Temperatures remain well above freezing at 8pm.
Here’s the advisory from the National Weather Service:
A CLIPPER WILL PASS THROUGH THE OHIO VALLEY THIS EVENING CONTINUING TO BRING RAIN. A SHARP COLD FRONT WILL THEN SLIDE IN
BEHIND THIS SYSTEM SHORTLY AFTER MIDNIGHT…WITH LINGERING PRECIPITATION RAPIDLY CHANGING OVER TO LIGHT SNOW OR PERHAPS
POCKETS OF FREEZING DRIZZLE. ALTHOUGH PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO BE VERY LIGHT FROM THE PRE-DAWN HOURS THROUGH MID MORNING…THE COMBINATION OF TEMPERATURES QUICKLY FALLING INTO THE 20S AND WET OR SNOW DUSTED ROADWAYS MAY LEAD TO SOME SLICK CONDITIONS. THE MORNING COMMUTE COULD BE IMPACTED NEGATIVELY…ESPECIALLY ON UNTREATED ROADWAYS. THE MOST LIKELY AREA FOR SLICK SPOTS WILL BE EAST OF I-65 AND ALONG AND NORTH OF I-64. SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO BE A TRACE TO A HALF AN INCH.
