Most areas in Kentucky have seen a decrease in snowfall over the last few hours. Most notably, areas west of I-75. Flurries continue, but the heavier showers have progressed into eastern Kentucky. Temperatures remain frigid thanks to abundant cloud coverage and snow on the ground. Don’t expect more than a few degrees above freezing for the rest of today.
Travel impacts will continue overnight as snow showers fall in primarily eastern and southeastern Kentucky counties. Most of the snow that fell on roads has since melted and ice will not become a concern. Temperatures will drop well below freezing after sunset. Black ice can be a cause for concern overnight and through Tuesday morning. Snow showers will continue to wind down in Eastern Kentucky overnight and through the morning on Tuesday. An additional 0.5” to 2.00” of snow is expected for locations east of Interstate 75.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for much of the forecast area and will expire at different times from west to east. Southeast Kentucky will be under the advisory until at least 7:00 am tomorrow. Sunshine will become more available, especially for Bluegrass and Lakes region counties. With leftover snow on the ground, even with sun we can still expect a cold Groundhog’s Day. Wednesday will not be much of an improvement for temperature, but everyone gets sunshine making it look better. Rain showers are expected back in the forecast for the end of the week as temperatures finally rebound above normal.
