Good afternoon everyone. As usual, the winter weather fence is setting up across Kentucky, with snow in the north and heavy rain in the south. Sandwiched in between is a combo of the two, with some sleet thrown in for good measure.
Areas north of Interstate 64 will continue to see mainly snow throughout the afternoon and have the greatest risk of picking up on several inches of slushy accumulations. Here’s a rough look at what may wind up happening…
Those lines are NOT set in stone, especially when dealing with such a fine line in rain verses snow.Temps in the north are near freezing and the snow rates are overcoming the warm and wet ground. It may also snow fast enough to cover roads.
Farther south and southeast, it’s all about the heavy rain and flooding potential. A good 1″-2″ of rain may fall, leading to high water issues developing.
The blog is all set to do some tracking…
