NWS: Winter weather advisory issued beginning Friday afternoon

Adjust Comment Print

As this system begins to wrap up Sunday, colder air crashes back in as a changeover to all light snow breaks out across central and eastern Kentucky. Light-to-moderate snow will kick things off before transitioning to a rain/snow mix and eventually, plain rain takes over, especially across southern Kentucky Saturday afternoon. The earlier you leave Friday morning, the better.

It's winter, so it shouldn't be a surprise that we're expecting some snow this weekend as a cold burst of weather hits our region this week.

The watch that's in effect from Friday night through Sunday morning covers 25 in counties and includes the cities of Indianapolis, Bloomington, Columbus, Terre Haute and Vincennes, as well as numerous other communities.

Across much of the northeastern United States, it's the complaints of snow-lovers (not the scrape of snow plows) that are still being heard as we move into the middle of January. We will also have traffic updates all day, including Rodger Brand and Maria Keena's traffic reports until 9 a.m. today and during Total Information P.M.

Temperatures will be in the low 40s just after midnight tonight and that will likely be the warmest moment on Friday. Wind chill values are in the 20s. It will be dry on Monday. It's breezy, with temperatures in the middle 30s. Temperatures are expected to stay in the upper 30s during the day, with snow possible in the evening and overnight as temperatures drop to around 30 degrees. Have a great weekend!
