Snow Showers In the Area with Light Accumulations In Our Northeast Already

December 10th, 2012 at 9:45 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Snow showers & flurries continues across the area.  Some of the snow is falling at a moderate clip for a bit.  Up to 0.5″ has accumulated in far northeast Pulaski & in Fulton counties.  Up to 0.5″ has fallen west & northwest of Kankakee, Illinois in a cluster of heavy snow showers that fell apart before reaching Benton County.

 I am going to go with the wording of 1″ of less, rather than less than 1″.  I think some places may reach the 1″ mark in our northeast with other areas at 0.2 to 0.6″.  Areas more towards our southwestern counties, including Lafayette may only see flurries to perhaps 0.1″.

I have received a couple of emails regarding the first measurable snowfalls of the past few years.  Here are the dates of the first snowfalls in 2011, 2010 & 2009 below (at WLFI in West Lafayette):

    It has looked foggy and hazy all day but I don’t think it snowed here at all. Today is the first day I have felt cold when outside. I broke down and wore a winter coat. tonight I feel like I am coming down with a cold :-(

    Chad, can you give any information on the likelihood of a “White Christmas” this year? I am hearing 2 completely different things.
    Thank you!
