It’s a very brisk MLK Jr Day, highs only made it into the upper teens, the daytime high in Lexington was 19 degrees, barely hit 20, however windchills hovered anywhere around 0 to 5 degrees this afternoon. We’re stuck with this cold tomorrow as well as highs are only expected to reach the low 20s.
Now on to Wednesday, a snow moves in Wednesday morning, and at this point it is likely that several spots could see a couple of inches, especially for those across southern Kentucky . Snowfall ratios will be near 8:1, thanks to a very cold ground set by this Arctic cold, and temperatures that morning will be in the upper teens and lower 20s. Here is my first shot at snow.
Now a Snowday comes into question, and as a former Scott County student, I always loved to see snow in the forecast, because that meant a possible delay or closing.School teachers and staff, I know the ‘talk of the town ‘ will be Wednesday morning’s snow. So here’s just a run-down of what i’m seeing
- Snow arrives around 5-8 am Wednesday morning, roads will remain will below freezing, any snow that falls will stick.
- There may be some heavy periods of snow at times which could limit visibility.
- Though we aren’t getting the MOST out of this, regardless, accumulating snow is conducive to deteriorating road conditions,
- Most School systems either Delay or Close school in these type of events, but it’s not my call, its the Superintendent’s.
- I will have gain confidence on whether or not there’s a school closing tomorrow, so check back with me.
