Forecast Largely Unchanged Since YesterdayDecember 24th, 2012 at 1:01 pm by Chad Evans 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.
