Just hours after the area was surprised by a quick moving evening snowstorm on Monday, Jan. 21, the National Weather Service is forecasting enough snow to plow just in time for Friday evening commute. In a briefing issued at 3:15 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 22, National Weather Service is forecasting a storm to form over Kentucky on Friday, Jan. 25 and move across our area early evening and overnight hours.
Arctic temperatures will remain in place, so there no chance for rain and the snow will be very powdery, the agency said.
The Weather Service predicts a water content of .25 to .75 inches so that would normally translate into about 2.5 to 7.5 inches of dry powdery snow.
However, the Weather Service isn’t predicting snow totals yet and wants to wait until the weather models come to together in their forecasts later in the week.
But the Weather Service warns that it may take a few days for this snowfall to melt. Temperatures will remain cold through the weekend before a warming trend occurs early next week.
