Winter Storm Warning

ORIGINAL ENTRY at 11:40 AM

During the major Midwest ice storm of Monday-Tuesday, our temperatures started above freezing and climbed to nearly 40. So, we only got rain.

The NWS is promising significant snowfall Saturday and Sunday; currently giving us hope for at least 3 to 5 inches. The most intense snowfall is expected between midnight and 7am Sunday.

UPDATE at 4:30 PM

Official NWS forecast page for Fort Wayne / Allen County now says:

Saturday: Periods of snow, mainly after 9am. High near 30. East wind around 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

Saturday Night: Periods of snow with areas of blowing snow. The snow could be heavy at times. Low around 21. Blustery, with a northeast wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 8 to 12 inches possible.

Sunday: Periods of snow with areas of blowing snow, mainly before 10am. The snow could be heavy at times. High near 26. Blustery, with a north wind around 20 mph, with gusts as high as 35 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%.

Here's the snow portion of the NWS hourly forecast graph:

They're predicting 15.3" of snow in a 36 hour period. That would be totally awesome!!

UPDATE at 2AM 12-15

Here's the latest hourly forecast graph for snow. They've backed down the forecast a bit, particularly for the overnight Sat-Sun period, to a total of 13.7" in a 36 hour period. That would still be awesome!!
