With that being said good afternoon folks and welcome to an interesting weather forecast for the night. As of now our cold front has pushed through as our winds are from the northwest. Temperatures will continue to drop through the afternoon into the night with rain switching to snow early this evening.
|Purple dashed line indicates the surface freezing line. Notice the northwesterly winds advecting cold air.|
As of now the change over to snow looks to occur around 6 PM - 7 PM tonight.
|Moderate to heavy snow showing up in the 18Z data. This run is valid for early tomorrow morning. North of the blue line across Kentucky is snow.|
Totals are tough to judge. What we know as of now, a heavy snow band with a tight gradient will set up tonight in Kentucky. Current data suggests Bowing Green will be on the tip of this heavy snow line. Three to 6 inches of snow is our current thinking for total accumulation in Bowling Green. Snow will push out around 6 AM.
Be careful during tomorrows commute and tonight as you travel to and from Super Bowl parties. Moderate to heavy snow may impact the area around 11 PM - 1 AM. Roads tomorrow morning will be slick and snow covered if we do receive 3-6 inches. Snow is nothing to mess around with!
