... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 10 am EST
/9 am CST/ Wednesday...

* timing... intermittent snow showers... the greatest intensity
expected this afternoon and early evening.

will impact travel. Roads will remain or become slick and snow
covered... especially secondary and untreated surfaces. An
additional 1 inch of accumulation is expected.

* Other impacts... gusty winds may reduce visibility at times.
Lingering moisture from Monday has frozen... creating a layer
of ice underneath the freshly fallen snow.

Research shows that more traffic accidents occur with an inch or
less of snow... before drivers realize that traction is reduced.
Don't become a statistic... slow down and leave extra distance
between vehicles.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Louisville Kentucky 
311 PM EST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Short term (now through Wednesday night)... 
issued at 310 PM EST Tue Feb 9 2016 


..another round of snow showers late this afternoon/evening... 


Coverage of snow showers is expected to increase over the next few 
hours as individual disturbances continue to rotate through the 
parent trough. Meanwhile, a few peaks at the sun are occurring and 
surface temps are maximizing which is helping to steepen low level 
lapse rates. This should also help increase intensity of snow 
showers a bit through the afternoon and evening. Overall moisture 
continues to be shallow, but with the cold air in place saturation 
is still occurring up to the -16 to -18 c range, good enough for 
dendritic growth. In addition, snow ratios are between 20 and 25 to 
1. So, will continue with scattered to numerous light to briefly 
moderate snow showers through the afternoon and evening. This will 
allow for anywhere from a dusting up to around an inch through the 
overnight. Expect that most spots will be around a half inch or 
less, and with only localized areas up around an inch. Seeing some 
lower visibilities with upstream snow showers, and would like to see 
how things progress over our County Warning Area this afternoon/evening. So, will 
leave it as is. Some slick spots are still possible through the 
Wednesday morning commute so will keep expiration time the same. 


Scattered snow showers should linger into tonight with temperatures 
dropping into the teens. 


Light snow showers and flurries linger mainly across our east 
through Wednesday with very little, if any, additional 
accumulations. Temperatures will also struggle, only reaching into 
the low and mid 20s. 


Data continues to trend weaker and further southwest with the 
clipper diving through the northwest flow aloft. This is likely due to the 
dry air in place that limited moisture will likely have trouble 
overcoming. Have painted very low chance pops across our far SW with 
a buffer of flurries. Lows will again be in the teens. 


Long term (thursday through tuesday)... 
issued at 310 PM EST Tue Feb 9 2016 


Thursday - Thursday night... 


Persistent northwest flow aloft will dominate our upper pattern during this 
time, with surface high pressure also overspreading the region 
behind the cold front. Expect dry conditions with partly cloudy 
skies trending toward mostly sunny/clear later Thursday. Highs are 
expected in the upper 20s to around 30 under plenty of sun on 
Thursday, dropping into the mid and upper teens again Thursday night. 


Friday - Friday evening... 


Still some disagreement for Friday on the overall amplitude of the 
upper trough, and the potential for a clipper to dive into our 
region. Overall trend has been weaker with available moisture, 
likely due to the very dry airmass in place ahead of it's arrival. 
Will keep chances low across our County Warning Area. If some snow is realized, we 
would have high snow ratios to work with, so a little quantitative precipitation forecast would 
still yield some very light accums. 


Friday night - Sunday... 


Dry northwest flow aloft should continue through the weekend, with Arctic 
surface high dropping into our region. Lows will be in the teens by 
Saturday morning, with highs only in the low and mid 20s on Saturday 
afternoon. Lows then dip into the upper single digits and low teens 
by Sunday morning. Temps will try to recover on Sunday, however are 
not expected to get above freezing. This cold air in place will then 
set the stage for a potential early week winter event. 


Sunday night - Tuesday... 


There is general model agreement in a system moving into our region 
as early as Sunday evening lasting through Monday. Details in exact 
timing/strength will still need to be resolved, but there is cold 
air in place ahead of the storm, and deep moisture to work with. At 
this point data would support an all snow event at least across the 
northern portions of our County Warning Area until Monday afternoon when perhaps 
some warmer air would work into the system and provide a mix of 
rain/snow. Will hold off on more details than that until things 
become more clear in the coming days.

Aviation (18z taf update)... 
updated at 1240 PM EST Tue Feb 9 2016 


Have a general light snow across the region this hour, with 
scattered to numerous light to occasionally moderate showers 
forecast from mid afternoon into the evening hours. Have stayed 
optimistic in this package for cigs/vsby, but cannot ruleout briefly 
going to IFR for either. Winds will continue from the west, causing 
some runway issues at sdf, with some gusts in the 15-20 knot range 
this afternoon and evening. The chance for snow will decrease 
through the night and Wednesday morning as deeper moisture leaves 
the region.
