Forecast Largely Unchanged Since Yesterday

December 24th, 2012 at 1:01 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

I still like around 3 to as much as 7″ across the viewing area.  Not going higher due to big severe weather outbreak in the southern & southeast U.S. with lots of heavy rainfall zapping some of the moisture.  Otherwise 5-10″ would likely fall in the viewing area.

Gusty winds of up to 40 mph towards the latter half of the system & thereafter will create substantial blowing & drifting snow with reduced visibilities.

I have backed off any mention of sleet, given the solidity of model soundings indicating any sleet would be near Indianapolis to Bloomington & southeastward as Canadian high will not allow any farther northwestward push, it appears.

This is still subject to change but that around 3 to 7″ looks good.

    Blizzard watches being posted to are south and southwest.

  18. mike in dayton says:

    Figures, things never shift our way.

  19. Lisa says:

    Merry Christmas, Mary Anne. I think we are “lucking out” on this one. Don’t get me wrong, I like winter and snow…just not the dangerous kind. The Blizzard of Jan. 2011 was enough for me! As I live in the country, being stranded is not much fun.

  20. mike in dayton says:

    Just watched Gregory on channel 6. He’s got Bloomington with 15″, and us with 4″. What a joke, I hope they get dry slotted

  22. Doug in Flora says:

    Nicole at WTHR-13 is forecasting 5″ to 9″ for us. Still think goddess Meteora is gonna lay a sneaker on us… :-(

  23. Guest says:

    No! :( Push it further north and not south :( I need my boyfriend to get out of Indy and fly out West :(

  24. Monster says:

    Model runs are all over the place does anyone know anything

  25. Crista says:
