Weather Service issues 'Winter Storm Warning' for Livingston County

Postado Janeiro 13, 2018

Western Kentucky and parts of southern IL already accumulated up to four inches of snow and sleet, according to the Weather Channel.

Where the front has already passed, temperatures were well below zero across much of the northern Plains and upper Midwest Friday morning. Plan on hard travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Thursday.

Thursday - Partly sunny, with a high near 21. Snowfall of 1 to 3 inches.

Big changes arrive to the area as an arctic cold front tracks over Indiana.

After that, however, it's back to below-freezing temperatures. There's a chance of light snow on Sunday afternoon, through Monday. The good news is I don't expect a prolonged period of freezing rain leading to significant icing. Travel will become hazardous by early afternoon Friday.

Most of the areas that experience a wintry mix will also see that eventually change over to snow before the storm exits.

Within this band, there is the potential for some locations to receive up to a foot of snow. Highest accumulations of snow fall in Clarksville to Hopkinsville and Elkton.

FREEZING RAIN: It's rain that freezes when it hits something. The evening commute will be especially hard as the worst of the storm will move in by 4-5 pm in the Helena area.

Sunday night: A 50 percent chance of snow after midnight. Hunter will reach New York, New England, the Dakotas, the midwest, and even the south!

The ice accumulation will make untreated roads, bridges and overpasses treacherous for drivers and pedestrians alike.

In some areas, higher accumulations may lead to some downed tree limbs or weaker trees and trigger some power outages.

Friday night, the low will be around 10, with a wind chill of between minus 1 and 4, and a north wind of 8 miles per hour, according to the weather service.
