Rain Slowly Transitioning to Periodic Snow for the Viewing Area Now-Overnight……..Rumble of Thunder PossibleFebruary 26th, 2013 at 6:38 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
It has been a record-breaking February for snowfall in the southern Plains. This will go down as the snowiest February on record for many areas with some data sets back to 1880.
Here, rain is gradually transitioning to snow & periodic snow will be likely overnight-early Thursday morning. It has been snowing at Morocco, Rensselaer, Kentland, Remington, Winamac & Rochester. Noticed heavier precip echoes in Fulton County, which is probably helping to pull some of the colder air down from upstairs to change rain to snow.
I would not totally rule out a rumble of thunder tonight with any snow showers as the actual center of the upper low passes just west of us. This morning we had thunder sleet in Carroll & Cass counties reported.
It will not be quite so gusty as the upper low progresses through tonight, but as snow pivots around it into our area tomorrow, winds will tend to increase with gusts to 30, even 32 mph by tomorrow evening.
