... Light wintry precipitation could cause slick spots Monday
A clipper will pass through the Ohio Valley this evening
continuing to bring rain. A sharp cold front will then slide in
behind this system shortly after midnight... with lingering
precipitation rapidly changing over to light snow or perhaps
pockets of freezing drizzle. Although precipitation is expected to
be very light from the pre-dawn hours through mid morning... the
combination of temperatures quickly falling into the 20s and wet
or snow dusted roadways may lead to some slick conditions. The
morning commute could be impacted negatively... especially on
untreated roadways. The most likely area for slick spots will be
east of I-65 and along and north of I-64. Snowfall accumulations
are expected to be a trace to a half an inch.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 311 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 Short term (now through Monday night)... issued at 310 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 ..light wintry precipitation could cause slick spots overnight into Monday morning... The surface low associated with a strong pv anomaly is now working across southern Illinois, and will continue to slide east-southeast across our area this evening. Light to occasionally moderate rainfall will continue late this afternoon and evening ahead of this feature. Most spots should see around a quarter of an inch of rainfall, with locaized spots up to a half an inch. As the system departs to our east tonight, a sharp cold front will slide northwest to southeast across our area with rapidly dropping temperatures into the mid 20s. Enough low level moisture looks to linger during this time to support a change over to light snow. Can't rule out some freezing drizzle as well as saturation only GOES up to around -7 or -8 c, bringing the availability of ice crystals into question. Either way, the combination of wet roads (from recent heavier rainfall), and potential for a light snow dusting, or a very thin glaze of ice could lead to some travel problems ahead of and into the morning commute. Confidence isn't overly high in widespread travel problems, but enough that special mention should be given. Issued a Special Weather Statement to highlight concerns. If confidence does become higher, then can't rule out an upgraded product with future updates. Overall, kept light snow as the predominant p-type as we head toward dawn, with generally a half an inch or less of snow accumulation. Most likely area to see more problems with slick roads should be east of I-65 and along and north of I-64. Expect lingering light snow/flurries/or freezing drizzle along and east of I-75 through the first part of Monday. Temperatures will struggle for much of the day under steady cold advection and only expect highs in the low and mid 30s. Skies should stay mostly cloudy to cloudy under lingering low clouds. As we move into Monday evening/Monday night, we'll watch as the left exit region of an upper jet dives sharply south southeastward overnight. As it does so, 1000-700 mb moisture will pool underneath and should result in some light precipitation across the area, mostly in the form of light snow. Best location for this looks to be along and west of I-65 Monday evening, moving to along and east of I-65 late Monday night. Long term (tuesday through sunday)... issued at 250 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 Several light precipitation chances still remain the long term period as we remain in an unsettled weather pattern. Tues small vort waves on the back side of a broad upper trough will create snow shower chances during the morning hours and then possibly changing over to a rain/snow mix west of I-65/remaining snow east of I-65 during the afternoon hours. A light snow accumulation may result from this snow shower activity on Tuesday. Flurries will likely last into the evening hours. The next precip chances will come Wed night into thurs as a clipper system moves east across the upper Midwest. At this time, the low associated with this clipper looks to pass to our north and actually pull up a decent amount of warm air on Wed night. Precip may start as a brief wintry mix Wed night and then transition to plain rain as upper 30s and lower 40s temps get pulled into our area. Southerly winds and a noticeably warmer airmass will result in rain on thurs with high temps reaching the upper 40s to around 50. Precipitation will likely end thurs night as light snow or a rain/snow mix. Temps will run slightly below normal tues/Wed, then a warm day expected for thurs, and back to slightly below normal for the end of the week. The weekend forecast is much less certain with models backing off of any major weather systems to bring US notable precip. Have scaled back pops to 20% for Sat night/Sun night with snow or rain/snow being the p-type. && Aviation (18z taf update)... issued at 1200 PM EST sun Jan 25 2015 Conditions will deteriorate through the taf period as a clipper system dives southeast into the Ohio Valley by this evening. Rain and associated lower cigs/vsbys will move into sdf/bwg shortly after the forecast GOES valid, holding off at Lex until early evening. Still expecting IFR conditions as the surface low settles over the sites which should occur by early evening and last until frontal passage occurs after midnight. Highest confidence in IFR is at ksdf and klex, with lower confidence at kbwg. A strong cold front will sweep through all sites, bringing gusty northwesterly winds (gusts in excess of 20 knots) along with a brief changeover to some light snow early Monday morning. Likely won't see any accumulations from this snow, but can't completely rule out a quick tenth of an inch or so. It should be noted that if moisture isn't deep enough, precipitation type could end as some freezing drizzle as surface temperatures quickly crash. && Lmk watches/warnings/advisories...
