Snow Showers In the Area with Light Accumulations In Our Northeast AlreadyDecember 10th, 2012 at 9:45 pm by Chad Evans 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):
