Good evening, everyone. Light snow accumulations continue to cause BIG issues on the roads The forecast is playing out like a charm with a coating to 1″ of snow for many. Some locally higher amounts may show up in the east as snow showers continue tonight.
Even with just a light accumulation, most roads are snow and ice covered across central and eastern Kentucky. This has turned into a VERY HIGH IMPACT travel event. I’m going to be as blunt as I can be here: If the National Weather Service cannot issue a Winter Weather Advisory for such a high impact event, then they should just go ahead and scrap it. There is zero excuse for them not to, even reactively, issue a Winter Weather Advisory.
Regardless of me hitting a forecast or missing a forecast, EVERYTHING I do on this blog and on TV is to keep you guys safe and as informed as I possibly can. I can only hope that’s the mantra of every other meteorologist out there.
I really am restraining myself from an epic rant, right now, so I will just wrap this up with your tracking toys…
