Widespread Snow……Heaviest South & Southeast of Lafayette for Past 1-2 Hours

February 27th, 2013 at 4:34 pm by 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.

    Chad..with the roads just being wet with the light snow do you think temps are going to drop enough tonight to cause slick roads in the morning? Just curious. Thanks for the update too ;)

    Snowed most of the day here in Remington leaving no accumulation until dark. I just got home from a meeting to find I needed to clean off the car’s windows before starting for home. Streets, including #24 are covered, traffic was moving slowly. I am saying an inch of snow has fallen. Temp dropped from 33* all day to 31* near dark which is where it is sitting right now. Gauge is showing .13 inch liquid.
