The snow has arrived and it continues to snow lightly. Radar is showing the snow filtering in from the west. The darker contours indicate periods of heavier snow, that’s something to watch as the evening wears on. A general 1″-3″ is expected.
Today there were already school closings and for some that went, early dismissals.
With that being said. Lets see how the roads are:
I-75 Newtown Pike
Clark County I-64 West Bound
I-75 Man O’ War

The school watch Meter still stands at an 8 out of 11 for Friday!

Happy New Year! Winter has arrived and despite Kentucky weather’s Spring-like escapades, we’re always reminded that Winter is still upon us. For the last two days its been dreary and in the 60s. Today, bare cold and frigid weather is filtering into the region. But lets be hopeful, if you feel like you’re missing out on the snow this season, there’s a good chance we get our first accumulating snowfall later this week, in fact, soon!
Tomorrow, I’m tracking a snowmaker that will usher through in waves. The track and chances of this snow system has been consistent over the past couple of days, it’s not going to be a shutdown snow, but it is just enough snow to be noticed. As you can see from the NAM run, the snow moves in as early as Thursday morning. However, keep in mind that the snow must tackle some of the dry air we have place now. So, it’s likely we’ll start off with just a couple of flakes falling from the sky. Don’t anticipate an immediate “snow down” once the first flakes arrive. I’ll say around 10am-the afternoon and evening, we’ll see some moderate and even heavier bands of snow that could put down a couple of inches in some spots.

In terms of accumulation, NAM is putting the I-64 corridor around the 1”-3” for accumulating snow. *NOTE This goes from Thursday through Friday morning.

Here’s my initial thoughts on the expected snowfall…
So kids, Snow day tomorrow? Not likely, I think there’s a better chance for school closings Friday.
I’ll keep you posted! 😉
