Snowfall information

March 4th, 2013 at 11:10 am by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

Forecast 1-4″ over the weekend. Based on latest data will add a hair more  given slightly more southerly track.  So 2-6″ rather than 1-4″ will do across the viewing area.  Up to 6″ looks likely morocco to Rochester.  Areas along and north of u.s. 24 look to be in that 4-6″ range.  B Rather than 2-2.5″ I like more like 3″ for Lafayette area with 2-2.5″ in the south. Winter storm watch is in effectfrom kentland to stock well to Burlington and northeastward. One thing that hthat does not to be altered in any way are gusty winds during the snow of up to 37 mph in the viewing at times.  Worst of the condition will be Tuesday night to very early wednesday morning. I will have updates through the day and night.  The track is extremely important. I will have graphics up by early afternoon.

    Chad, thanks for including cities and towns. I know it is difficult to pinpoint rain/ice/snow lines this far out. It looks like a mess throughout much of the area.

    Chicago has now issued a WS Warning for Newton and Jasper Counties….Will indy nws follow suite? Is the system dropping even more south?

    Yea this thing looks like it favoring a more southerly track like the Euro was initially showing.

    The new gfs run does have the system dropping further south i think montgomery county will be under a winter storm watch soon.
