This is obviously a few days out, so a lot can and will change, but I wanted to update with some of the new model runs as to timing. Some of the models are more impressive in the snow accumulation potential. We will not put out a totals forecast yet (I did show model examples earlier this morning to show variety of options from those runs, but don’t want to confuse you with ever changing numbers from run to run).
WAVE #1 (THU. PM – FRI. AM): So far this still looks to be the weaker of the 2 waves. Right now, models indicate an area of light snow moving in Thursday evening, and lasting through the morning on Friday. There may even be a wintry mix involved as well, so that will make snowfall projections for this round tricky. Here are looks at what the weather may look like by midnight Thursday night and for the morning commute Friday. There is a chance that some locations could see a few inches of snow by Friday morning.
WAVE #2 (FRIDAY AFTERNOON / NIGHT): Right now, this looks to be the stronger of the 2 waves that may have higher chances of snow accumulation. Colder air will push farther south along the Ohio River, which combined with more energy and moisture, could set up the snow bands here in central and southern Indiana. The snow should wind down late Friday night.
WAVE #3 (SUNDAY NIGHT / MONDAY MORNING): Just want to let you know of the potential for more winter weather, but way too early to focus on this right now.
Again, I think it is a bit early to assign number to our forecast, but will continue to update as things develop in the next 24 – 36 hours.
