A clipper system will continue to bring light to moderate snow to southern IN and central Kentucky through Tuesday.
These flurries will prominently affect Eastern Massachusetts and mostly remain light, though the South Shore into Plymouth County will see the heaviest amounts of snow on Monday, forecasters say.
A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 7 p.m. for the following counties: Lee, Lexington, Richland, Saluda, Sumter. So, we do have concerns for a slow and slippery commute Tuesday morning.
Light snow today is expected to give way to greater accumulation as the National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from 12 a.m.to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17. The NWS expects a high around 29 degrees, wind chill values as low as 2 degrees and gusts reaching 25 miles per hour. An arctic front is on the way and you can see from our hourly forecast that as the temperatures fall, the chances of snow increase. An inch of snow is possible. However, some of the melted snow will refreeze tonight into Wednesday morning creating patchy areas of ice that we may be contending with. Overnight lows both Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the low to mid teens and wind chill values Tuesday night will be as cold as -10°.
Tonight, a Hard Freeze is expected, with lows near 20.
Thursday: Mainly sunny. High 43.
Friday, partly sunny, with a high near 34.
This will allow for highs to climb back toward freezing with 50s being felt by Friday in parts of the viewing area! The snow has gotten a little bit of a later start and will likely last into the late afternoon.
