Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Western Kentucky, Southwest Indiana
Me and my big mouth. There's a reason I don't record basketball games in case the team I support might win. It's called the JINX. There's a reason I bite my tongue before saying something will never happen or something always happens. It's called the JINX.
And maybe I did it again, except that it started a year ago.
KENTUCKY WINTER, INDIANA WINTER
I remember quite vividly saying LAST January that we hardly ever get any snow anymore during wintertime. And then, BAM, we got dumped on in February and it stuck around for about a week. Well, that particular jinx has lasted into 2022. We've already seen two snow events and we're getting set for a third. I really need to keep my mouth shut.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the tri-state that will last from 4 PM, Wednesday, January 19th until 6 AM, Thursday, January 20th. What's more, the winter weather in question will bring with it risky travel conditions, so please be aware and PLEASE don't think you have to get somewhere quickly late Wednesday afternoon or Wednesday evening.
ICY ROAD CONDITIONS
According to the National Weather Service:
"WHAT...Mixed precipitation expected. Total snow accumulations of up to two inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze.
WHERE...Portions of southwest Indiana and western Kentucky. The advisory extends from the Evansville metro area south and east, including Henderson and Owensboro, and as far south as Madisonville and Central City.
WHEN...From 4 PM Wednesday to 6 AM CST Thursday.
IMPACTS...Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions could impact the evening commute.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The combination of gusty winds, falling temperatures and wind chills, and falling snow will cause hazardous travel. Freezing of residual moisture on roads from rain earlier Wednesday will cause some ice."
SIGH. Oh well, here we go again. Please be safe, drive slowly, and join me in wishing a merciful end to this winter...or at least winter weather.
Hey, I like building a snowman as much as the next person, but not as much as I hate driving on ice.
