Bottom Line1

We can expect some pockets of heavy snow. This is still an evolving forecast and the exact track of the low may shift slightly between now and tomorrow…but here is a preliminary forecast.  We KNOW we will see our highest totals northwest of Indy where we’ll have more lake enhancement.  Pockets of ~5″ will be common around Kokomo, Marion & Lafayette.  Lesser amounts will be seen well southeast of Indy where it’ll take a little longer to change over from rain to snow.

LS Snow Accumulation

Nonetheless, we will ALL have some accumulation in time for the Thursday AM commute. Snow will taper off by Thursday afternoon.
