Heavy snow stays south and east of Louisville
The latest winter storm to come our way just can’t seem to get its act together. Sure, there’s energy aloft and moisture available, but all the ingredients for heavy snow here are just not lining up. Along and south of a line from Bowling Green to Lexington to Morehead, snow accumulations of 4″-6″ or more are likely.
But, we’ll be on the northern fringe of the system where the upglide (lifting motions) will be weak. The Louisville area will get 1″-3″ of new snow. That should break down to about 2″-3″ from Louisville into our bordering counties south and east. Southern Indiana will have a diminishing trend from the Ohio River north and west. Starting at about 1″-2″ near the river and dropping off to near zero 30-40 miles away from the river.
Light snow will continue tomorrow morning before fading away during the afternoon. Little or no additional accumulation.
I found this little tidbit really amazing…
