Winter weather in Indiana, Feb. 21

Feb 21, 2013

A wintry mess – that’s how a Purdue expert is describing the weather system moving into the area Thursday night.

Associate Professor Mike Baldwin in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences says the Lafayette seems to be the transition line between the different types of precipitation.

He says snow, sleet and freezing rain are all possible with about three inches of accumulation generally north of Lafayette and an inch to the south.

Warmer air aloft is what’s causing the unpredictability. Baldwin says drizzle will continue Friday morning, possibly into the afternoon.
