I have measured 0.4″ of snowfall as of 4:15 p.m. at WLFI.  It has not accumulated on the roads with a coating of slush on cars.  The 0.4″ is atop the snow pack, snowboard & trees.  The heaviest totals have run from Peru to near Burnettsville with up to 0.7″  Also, parts of Newton & Benton counties have received 0.7″ as of 4:15 p.m.

A narrow band of heavy snow of 1″ per hour is sitting just south of our viewing area, running from southern Parke to central & southern Putnam & southern Hendricks counties.  We will watch to see if these banding features begin to develop this evening.  Evidence of the frontogenic banding is occurring with this band & bands that have produced 2″ of accumulation in Illinois.

Band running from northeast Indianapolis to near New Castle has received up to 1.5″.

Winds are still brisk & temperature is currently 32.2 degrees at WLFI.

Lowered amounts a hair to 1-3″ with isolated +3″ amount in far south.  However, this is a tick upward in the far north, where already near 1″ has fallen (had less than 1″ before).

    Snowfall here unimpressive. Temperature was 36 or higher all day. Currently 34; local attitudes: “Much ado about nothing”.

    When will the heavier bands be here? I’m in the snow removal business. Wish I knew if we were getting 2″+ for sure.
