers will be gone by 6 a.m. Friday morning, but will move in after 8 p.m. Thursday evening.  It appears coverage will still run around 35% with totals of 0.10-0.20″ expected.  Will watch to make sure front does not slow down any more.

Before this front moves through, temperatures look to surge into the 60s with lots of nice, nice weather Monday-Thursday!  Also, highs Friday still look to be in the 50s, followed by 40s to around 50 Saturday.

    Some big time November snowfalls!
    Friday November 3 1899- 5.7 inches of snow fell that day. It was said that the flakes had a clinging tendency that glued them to everything they struck. Electric wires of every description suffered. The Lafayette telephone company had a number of lines broken because of the weight of the snow. The Purdue football team was to play Chicago at Chicago on Saturday. I don’t know what the condition of the football field was that day.

    Friday November 11, 1921- 4.0 inches of snow fell on West Lafayette. The temp. fell to 22 degrees on the morning of the Nov. 12th. Four inches of snow was recorded on Nov. 12th and another inch was recorded on Nov. 13th. 5.5 inches of snow fell in Nov. 1921 and only 1 inch in December 1921.

    Tuesday evening November 15, 1932- A big snowstorm hit Lafayette and before it was done 7.8 inches of snow fell. At 2:30 pm Wed. it was reported that all state and federal roads leading out of the city were still blocked by snow drifts. Many cars were stuck in the snow along the various roads. At Frankfort Indiana the storm started with a drizzling rain Tuesday morning and changed to a driving sleet and then snow by the middle of the afternoon. By 9 pm there was nearly 3 inches of snow on the ground. Many schools were closed in Clinton County. How many times have schools in Indiana closed because of snow in November?

    Wednesday November 23, 1938- After an extended period of mild weather during the early Fall, 3.5 inches of snow fell on Lafayette and the ground was covered with snow on Thanksgiving Day but the sun came out that morning and the high was 36 degrees that Thanksgiving.

    Wednesday November 7, 1951- 6.8 inches of snow was recorded at Lafayette. Two inches of snow had fallen by 7am Tuesday. This was the coldest and snowiest Nov. 6 since probably 1880. It was Election Day but despite record snowfall it was reported that early balloting was nearly normal. Old-timers said this was “the worst election day in history. Party headquarters had many telephone requests for transportation to and from voting places. It was hard to fill all of the requests because of slippery street conditions. 11.3 inches of snow fell in Nov. 1951. The temp. fell to 13 degrees in Lafayette on the morning of Nov. 8
