Slick roads becoming a problem

Rounds of snow continue to push across central and eastern Kentucky. These bands of snow are combining with falling temperatures to produce slick roads. Some untreated and secondary roads are becoming snow covered.

Previous Update

The snow line continues to dive southward into central Kentucky. This should work into the Lexington metro between 8 and 9 this evening. The rain is washing away the pre-treatment from road crews and all that water will freeze later tonight as temps drop into the teens.

Throw accumulating snow on top of it and you have the recipe for very slick roads.

The highest snowfall totals will be for areas north of Interstate 64 with 3"-6" possible. It still looks like a general 1"-4" snow for the Lexington metro.

Earlier update

A Winter Storm Warning is out for much of northern Kentucky and gets as far south as Scott County. A Winter Weather Advisory is now out for the rest of central and eastern Kentucky.

Snow and rain continues to overspread the state and this action will become heavy at times. Areas along and north of Interstate 64 will see the highest snowfall with 2"-6" possible. Amounts to the south of the Interstate will be in the 1"-4" range because of more rain at the start.

Temps this evening will crash from northwest to southeast and this will switch the precipitation to all snow. Road conditions will go downhill quickly... especially after dark.

The snow will taper off late tonight as temps head into the low teens. Gusty winds will make it feel much colder than that.

Another round of light snow moves in for Saturday night.
