Winter Storm Warning continues for Kentuckiana through midday Monday.

This morning's freezing rain tapered off sooner than we expected a the colder (slight drier) air pushed into the region.  Areas in Indiana and just south of the Ohio River received between .10 to .25" of freezing rain. 

Additional light ice accumulation of .10 to .25" possible.  Still a a chance for heavy ice accumulation in Green, Taylor, Adair counties, KY.

Batch of sleet and freezing (even thunder sleet) moving out of W. KY looks to be in the Metro around 5pm.  Then the upper level low over the TX panhandle will track in our direction increasing our chance for snow after 9pm through early tomorrow morning.  The snow could be moderate to heavy at times.

Snow ending in the Metro after 7am.

Leaving our southern KY counties after 11pm


3 to 6 inches possible in Indiana to south of the W. KY/Bluegrass Pkwys, including Metro Louisville.  If banding develops overnight we could see locally 8" south of the Ohio River.

Final Thoughts.

While morning ice totals were lighter than expected, more sleet and freezing rain on tap for this evening.  Then an increasing chance for accumulating snow tonight-tomorrow morning!  Temps will drop into the low 20s overnight and this will result in icy roads for our Monday morning commute!  Please drive carefully!
