Today will be beautiful! Enjoy it. Sure, we’re starting out chilly, but temperatures are above freezing and will remain as such through the day. Right now, we sit in the low 40s or upper 30s. That’s a 15 degrees jump from this time yesterday thanks to a southerly wind. Visibility seems to be doing just fine across all areas. The cold is coming, along with some rain and snow, we’ll get to that in your full StormTracker forecast.
After today’s chilly start, we climb to 60 degrees this afternoon thanks to clear skies and a breezy southwesterly wind. Today will look and feel great, considering where we’ll be in only a few days. Rain will move in later for Veteran’s Day. The morning will be dry and chilly. Temperatures should make it to the upper 50s Monday afternoon, despite the cloud coverage and rain. This will help with road conditions down the line.
Temperatures are expected to drop to freezing around midnight or 1:00 a.m. on Tuesday. This is when the rain will start transitioning to snow. The transition will be quick as the air rushing in is well below freezing. Therefore, all precipitation changes over to snow before it ends. Snow showers will last through the morning commute for most but should wrap up shortly after for the I-75 corridor. Eastern counties will see snow showers wrap up late Tuesday morning or early in the afternoon. Snow amounts are looking to be between an inch and up to 2 generally. Higher amounts are possible in localized locations. The highest amounts will occur in the southeast counties’ higher terrain. The Bluegrass and I-75 corridor will likely be closer to an inch or even lower. Roads will be slippery for the morning commute Tuesday and likely into the afternoon. Use caution and take it slow. Remember that shoulders, turn lanes, medians, and lightly trafficked roads will collect snow first.
