Dangerous travel conditions

UPDATE

Good afternoon, folks. Snow and ice continues to cover roads across the state through Monday and into early Tuesday. The snow seems to have ended, but highs Monday might not get above 20 degrees as the snow ends.

Lows Monday night could flirt with zero in some cases. Check out the numbers from the NAM:

That means more snow days are ahead for Tuesday. Take care.

PREVIOUS UPDATE

Good Monday, everyone. Our major winter storm continues to pound Central and Eastern Kentucky early Monday. This system put down significant freezing rain and sleet Sunday before converting to heavy snow overnight.

The heavy snow will be with us to start the day, and it’s really adding up. Several inches of snow will blanket the area, leading to the worst travel conditions of the entire winter. Heavy snow on top of sleet and ice means you really shouldn’t be traveling until road crews can get on top of it.

Wind gusts of 30 mph will blow the snow around and create drifts. Temperatures won’t help us out today as highs struggle to get to 20. Those winds will make it feel much colder than that.

The snow will taper off from west to east during the early afternoon. Skies will slowly clear, setting up for a bitterly cold night, with lows in the single digits.
