A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from late tonight through
late Friday night.
* Timing: the initial change over to a wintry mix looks to occur
just after midnight along the Ohio River... around daybreak
along an Elizabethtown to Frankfort line... and then by late
morning... early afternoon across the rest of the watch area.
* Main impact: significant accumulations of ice... sleet and snow
will likely result in treacherous driving conditions Friday
and Friday night dependent on location. Some isolated power
outages will be possible... where freezing rain is most
prevalent... which appears to be across west central Kentucky.
The most significant snow accumulations look to occur along
the Ohio River.
* Other impacts: temperatures will rapidly fall across the
entire watch area on Friday night. Any pre-existing wet
surfaces could quickly freeze creating more hazardous driving
and walking conditions.
A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
