Revised snow forecast

Monday, 02/8/2016  5 P.M.

Quick update to adjust forecast to current trends…

The upper level low expected to move over the area this evening is right on schedule, however, it’s path now looks like it’ll stay just west of Louisville.  So, heaviest snows – an inch or so – will stay west and south of us (Evansville, Owensboro, Leitchfield, Bowling Green, Hopkinsville, etc.) now look as though they might pick up 1″-2″ overnight.

Elsewhere, the short term models are showing a quick drying of the lower atmosphere in the wake of the short wave.  Radar confirms the decreasing intensity of the snowfall headed our way.  The region of snow showers is headed elsewhere, so we’re down to mostly flurries.  So, I’m getting less optimistic about our snow totals.

Louisville and surrounding areas:  Snow flurries this evening should (mostly) end by 9 P.M.  After that, a few scattered flurries overnight with an uptick in areal coverage beginning around daybreak.  Flurries continue tomorrow.

Snow accumulation tonight – a dusting up to as much as one inch.

Little, or no, additional accumulation tomorrow.

I still expect some slick spots on area roads tonight and for rush hour in the morning.
