12-10-19 Tovar Indy/Kokomo PM: Discussing light snow risk potential into Wednesday. K.

Good afternoon! Just to reiterate what we mentioned this morning, we still are anticipating a quick moving pulse of light snow showers tomorrow morning into the afternoon as noted below. Timing right now being roughly from 9am-3pmET from west to east. The main line looks to push through Rensselaer, Lafayette, Kokomo, Tipton to Muncie. It's not impossible for this to trend a county or so south: We anticipate this could produce a quick coating (0.5" at best mainly on grassy/elevated surfaces - isolated) on surfaces as temps look to be in the upper teens to lower 20s during the event.…

A poleward shift of the jet is favored in week 2 which favors more mild Pacific air into the Eastern US.…

Today's video: https://vimeo.com/377781840 PDF report (click link to the right to open in HD): 12-6-19 Long-range analysis Key Points: Storm system early next week brings the next best chance of snow for the Northern Plains and rain in the TN Valley.
