Deep Freeze

An Arctic airmass is sitting right over us...  Add to that the snow cover and the result will be a brutally cold night with temperatures falling below zero (0 to -10 degrees)!  OUCH!!!

A southerly breeze will develop tomorrow and that should warm us to the upper teens to low 20s by tomorrow afternoon.  We will actually see the temps continue to climb tomorrow night ahead of our next clipper system.

Lets Talk Snow

A clipper system will approach Kentuckiana overnight Friday-Early Saturday morning.  Look for the snow to start falling around 1am Saturday from Bedford to North Vernon.

By 3:30am the snow crosses south of the Ohio River into Louisville.

And by 5:30am the snow is all the way south to Columbia.  I think Louisville will see most of it's snow fall between 3:30 to 7:30 AM.

The steady snow is out of Kentuckiana by 9:30 AM with a few lingering flurries or snow shower until midday.

Snow Total

Right now the Metro looks like it will receive 1-2 inches.  Up to 3 inches is possible north and east of a line from Bedford, IN to Frankfort, KY. 

We may have to shift these totals a little north or south Friday after analyzing the newest weather models.  Stay tuned...!
