Tracking snow for the weekend

Adjust Comment Print

Expect a low near 16° tonight, with winds around 5-10mph. Skies should begin to clear out and will be mostly clear. Be sure to grab your winter coat if you're heading out tonight!

Tomorrow: Temperatures will warm to just at freezing during the day tomorrow.

Outlook for Saturday to Monday: Saturday cold, although mainly sunny with easing winds.

The mountains, of course, will have a much better chance of seeing this precipitation in the form of snow, but chances for any precipitation at all remain limited through Friday.

Snow showers will arrive after midnight EST Saturday and will travel southeast over the viewing area through Saturday morning. Accumulation is not expected with this wave of light snowfall, but we are tracking a system for the weekend that could potentially bring minor snow accumulations to Greater Lafayette.

The snow on Saturday will be linked to an area of low pressure forming along an old frontal system that is well offshore.

The next clipper-producing accumulating snow looks to occur Monday night, followed by a surge of arctic-source air that will make it hard for temperatures to rise very far into the 20s Tuesday. Overall a chilly and potentially snowy week ahead is in store!
