Snow chances are returning for our Tuesday morning commute. Like last Friday, it's terrible timing. The steadiest snow will likely be during the peak of the morning drive, from 7-9am.
I've got 5 different weather models loaded up below with their snowfall total forecast. Only light amounts are expected (Mostly around 1"). But, as we've seen, just a little snow sticking on the pavement will cause problems - and possibly school delays and cancellations.
The first two maps are from our higher resolution (4km) RPM weather model. Notice, the snow just reaching the Ohio River/I-64 around 6am, with light accumulations already in Indiana. By 10am, almost an inch has accumulated in the Louisville Metro area.
The last four maps in order are the RPM (12km - lower resolution), NAM, GFS, and EURO weather models - all calling for around 1" total by mid-late morning Tuesday. Locally, up to 2" possible.
Once the snow is done be ready for blustery and very cold conditions - wind chills near zero Tuesday afternoon!
