Winter Storm in Progress. The Latest Snowfall Projections!

A Winter Storm Warning continues for all of North-Central Kentucky until 7 am ET.  Southern Indiana remains under a Winter Weather Advisory.  

Watch

So far, snowfall totals have been fairly light on the order of an inch or so in the Louisville metro area.  However, snowfall rates are beginning to increase and temperatures are starting to fall.

StormView HD Shows light to moderate snow filling in around the metro area with the heaviest preciptation occuring across our Southeastern Counties where the transition from rain to snow has been occuring now south of the Bluegrass Parkway. 

Further west, pockets of heavy snow can be seen developing between Tell City and Morgantown, KY.

The storm system extends well off to the south and west where snowfall rates of over 2 inches per hour have been reported recently across far Western Kentucky and into the Boot Heal of Missouri.

It is this area that will likely bring the most significant accumulations later on tonight.

So how much snow can we expect?

It looks like there will be a good sized band of between 4 to 8 inches of snow setting up along and on either side of the Bluegrass and Western Kentucky Parkways.  Locally, the snow could be even heavier, perhaps up to 10 inches in a few locations east of E-town and into the Bluegrass section of Kentucky.

For Louisville, 3 to 5 inches still seems to be on target with the heaviest accumulations occuring in the southern part of the county.  

As you head to the north, accumulations look to drop off rather quickly as dry air will limit accumulations across Southern Indiana with 3 or 4 inches possible along the Ohio River.  1 to 3 inches looks like a better bet for English to Madison with even less to the north.  Seymour and Bedford only look to pick up a dusting or so. 

Snowfall projection

Needless to say, roads look to be a mess out the door for much of the area.  

As always, when we are dealing with winter storms like this one, it is always a fluid situation and changes to the forecast can be expected.  I'll be monitoring the situation closely as the storm continues to move in and will have a full update tonight starting at 11:22 on WDRB News.
