Midday update... Sleet falling again in Louisville
With some sleet falling in downtown Louisville, I just wanted to quickly update you on what we are seeing around the area. There is no question that the severe weather will be the bigger story in the next 7 days, but we still have to get through an ugly Wednesday first.
For a full look at the severe weather threat over the next 7 days, please view my previous blog entry...
Well we probably have another 2-3 hours where we could continue to see some snow or sleet across parts of the area. Tempertures in Louisville have dipped into the upper 30s with many areas north of the river cold enough to support all snow now.
Notice some of the lower 30s just north of the river. On a day like today, about 37 is is cold enough to support all snow and that is what we are seeing now in many areas north of the river.
Radar indicates snow showers and light snow from the Ohio River north. Remember a few slick spots on elevated surfaces is possible.
Louisville is showing a sleet/snow mix right now and that should continue here for a few more hours.
The bottom line is we have about 2 to 3 hours more of precipitation chances. Louisville will continue to see a sleet/snow mix. Not road concerns are anticipated. North of the Ohio river more snow than anything will continue for a few hours more. A small accumulation on the grassy surfaces could occur in areas like North Vernon, IN to Seymour, IN to Bedford, IN and maybe a county south. By late in the afternoon the system will be departing and drying conditions will settle in.
