Winter Storm Warning posted for Sunday through Monday

By  | 

A Winter Storm Warning begins on Sunday morning for most of our area. Only a few counties in Southeastern Kentucky fall in the Winter Weather Advisory.

Here's a breakdown:

- Light rain will greet most of us in the early morning hours on Sunday.

-A quick change to the messy mix will be possible late in the day.

- The prime time for Freezing rain, Sleet and Snow is Sunday night into early Monday.

-Everyone should see a little of every type of precip mentioned. That makes nailing down exact totals pretty difficult.

-Our thinking is areas along and north of I-64 will pick up around .10"-.25" of freezing rain (The glazing of ice) and 3"-6" of snow and sleet.

-South of I-64 will likely see more ice and less snow. In a zone between I-64 and the Hal Rogers Parkway will see .25"-.50" of ice with 1"-3" of snow and sleet.

-The most southern counties could see .25"-.75" of ice with 1" of snow and sleet.

As new data comes in and we get a better handle on his storm some of these projections could change significantly.

We'll keep you up-to-date.
