Let's take a look at how AdvanceTrak illustrates this system hour by hour. Fast forward to 6:00, this is when we can expect the precip to begin as sleet...


At 8:30 snow & sleet will be falling in Lawrence, Orange, and Washington counties of southern Indiana. More of a rain & freezing rain mix through Dubois, Perry, Crawford, Harrison, Floyd, and Jefferson counties at this point.  


By 10:30 everyone will be getting in on the action with the freezing rain & sleet including Louisville and all points north. Further south wamer air begins to push in causing more rain with a few rumbles of thunder possible.



After midnight the wintry mix lifts further north as a majority of us transition to plain rain...



The warmer air will eventually win out early tomorrow morning leaving behind some scattered rain showers and temperatures above freezing. Roads should be fine in Louisville, especially the ones that were treated. Our thaw continues as the storm departs but not before leaving behind a glaze of ice in places like Paoli, Seymour, Frankfort, and Madison...
