The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch ahead of Thursday and Friday’s predicted snow that affects the following WSLM locations:
ACCUMULATING SNOW THROUGH EARLY AFTERNOON…
WINTER STORM WATCH ISSUED FOR THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH LATE
According to the National Weather Service office in Louisville, a strong winter storm will bring significant snow and ice accumulations to the Ohio Valley Thursday night through Friday night.
Becky White of WSLM said the winter storm watch will bring a wintery mix beginning Thursday night with freezing rain for most of the evening.
“Predictions now are for around a quarter of an inch of ice,” White said. “Expect travel to be impaired. Snow and ice is expected to quickly accumulate on road surfaces.”
White said the NWS has issued traveling precautions that include keeping an extra flashlight, food and water as well as blankets in the vehicle in case of an emergency.
WSLM will be participating in another conference call with the NWS on Thursday and will be providing updates on the weather system throughout the rest of the week.
