More snow on the way

Tuesday, January 27, 2009

According to WTWO News Channel 2 morning weather person Alexis King, the area should expect at least another 2-4 inches of snow as the current wintery system slides through.

"It depends on how it rolls through," King added.

Although the National Weather Service in Indianapolis called for periods of snow through Thursday, King said she believes the current system should be out of the area by Wednesday afternoon.

King said 4-6 inches of snow could be on the ground, however, after the system goes through.

She said another system will head through the area beginning Thursday and Clay County residents can expect cold temperatures through the weekend. However, she doesn't anticipate any snow with that system.

King said areas south of Clay County could see up to 8 inches of snow, however.

"We're sort of to the north of where the storm is converging," she said.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis issued a winter weather advisory for Clay County and surrounding counties that will remain in effect until noon Wednesday.

The service called for periods of snow Tuesday with snow accumulation of 1-2 inches. The temperature was expected to reach the mid 20s and the chance of snow was 90 percent.

The service called for approximately 2 inches of more snow Tuesday evening with an anticipated low of 16 degrees.

On the way into Terre Haute this morning, all I saw were people "pushing" the envelope. I just wish stupid was always painful.

I would like to share a scientific observation" Snow attracts idiots. I know this to be a fact because I had people following me a foot off my rear bumper when there was absolutely no way they could stop if they had to. They were driving like it was a sunny day at high noon in August.

Ventuno,

I agree! Some people drive like idiots. I don't know how many people went flying around me when I was on my way to Terre Haute. A lot of them were driving 4WD vehicles, so I guess they think that makes it easier for them to stop. I also have a 4WD & if there's ice under this snow, you are not going to stop any faster than any other vehicle.
