Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Owensboro, Tri-State
AAARRRGGGHH! That's the sound one makes when one learns of the umpteenth winter weather advisory this month.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the tri-state for Thursday evening into Friday morning.
Here's what they're expecting for us:
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9 PM THIS EVENING TO 9 AM CST FRIDAY... * WHAT...Very light freezing rain or freezing drizzle is expected. Total ice accumulations from a trace to less than a tenth of an inch expected. * WHERE...Portions of southwest Indiana, southeast Missouri, western Kentucky and southern Illinois. * WHEN...From 9 PM this evening to 9 AM CST Friday. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The hazardous conditions could impact the morning commute. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving.
Freezing rain is my least favorite type of winter precipitation. By far. But at least the NWS is using the phrase "very light."
Fortunately, Eyewitness News is calling for a high in the lower 40s tomorrow. But for tonight, let's all drive extra slow. If we even have to be out in it at all.
