Snowfall projected to end Tuesday

The worst has passed through Clay County, according to an area meteorologist.

WTHI News 10 Meteorologist David Wire told The Brazil Times Monday morning residents will still see some snowfall through Tuesday, but it won't be as significant as Monday.

"The heaviest snow has already happened," Wire said.

Clay County was one of several counties in the central portion of Indiana that was placed under a Winter Storm Warning Sunday afternoon, which was expected to conclude Monday evening.

"The reason that will be allowed to expire is the snow will taper off," Wire said.

"While it will not be as windy as it was last week, we are still expecting wind gusts of 20-25 mph (through Tuesday)."

Wire said the storm currently wreaking havoc in Clay County arrived in the area Sunday evening. He said the front hit Vincennes at approximately 4 p.m., and moved northward.

He added Clay County has received approximately 4-5 inches of new snow, bringing the total number close to 7 inches.

"If you add what we had last week and add what we have now, that puts us at the 7-inch mark," he said.

Wire said he expected at least another inch of snowfall into Tuesday, and blowing and drifting of snow could cause problems on roads.

"We've still got another day of dealing with this," he said.

"But the snowfall won't be as bad."

He added the area is above average in regard to total snowfall so far this year.

"It reminds me of the 1980s, when you actually had winter," Wire said.

According to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis, there is a 20-percent chance of snow showers Tuesday, but no additional snow is in the forecast for the remainder of the week.
