Good Monday, everyone. A wintry mess is working across Kentucky as we begin another work week. Freezing rain, sleet, snow and rain are all blanketing the bluegrass state, combining with a frozen ground to produce icy travel conditions for many.
Even if temps are above freezing where you live, the precipitation is falling on a ground that is below freezing. Roads, sidewalks and parking lots can all feature quite a bit of ice. The greatest threat for this is across central and eastern parts of the state. Remember, just a small amount of ice can cause big problems.
I will have your tracking tools in a bit.
Things can get absolutely wild around here later this week into the weekend. It’s a setup that can go from thunderstorms and 60s to cold and snow in just a few hours. The blog has been talking about this since last week and the signal grows stronger as we get closer.
A modified arctic front slides into town on Thursday and early Friday, with a potent low pressure developing along the front. Areas along and west of the track of the low may get smacked around by a winter storm.
Here’s the GFS…
