Winter Storm : 12"-18" of snow on the way !!!!!!!
« on: Jan 30, 2011, 04:25 AM »
Accuweather.com is calling for 12"-18" of snow from monday night to tuesday evening  :o  :o  :o  :o , this is the Wabash area, not sure how much of state will be affected. Calling for lows around 1* with wind chill -15* due to 20-25 mph winds. Not sure what it will do for the ice or fishing, but that's the least of my worries; I got to drive to Warsaw for work 3rd shift  :-\ . Just a heads up to be prepared.

Thanks for heads up. Just checked the forecast for here in Central Iowa and it looks like we'll get hit a day before you guys. Friday it was 40 + degrees and everyone was talking Spring...NO!!!Haven't fished enough. ;D

I hate that 4 letter work. It has messed up my fishing now for 3 weeks. Not to worry, 6 more weeks of fishing hard water.

Anyone want to trade snow for ice? Central Indiana is suppose to get a "wintry mix" of snow and ice. Where I am they are calling for more ice and then starting on Thursday getting cold. If I could just get my boss to call off school early then I cold make it to the lake in time to get snowed/ iced in. A 20lb propane container and enough bait for several days sounds good to me!

The news has said a possible 12-18" snow between Tuesday and Wednesday. BUT they're still not sure if it's going to hit us yet. They said one a small shift of the storm and we could get very little snow. So once again we might as well wait till Tuesday and look out the front door to see what's actually going on.

Heres what they are saying for Porter County:
 BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...

A BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

* TIMING... HEAVY SNOWFALL WILL SPREAD NORTHEASTWARD ACROSS THE AREA MIDDAY TUESDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. AS THE SNOWFALL FROM THE STORM SYSTEM STARTS TO WIND DOWN DURING WEDNESDAY MORNING AND EARLY AFTERNOON... LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL HAVE DEVELOPED ON THE ILLINOIS SIDE OF THE LAKE. INCREASINGLY HEAVY AND MORE CONCENTRATED LAKE EFFECT SNOW WILL SHIFT INTO FAR NORTHWEST INDIANA DURING WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND PERSIST INTO WEDNESDAY EVENING BEFORE SHIFTING FURTHER OFF TO THE EAST INTO SOUTHWEST LOWER MICHIGAN AND NORTH CENTRAL INDIANA.

* ACCUMULATIONS... TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS FROM MONDAY MORNING THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN EXCESS OF 12 INCHES IN NORTH CENTRAL ILLINOIS... AND IN EXCESS OF 18 INCHES OVER NORTHEAST AND EAST CENTRAL ILLINOIS... AS WELL AS NORTHWEST INDIANA. LOCAL AMOUNTS IN EXCESS OF 24 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE IN FAR NORTHWEST INDIANA... DEPENDING ON EXACTLY WHERE THE LAKE EFFECT SNOW BAND SETS UP AND HOW PERSISTENT IT IS OVER ANY ONE LOCATION.

* HAZARDS... BLIZZARD CONDITIONS WITH CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW AND FREQUENT WHITE OUT CONDITIONS.

* IMPACTS... NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TRAVEL CONDITIONS AS SNOW WILL BE ACCUMULATING AT A RAPID RATE DURING THE PEAK OF THE SNOW STORM TUESDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT. HEAVY LAKE EFFECT SNOW IN NORTHWEST INDIANA LATER WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY EVENING WILL CONTINUE TO SNARL TRAVEL THERE.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A BLIZZARD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FALLING AND/OR BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND EXTREMELY POOR VISIBILITIES. THIS CAN LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AND MAKE TRAVEL VERY DANGEROUS

A day without fishing is a day wasted.

Channel 13 in Indy says 1 and a half inches of "ICE". Oh :%$#!: :%$#!:! Went without power for 13 days during the last ice storm. :%$#!: Don't want to do that again. Hope for snow over all that ice. Really makes a mess of everything.

Did not see anywhere in Dakota's report from the NWS about not being able to fish. I think we need to go to YouTube and look up how to build an igloo on the water.

I would be happy to trade some ice from central Indiana for a little of your snow up north.

Others go to the store to stock up on things. I need to pick up some propane for the Buddy Heater just in case.

Also, we only have one more day built in for snow at school then there goes another summer of not knowing when school will let out.
