I did receive a question about rumors of another big cold wave in February.  In my winter outlook, I did bring a cold wave in with temperatures to -7 in West Lafayette (some places -15) in February.  In January I brought -13 into West Lafayette & -20 north & northeast of West Lafayette.  I forecasted the lowest temperature for March at 15.


The wind may stay at 10-15 mph, but be aware of some areas of dense fog as the rain pull away later tonight.  Any fog will tend to lift mid-morning with temperatures falling from 40 in the morning to near 32 by late afternoon.

A few snow showers & flurries are possible with cloudy skies & afternoon southwest to west winds at 20-35 mph.

After 24 tomorrow night, Sunday looks pretty good with sunshine & highs near 46.  However, winds may gust to 33 mph at times from the south & southwest & 40 mph Sunday night (lows near 37).

I will cool off again with 20s Wednesday & the cold lingering into next weekend with some daily highs only in the 18-24 range.

Snow is possible Monday night-Tuesday night with some minor accumulations (unless clipper blows up farther west like two others that have passed).

More snow is possible Friday with the potential of some minor accumulations.

    Cathy, it is Chad’s job to look ahead at the weather patterns and possibilities. Of course he is looking at it. :)

    Not as cold as last week for awhile…I hope. This last cold spell hit a lot of folks in the wallet who couldn’t afford it to begin with.
