Updated: Friday, Jan. 15, 5:30pm – Scattered snow showers will continue across southern Indiana and central Kentucky through this evening. A brief heavier snow shower may rapidly reduce visibility, so use caution if traveling this evening. Air and road temperatures remain well above freezing. While these temperatures mean travel impacts are currently unlikely, temperatures are expected to drop after sunset. More intense snow showers or a snow squall could quickly drop temperatures and produce gusty winds over 30 mph. Heavier snow showers later this evening are more likely to produce near zero visibility and deteriorating road conditions.
If traveling this evening, be alert for the potential for slick roads and rapidly changing visibilities. The worst impacts and weather will be localized in nature.
Avoid travel if possible tonight and early tomorrow morning.
