Snowflake Pics & Morning UpdateJanuary 15th, 2014 at 9:19 am by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
GIANT Flakes Yesterday Like Tree Leaves Reported & Photographed………….
Thank you for the snow flake pics Autumn! Cali, looks like Autumn did get some pics of the flakes from yesterday.
She said the pics don’t do it justice, but they look incredibly large on here!
I was a beautiful site here in West Lafayette with the large flakes, but these were even larger in Warren County!
Minor Snowfall Yesterday & More Overnight-This Morning……..Up to 1″ Measured In the Viewing Area As of 9:15 a.m………
The large flakes caused up to 0.6″ of snow to rapidly accumulate yesterday. Be aware of some slick spots from snow lastnight & this morning.
I measured 0.2″ of snowfall of baking flour-type snowfall at West Lafayette. The highest total has been 1″ in northern Pulaski County with another two reports of 1″ from CoCoRaHS from far northwestern Pulaski. All other reports in the area are 0.5″ or less from overnight-this morning snowfall. Totals will remain at 1″ or less with perhaps a fluffy 1-1.5″ in the far north.
Flurries/snow showers continue, but will taper with time. The heaviest snow showers are currently in Montgomery, Boone & Tipton counties with visibility down to 0.75 mile in spots.
In these snow showers, accidents always seem to develop on 65. Be careful out there in your travels!!
Some partial clearing will occur, but it will be breezy & cold all day with highs only at 22-26.
In terms of this morning, we have a dusting at West Lafayette with 19.0 degrees & a brisk west wind dropping the wind chill to 4.
