Widespread Snow……Heaviest South & Southeast of Lafayette for Past 1-2 HoursFebruary 27th, 2013 at 4:34 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
I have just 0.2″ of slush on the snowboard, though it has been snowing since 11 a.m. with visibility estimated generally at 2-3 miles.
Temperature is holding at 33.9, which is causing lack of any accumulation on the ground, but a few elevated surfaces have a slush. Late February sun angle (insolation) is also preventing efficient accumulation.
It has been snowing heavily at times south & southeast of Lafayette at times for the past 1-2 hours with lighter snows in a band from Pine Village through Lafayette to Monticello & Rochester. Moderate snow is occuring in parts of Newton & Jasper counties.
Right now the better-accumulating snows are occurring southeast of here & northwest of the heart of the viewing area.
Dropped 3″ & keeping forecast totals at 1″ to 2″. 3″ seems too high for the remainder of this given the fact that it has been snowing since 9 a.m. in places & not much has accumulated with temperatures above 32.
Roads tonight may get slick areas with some slush, given low temperatures around 30.
