Episode Narrative A potent Alberta Clipper brought a quick burst of moderate to occasionally heavy snow along a thin swath less than 50 miles wide across southern Indiana. While this system was moisture starved, lift associated with the nose of a strong jet overcame the limited moisture supply and led to a 3 to 5 hour period of snow. This resulted in 2 to locally over 5 inches of snowfall in extreme southern Indiana. The heaviest snow fell along and just north of Interstate 64. Due to surface temperatures just above freezing, much more snow accumulated on elevated surfaces as compared to the roadways.
Event Narrative CoCoRaHS observers reported 3 to 3.5 inches of snow across Clark County.
