Trend since Friday has been a more southerly track & much slower arrival.  Track seems to have settled, but timing continues to slow every slightly.

A bit more southerly track still looks good, that has not changed.  It has slowed down some.


Precipitation will move up from south to north, beginning as wintry mix.  Snow, sleet &/or freezing rain in the cards, looking at Skew-Ts & wedge of dry, dry, cold air bleeding in via east & east-northeast winds courtesy of Ontario & New England surface high.  Some minor accumulations of snow, sleet &/or freezing rain are possible mainly north of I-74 in the morning (to afternoon in north).  Low temperatures will run 27-32 with a quick drop this evening, then temperatures will tend to level off, perhaps rise a bit later tonight.  They may fall a hair as precipitation begins early Tuesday morning due to evaporative cooling.

Trend will be for a transition to largely rainfall across the area, though, as temperatures climb to 34-37.


Trend will be for rain to transition to more snow from northwest to southeast in the viewing area as temperatures cool to 31-34.


Periodic snow is a good bet with minor accumulations with highs of 32-34.


Periodic snow is likely with minor accumulations with lows of 27-29.


Periodic snow will transition to more in the way of snow showers with highs of 30-33.

Total accumulations by Thursday look to be largely 1-3″ with 3-5″ in the north in parts of Newton, Jasper, Pulaski & Fulton counties.

Winds will periodically gust to 35 mph for this duration, generally from west-southwest, then west to northwest.

Even Friday-Saturday, scattered flurries & snow showers are likely with gusty northwest winds.

    Good Evening everyone! I hope that everyone had the opportunity to enjoys sunshine. When I got home this evening my weather band was going off and to my not so surprise the national weather service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for many counties including mine ( Fountain ) for freezing rain and sleet which is in effect from 4am to 10am. So far what I have read only a 1/10 of an inch of ice accumulations. Even tho that isn’t much of accumulation, that is more then plenty to cause road hazards. I hope that each of you take your time and get to your destination safely. Another blogger ( don’t remember who it was) also asked for you to be considerate of the snow plow drivers as they are out there to get the roads cleared up and treated to make your journey as safe as they can. My husband too is a snow plow driver for the state, he has encountered many close calls by people getting in a big hurry. Chad I look forward to your updates as you are able to. And I hope to get my totals and maybe a few pics sent to you.

  35. charlene says:

    Monster can you please post the link? Is it ice still or snow now too?

  36. charlene says:

    Val…that was Ch n ffort..he always posts about road conditions on here..he is extremely helpful to me..my hubby travels to Frankfort to work and even though Lafayette is not far from Frankfort it can be quite a difference in weather..winter spring and summer severe…thakks Ch n ffort ;)

  37. Teri says:

    Okay on a serious note, I pray all can get along on this blog. I have been a weather watcher for many years. Name calling and cursing is uncalled for. I hope all stay safe and have fun weather watching..Be kind to each other..PLEASE! And don’t forget to thank Chad for all he does for us! We are very blessed to have him. Night all stay safe and this is for the “Stooges”


  38. Val says:

    Thank you Charlene, I couldn’t remember who it was that was also a snow plow driver. And I am glad he is able to assist you and your family for travel. Your right, even tho the distance isn’t that far, it can be a big difference in weather precipitation. And thank you Ch n ffort for the reminder as well.

  39. Crista says:

    I saw robins in my front yard and sandhill cranes heading North. Red winged blackbirds cant be far behind. I know the weather here has been frustrating…but the swearing we could do without. I agree.I hear enough of that walking through Wal Mart. (Stay safe all.)

  40. Jim says:
