3-5-20 ES Deicing: Discussing precip chances/ impacts into tomorrow + windy conditions. MG.

IN Update:

Here is a look at simulated radar from 12 PM today through 4 PM Friday.  Rain will be possible this afternoon across northern IN with the potential for even a few rumbles of thunder.  As we get past midnight, snow will be possible from NW IN into central/ southern IN.  As mentioned in the video, due to the warmth/ sunshine today, and the breezy conditions, minimal to no pavement impacts are anticipated.  Temperatures are not expected to drop too much below 32 into the overnight.  Please watch video for complete details.

Here is a look at the preferred snowfall totals through tomorrow.  As mentioned above and in the video, most of this snow will be realized on grassy/ elevated surfaces and not on pavement.  It may be worth monitoring lots around the South Bend area where a heavier pulse will be possible, but still do not anticipate pavement impacts there as well.  

Here is a look at the wind gust potential today at 4 PM.  Wind gust of 20 – 30 mph will be possible, especially across NW IN.

Here is a look at the sustained winds at 4 pm today.  Sustained winds of 10 – 15 mph will be possible.  

Winds will pick up this evening into tomorrow morning.  Here is a look at the wind gust potential by 7 AM.  Wind gust approaching 40 mph will be possible.  Especially across northern IN.  Advisories may be needed due to these winds.

Here is a look at the sustained winds by 7 AM tomorrow morning.  Sustained winds of 20 mph out of the NW will be possible with the strongest winds focused across northern IN.

A great weekend of weather is expected with no precipitation chances.  We are continuing to keep an eye on a system early next week for the next best chance for precipitation.  However, as we have seen with the last few systems, models have backed off on the impacts across IN.  Here is a snapshot of the European Model around 2 PM Monday.

Here is a look at the trend for precip amounts of the European model with this system early next week.  Models have continued to trend weaker and south with this system.  Please watch video for complete details regarding this.
