update and rant

first to the complaint

.4 in sleet in versailles this getting to ready outrageous there’s been no winter weather adv for the counties which have been under that band for the past few hours. roads, driveways and all surfaces are now ice covered and it is very slick. and they can see the band has moved very little in the past few hours i’m sure they can see this at lmk

here’s there terminology for adv’s
 this is would require a sleet adv.
 Issued for expected sleet accumulations of less than 1/2 inch.

WE ALREADY AHVE THAT IN THE AREAS UNDER THE BAND

there terminology for a winter weather adv
Used when a mixture of precipitation is expected such as snow, sleet, and freezing rain or freezing drizzle, but will not reach warning criteria.

MOST OF US HAVE SEEN THAT

get with it lmk.

now look again at the defintion for a winter weather adv and what this says

…PERIODS OF SLEET AND SNOW…

A MIX OF SNOW AND SLEET WILL CONTINUE OVER MUCH OF NORTH CENTRAL
AND EAST CENTRAL KENTUCKY THIS EVENING…WITH THE MIX BECOMING ALL
SNOW AFTER 7 PM EST.

TEMPERATURES WILL FALL INTO THE MID AND UPPER 20S AND SNOW WILL
BEGIN TO COVER ROADWAYS…RESULTING IN SLICK HIGHWAYS THAT ARE NOT
TREATED. SNOW WILL ACCUMULATE TO LESS THAN 1 INCH WITH SOME
LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS…ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE NORTHERN BLUEGRASS
REGION WHERE TEMPS ARE COLDEST AND SNOW WILL BE MODERATELY HEAVY
AT TIMES.

outrages.

the frankfort, lexington, dry ridge and shelbyville will see periods of snow and sleet for the next few hours with around an inch of snow and sleet accumlation if not a bit more roads will become very slick and hazordus further east rain will change to sleet and snow with a couple inches of accumlation through noon sunday.

    Hey Mitch!

    When do you see warm temperatures staying around for good in Kentucky? Late March-ish?

    It seems, according to your 14-day that we have some 70 degree weather coming up next week but then some flurries.

    on another note this will turn out to be one heck of a storm from charlotte to philly to new york to boston with quite a few 12 totals and i could see some 20-30 totals .

  3. mitchg Says:

    i still see it differently than the nws after there 9:45 discussion. the 02z ruc still looks about the same.
