System Merger Farther West….Winter Storm Warning Now For Southern Indiana….New Years Snowfall Information

December 28th, 2012 at 3:23 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Total accumulations of around 1″ to as much as 2.3″ are likely when adding up what has fallen today & what will fall tonight-tomorrow.  This include the accumulation in our northwest counties this morning, the wave of snowfall tonight-Saturday morning & some lake effect snow showers scattered about mainly in our northeast tomorrow, though at least some flurries & snow showers may dot the area at times.

Winds will pick up tomorrow morning-afternoon with northerly gusts as high as 25, perhaps 28 mph.  Some blowing & drifting is possible, but with highs near 32, there will be melting.  So, it will not be a dry, powdery snow that is easily blown.

System near New Years is accelerating, so it will likely bring snowfall as early as New Years Eve evening-night to New Years Day, rather than New Years Day to the day after.  1.5-6″ looks like a good preliminary forecast for our area with the best chance of 6″ down towards Kingman, Waveland, Crawfordsville, Ladoga & Lebanon.
