Complete, Final Summary Soon…….1-8″ of Snow Reported In the Viewing Area From the StormDecember 27th, 2012 at 12:49 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
I have gone through my email Inbox & every single report & measurement on this storm & will have a complete summary on it soon. The reports show anywhere from 1-8″ of snowfall from the storm in the viewing area.
There is a lot of air in the snow crystals with this snowfall. You always get settling with any snowfall event after a while, but our 4.0″ at WLFI-TV melted down to just 0.23″ of liquid. At Indianapolis International, the 7.3″ melted down to just 0.38″ of liquid. Today, our 4.0″ has settled & compacted to 3.3″ at 12:45 p.m. measurement as the air pockets are squeezed.
The 8.0″ at Crawfordsville melted down to just 0.49″ of liquid.
