Miss Opportunity

No doubt today would have been a two hour delay for area schools. Slick snow packed roads that are mainly untreated make for easy delay calls early in the season. Watch for a continued light snow accumulating to around an inch before tapering off by evening.

While not looking to make ice storm criteria, there could be some ice accumulations Wednesday into Thursday. Small amount of ice with moderate winds gusting more than 20 MPH could cause some downed trees and power lines. Travel will be slow during this time frame. Thursday evening into Christmas Day should see a change over to all rain before going back to snow for the weekend.

I want to give a plug tor Chad Evans and his weather blog. Chad is the on air meteorologist at WLFI (Channel 18) in Lafayette. He has some great detailed analysis of upcoming weather. Visit him here - http://blogs.wlfi.com/category/chads-wlfi-weather-blog/

Below has to be one of the ugliest low tracks I have seen in quite a while. The warm air from the gulf will be brought up giving us the wintry mix and rain. Bah Humbug!
