It's hard to believe we are talking about snow after the gorgeous day yesterday! But, the weather will go downhill today with rain chances followed by snow later this afternoon. Take a look at the radar/satellite below. A big slug of moisture will stream in from the south throughout the morning. This will clash will the cold air to the north and will change the rain to sleet/snow by afternoon and evening.
A Winter Weather Advisory starts at 2PM this afternoon and continues until 8AM Monday morning for most of the area.
So, lets walk you through the day with Futurecast. Rain moves into our far southern counties starting at 9AM.
Look for a steady rain from I-64 and south by midday. Mainly dry for our southern Indiana counties.
As temperatures continue to fall, look for the transition to sleet/snow by this afternoon. Winds will also be a problem today. Look for winds out of the northeast between 10 to 20 mph with gusts between 25 to 35 mph.
This evening is our best chance to see accumulating snow. The best chance is along the Ohio River and south to the parkways. Watch out for slick spots around the area.
The snow will be moving out by midnight with temperatures falling into the 20s.
The system will be off to the east Monday morning, but watch out for a few slick spots on the roads for the morning commute.
Light accumulations will be possible in the advisory area. One to 2 inches expected with higher amounts in eastern Kentucky.
