Updated Friday at 8:30 AM... The new snow risk map from the HPC has the heaviest snow band right up the Ohio River.
There is a moderate risk for 4 inches of snow from Owensboro to just west of Louisville. This is all for tonight.
The Weather Channel says 2-4 inches for Louisville.
Here are the forecasts for snow from the NWS.....
E'town up to 1
New Albany 3
Bedford, KY 3
New Castle 1-3
Paoli, Salem, Scottsburg, Madison 3
Bedford, IN, Seymour 2-3
North Vernon 3-4
There are 2 separate systems. The northern one is producing 1-5 inch amounts from South Dakota to Michigan.
On the southern system you can see the snow over Oklahoma. That will reach here this evening.
The Winter Weather ADVISORY goes as ar south as E'town and Bardstown. To the north, the Indianapolis NWS does not issue an advisory unless 4 inches of snow is expected. The 3 inch forecast for Seymour and the 3-4 inch forecast for Jennings Co. does not qualify for an advisory. This makes no sense to me. I have been in Indy before with an inch or two of snow and there have been hundreds of wrecks. 3 inches of snow is hazardous and there should be an advisory.
So there is no advisory for North Vernon with a forecast of 3-4 inches but in southern Minnesota there is an advisory for 3 to 4 inches of snow. Indy NWS needs to examine their advisory and warning criteria.
