Looks like we are trying to go straight into winter mode for the weather. The temp right now is the highest it is expected to get for the entire week. We do have a freeze warning out for tonight, so if you have plants outside, it is time to bring them in. We also could see the dreaded four letter s-word for the first time of the season tonight into tomorrow morning, though no accumulation is expected.

Should help kill off the growing West Nile Virus squito threat in the area.

interesting info here http://www.cdc.gov/westnile/statsMaps/fina...Data/index.html

the numbers go up and down with seemingly no pattern. I figured last year would have been very low due to the drought like conditions we had. Suprisingly, last year was very high.

Snowed in Westville this morning, and now the sun is out like if nothing ever happened.

I drained my hoses on Tuesday morning. So depressing.

Cut the grass for the final time, and stowed the mower for the season. Still have a few tomatoes to harvest though.

Sklilling has City predicted for 3.93 inches of rain over the next 24-36 hours. Let's just be happy it isn't 28 degrees outside.

Playing amatuer forecaster, I think the 5-9 inch projection for us is going to be very wrong as long as the wind directions being predicted are accurate. We are going to go from a west wind to a north wind as the day goes by. That will get us into a couple of bands. The winds are supposed to hold today and tonight at straight north, which probably means the snow band forecasts are aimed about 20 miles too far East. I'd be more worried if I were Valpo, Portage, Gary etc. If the winds hold up, I think we end up in the 1-3 inch range.

Even if we do get a half foot of snow tomorrow, it will all be gone this weekend with temps in the 60s.

LaPorte was a mess this morning! What a harrowing drive in to work. There was at least six inches on my car this morning, maybe more. And LP schools closed. First they had a two-hour delay, then decided to close.

Already stopped snowing in Westville with maybe an inch or two on the ground. Looks like all the action was east of me today.

Over a foot of lake effect snow fell overnight just 60 miles from downtown Chicago. Persistent heavy snow piled up within a narrow corridor in Berrien and LaPorte Counties, where 14" of new snow accumulation was reported at St. Joseph, Michigan.

The snow is affecting travel in area. At 8:50AM, Eastbound Interstate 94 is at a standstill near Stevensville, Michigan due to snow, limited visibility and several weather related accidents.

A Lake Effect Snow Warning remains in effect until 1PM EST for LaPorte and Berrien Counties.

A Lake Effect Snow Advisory is in effect until 1PM EST for St. Joseph (IN), Porter and Jasper Counties.

Here are a few of the latest snowfall reports as of 8:30AM:


14.0" St. Joseph, MI

13.0" Stevensville, MI (3mi NNE)

12.0" Stevensville, MI

9.0" Kingsbury, IN

8.0" Berrien Springs, MI

7.5" Wanahah, IN

7.4" La Porte, IN (1.6mi SW)

7.0" Kingsford Heights, IN

6.0" La Porte, IN (1.3mi SSW)

From ALCO

We're waiting on the Hazardous Weather Outlook for this weather zone. The Chicago Weather office has indicated it expects a significant snow event for Porter County and eastern Lake County.
It looks like LaPorte County will easily see more than seven inches of snow out of this and it could be a lot more in localized areas.

Looks like the makings of an early winter weather wallop around these parts. One can only guess what January and February may eventually look like.
