Covington area to see ice storm


Soundings have trended higher with QPF and slightly colder as well. I expect the 32 degree line to have a hard time pushing through far northern Kentucky. Ice amounts will gradually decrease the further south one heads with temperatures staying above 32 along I-64. Ice will accumulate to various surfaces including trees and power lines. Looking at the soundings and current dewpoints I’m not sold the precipitation may fall only as freezing rain or rain. In fact sleet may fall for several hours as well across the Covington region. For now expect ice and sleet accumulation under 1/4 inch. If all ice then 1/4 of accumulation could occur. Winter storm warnings and advisories have been issued for northern KY.
