December 20th, 2012 at 3:08 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Gusty, strong cold front has passed with gusts as high as 56 mph near Thorntown with the shower band.

Now, cold air is howling in from the southwest & snow is gradually approaching from the southwest.

Band of highest winds is still in Illinois & is pivoting our way.  The snow, combined with the highest gusts & crashing temperatures will make for one rough evening & night to Friday morning!

    The last two runs of GFS is trying to take the next storm south and out to sea, the euro is taking a low pressure straight up thru Ohio (lake cutter) as Chad describes. I think the gfs might be out to lunch on this one or will come in line with euro model on later runs.

  11. Josh says:

    What is the euro showing for are area?

  12. Becky says:

    I Live in monticello, and work in Lafayette, so any info, will be appreciated

  13. Bill in C'ville says:

    The euro has a nice band of snow for us 4-6″ to be conservative. And the gfs has some flurries,LOL. Chad will be relying on old fashion forecasting for this one!!!
