Outlook Now to Late February

February 4th, 2013 at 9:42 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog


Clipper will pass Tuesday with some snow showers, mainly in our northeastern areas.  There 1″ or less may accumulate in places, while the rest of the area see little to nothing.  Winds will be gusty from the southwest & west up to 30 mph with highs largely in the 30s.  Wednesday looks partly cloudy with highs largely in the 30s.

Cold front will pass Thursday with a wave of some showers with temperatures climbing to near 43, then falling later in the day.

Storm system with lots of wind & widespread rainfall (right now 0.50-1″ of rainfall) & some thunder will arrive Sunday & exit by Monday morning.  After highs in the 50s Sunday & lows in the middle 40s Sunday night, we will fall Monday after a morning high in the middle 40s.  Monday night lows will drop into the lower to middle 20s.

Highs Tuesday looks to be in the middle 30s with lows in the middle to upper teens.


Need to watch next Wednesday-Thursday for snow.  Looks like it may begin as rain/snow mix & transition to snow with accumulation possible.  Behind it, ARCTIC AIR will roar in with highs only in the teens to around 20 & lows near 0.

This storm is the best potential of significant accumulating snowfall (at least the way it looks right now) to February 26 & perhaps the month of February.

A clipper around February 16-17 & another around February 19 may bring some minor-accumulating snowfall to the area on the order of 0.5-2″ (at least the way it looks right now).  It will stay quite cold up to February 22 with highs in the teens & 20s, though there are signs of a big spring-like warm-up to end February.

    Mad Man….thank you SOO much for serving our country! Hats are off to you my friend! I have been a faithful blogger for a long time and I know you are “real” about the weather. I also know Jim personally and know he is a good guy. You can just tell whether ppl on here are sincere if they just get on to harass. Not so our group right now. Kudos to you!!

    (repost from last blog post)
    Some may not see this since there is a new post by Chad. In 1963 my daughter was born on Feb 24th…guess what…basketball sectional tourney time….snowstorm you could count on. Roads closed, nurses worked a double shift, lots of babies born that night (low pressure system). SIX of her first NINE b’days the roads were closed! I have one pic of 12 inches snow on the ground on Feb 24th. Hang in there :-)

    Right on mad man. Thanks for fighting so we can live and be free. Your the reason I can have my own opinion when I blog. My opinion is that this winter blows. I am hoping for early spring. If its not going to snow it might as well just be warm. But if it’s going to snow bring it on.

  7. Crista says:

    Ditto to Monster! If no snow…lets be done with it!!!!

    MadMan,our own Federal Government is taking away more of our freedoms than anything you fought for in the Middle East.

    Mary Anne- From 8am on Feb. 23, 1963 to 8am Feb. 24, 8 inches of snow fell at West Lafayette. On Feb. 26, 1963 the temp. fell to 23 below at WL. There was 10 inches of snow on the ground March 1 and then the rains came. 1.60 inches of rain fell at West Lafayette from March 3-5 and 10 inches of snow melted in 3 days. There was some street flooding at Lafayette. The snow is not over Crista. It will snow in March.

    MA in Rem, I was just thinking today while I was out and about that basketball sectionals are just right around the corner and you can almost count on some kind of snow during this time frame. As my kids are now grown and have lil ones of their own, I have lost track of most high school sport events. But I do remember that sectionals are always in February. I hope that Chad can give us a little bit of an update each day to see how the models and things are holding up on that possible snow event. And anyone else who is good at reading models if they can tell us more too..Madman, Thank You, for your unselfish act in serving our country near and afar. Thank you for helping keeping us safe here at home. Thank You for all you have sacrificed. And to all the rest of the bloggers, Thank You for being here and helping out as you post what is going on in your neck of the woods. Hope everyone has a blessed day! Thank You Chad for your dedication to us as well..looking forward to all the updates on this possible next coming event. For the snow lovers, I do hope its “THE BIG ONE”, better late then never.

  17. Jim says:

    Thank you Val well put.
