Everything looks good with forecast per new data this morning.  Snow and sleet to freezing rain to rain and only brief bit of snow at the end with Thursday through Friday storm.  Looks like windy conditions will accompany storm.  Minor snow and decent ice accumulation are possible before changeover to rain as temps rise from 26 to 36 back to 28 during storm.   New updates will continue.

    Thank you for the update Chad! Is pretty out this morning, sun is shining and there are tiny, sparkling, snow flakes falling, looks like glitter floating in the air:)

  2. Jim says:

    How much snow before ice Chad?

  3. mad man from afghanistan says:

    Jim probably half inch given the trend.

  4. Teri says:

    The models are looking ominous, and this is still several days out! Ice…eekk!

  5. Tony Jaeger says:

    Minor snow and decent accumulation are possible …………What does that mean?

  6. Bud says:

    Just looking at four different models and as of now they are consistent. Center of storm passing to our northwest keeping us south of the 540 line and more in the warmer air when the heaviest precipitation passes through. Looks like a little of everything with this one. Will see if this trend holds and Chad agrees with his next update.

  7. Teri says:

    Nice to see you on here Bud:)And I agree with what you posted! I am concerned about freezing rain though.

  8. Jim says:

    Skilling has the line dipping south a little more saying s
    Snow ice line now Lafayette. Lafayette north snow longer. Up to 4-5 inch then ice Chad I’m sure chad will see this.

  9. Chad Evans says:

    I have had questions about amounts of snow and ice. This is nearly a week out so it is way too early to talk exact amounts given so many precip types. Should be able to firm up some numbers with time.

  10. Chad Evans says:

    I say this because we are so close to the edge of ice snow and rain and a mix of all. Any shift in this storm and the amounts of everything will be vastly different. To try to pinpoint that to a t right now is a set up for flip flopping

    Hi Teri……Always nice to hear a shout out from my “neighbor”.

  14. Jim says:

    Hey rb that’s a update not joke.

  15. rb says:

    Jim/Moe..I would appreciate if you would stop mentioning me in your posts. I don’t mention you in mine. I find it to be antagonizing on your part! I come to this blog for information, I stated my opinion along with others now please leave it be!

  16. rb says:

    Thank you!

  17. Jim says:

    Ok rb no problem please refrain from telling ny brother bloggers that we are jokesters I find that quite annoying. Thanks

  18. Jim says:

    And as all can see we are not joking we are banding together to face this storm together. Madman maybe you should let everyone know the real meaning of FTP means. I’m sure some might think that’s a joke.

  19. Jim says:

    Now that being said I’m here to have fun joke and be serious. I love the weather so for all it’s worth I will continue to do that. As for anyone wanting to blog and read this for weather info continue to do so. It’s a great blog. Now also I would at this time apologize to rb if I offended him . Hopefully any info I can provide will help him and others as so needed.

    The stores were all real busy yesterday..you would think they are preparing for an ice storm or something. I hope we don’t get too much icing on this upcoming weekend. It looks absolutely beautiful outside today..my poor little doggy thought it was spring with that sun shining ..needless tk say he went out and came right back in. Thanks Chad and all of you for keeping this stooge up to date on the weather. ;)
