Let me begin by saying thanks to those that have posted pictures and reports to our facebook and twitter accounts. In a situation like this... "ground truth" means a lot! This is especially true in the suburbs!
We've seen it all tonight.
Rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow!
IT'S A RACE AGAINST TIME
The temperatures have been critical in determining precipitation type. We went over this in depth on the news this evening. The good news is that the warming to our west will push into the area overnight... and alleviate any problems that may currently exist. We have had a few slick spots reported this evening, but nothing too widespread. (Here's a view of the radar with the 10PM temperatures)
WINTER STORM WARNINGS
The radar shows the scope of the storm and the winter weather alerts show where the most intense part of the storm is located. Portions of our area remain under the WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY until 4:00AM.
TRAVEL FROM IOWA TO KENTUCKY
Thanks to Mercedes for posting this picture to our WAVE 3 Weather Facebook Page! You can see how much worse the weather is to our northwest. I-29 was a mess!
We actually had thundersnow here in Louisville and across the area just a few weeks again. It didn't amount to much, but it was an interesting sight to see... and many of you saw it.
Here's an example of Thundersnow caught on camera from the National Weather Service in Wichita, Kansas earlier today.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
IT'S A WHAT? FOR WHERE?
