UpdateDecember 31st, 2012 at 4:46 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
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).
