Good Monday, everyone. The rain part of the storm is over, and now comes the cold and wind. This is all from a major winter storm that continues to blast much of the country with snow and ice.
The Sunday rain was impressive, and Lexington set another daily rainfall record. Just over an inch of rain was recorded, breaking the March 24 record rainfall set in 1958. That’s the second time in the past week that Lexington has set a daily rainfall record.
Snow showers will be widespread today, and that will carry into early Tuesday. Light, slushy accumulations will be a good bet today, especially on bridges and overpasses. It might snow hard enough to cause some slick roads at times.
I do expect slick roads to become more of a problem overnight and Tuesday morning. Temps will drop into the middle 20s during this time as the snow continues to fly. Most areas will pick up an inch or two of snow, with local three inches possible in places. The higher elevations of southeastern Kentucky might pick up four or more inches.
Let’s track it all:
I-75 @ Clays Ferry Bridge South
Between Lexington and Richmond
US 60 @ US 127
I-71/I-75 at Buttermilk Pike
I-71/I-75 at I-275
I-64 @ 3rd St. Exit
Downtown Louisville @ 2nd & Broadway
I will have updates as needed. Make it a safe day and take care.
