Today's Blog: **A Big Mess For Some Tonight**
From Jude Redfield...
We are going to have a big problem for parts of Kentuckiana tonight!!! Follow our future radar below. I think from Louisville to E-Town looks to be in a zone where that temp stays around or below freezing for the entire event meaning the better chance for more widespread hazards. The farther south you travel from E-Town down into the southern third of Kentuckiana the better chance we have at seeing temps barely above freezing.
**THE BOTTOM LINE** traveling from Louisville south tonight will mean ENTER WITH CAUTION!!!
While this will not be a MAJOR WINTER STORM...this will be a MAJOR PROBLEM for areas that don't see treated roads or sidewalks late tonight.
In terms of accumulation...Louy Metro...it looks as if we will see half snow and half ice for this event. Some light accumulations of snow will be possible with a glazing of ice likely. As you go south of E-Town snow does not seem to be an option. The areas to really pay attention to tonight will be along the parkways as that will essentially be where the freezing line sets up. This will waver by some degree so you will want to keep checking in with the outlook as we will go to more of a nowcast for the parkway locations. THE TEMPS ARE CRUCIAL in those locations as we could be seeing more cold rain as opposed to more of an icy set up.
At this point the NWS does not have a winter weather advisory for areas north of E-Town. Looking at the data I feel weather conditions will warrant an advisory situation of some sort. Stay tuned during the day and evening for the latest updates. You can follow me on facebook and twitter as well. Jude Redfield Facebook Jude Redfield Twitter
