Watching a developing storm system to our south that will affect the tri-state late tonight and into early Friday.
Low pressure developing to our southwest today will rapidly move northeast through Tennessee. The tri-state will be on the northern fringe of this system, meaning we'll see lighter precipitation and colder air. I'm expecting mainly light snow and sleet over most of the tri-state with only minor accumulations of a trace to around an inch over western Kentucky. Here are the current winter alerts for the region. You'll notice the tri-state has no current alerts.
Light snow and sleet will begin after midnight, mainly between 3am and 9am, before tapering off completely by midday.
This is a minor winter event for the tri-state, but even a little bit of freezing rain... which is possible over our far southern counties, could cause some very slick roads. I think this will similar to what we experienced last week when we had some big problems getting around over western Kentucky.
Temperatures will warm-up to the 50s and even 60s on Monday and Tuesday before a strong cold front moves in Tuesday night and early Wednesday. The Storm Prediction Center has already outlooked much of the tri-state for the possibility of severe weather. We'll have to watch this one as it could turn into a significant severe weather event for the region.
