Flash Freeze Possible Tonight! The Latest On This System In My Blog...
We have had reports of thundersnow from New Albany, IN to Brooks, KY to E-town, KY and a bunch of places in the area. Thundersnow is defined as heavy snow with strikes of lightning and rumbles of thunder. It happens when we get "convective" snow like we saw tonight. Crazy stuff! Remember we are under a Winter Weather Advisory through 2 am.
The snow continues south of the river, with a lot of blowing snow north of the river.
The snow is just "blowing snow" mainly in Louisville now. That means not much is falling from the sky but it is blowing all over the place from the snow on the ground.
The snow continues from Shelbyville, KY as of 10:45 pm.
We have snow moderate snow continuing from Willisburg, KY to around New Haven, KY.
Greensburg, KY and Campbellsville, KY get ready for some moderate to heavy snow shortly.
The bigger problem tonight will be the rapidly falling temperatures. We are already well into the teens in the northern part of our area. Notice the 14 in Bedford, IN!
This means we will likely freeze tonight. We may see what is called a "flash freeze" tonight where the wet roads instaneously go to icy. Flash freeze conditions can be dangerous because roads can get extremely slick very fast. I cannot emphasize enough that travel tonight is not advised and we need to be careful driving in the morning. There will be icy conditions in a large part of the area.
