Winter Storm Through Tonight

Winter Storm Warning in Effect
Posted at 5:26 AM, Jan 16, 2022

What an interesting day here in Kentucky as we have tracked some very impactful weather. The precipitation began in southern KY as a light rain/freezing rain/sleet mixture, but it only took a few hours to change over to snow and sleet and fall at a good steady pace for much of the afternoon and evening. Everything, then, worked its way farther north eventually landing in Lexington and points east. Accumulation is a sure thing for most of our viewing area through the rest of this evening and even into the overnight. The Winter Storm Warning will remain in place until 4 am Monday.

We will eventually see the snow come to an end shortly after midnight tonight with a lingering snow shower or two lasting through Monday morning. Please take plenty of extra time traveling tonight and Monday morning as the roads will likely be snow and ice-covered, particularly untreated roads. Monday will eventually dry out, but remain cold, so not much melting will occur. Temperatures later in the week will start to warm back up at least to the upper 30s by Tuesday with some sun. Our next weather system will be rain falling across the area on Wednesday. After that, we dry back out but stay cold (highs in the 20s) through late week and next weekend.
