Current Official Hourly Observation (taken at :53 on the hour)

Our NWS issued the following statement at 8:32 PM:
Also watching much lighter snow than we saw earlier tonight work SE down I-24. Radar at 8:29 PM:
7:30 PM Update
Sleet changed to snow after dark, and we even had thundersnow, which is rare for us.
Although a few flurries will linger over the next hour or so (until 9 PM), this is no more than a dusting. However, the snow/sleet/rain now on our ground has nothing to do but freeze. Temps are rocketing south: 26 by 9 PM, 17 by Midnight (which will be our high for the day), on our way to single digits from 6 AM Monday until 9 AM Tuesday.
Later tonight, there’s a chance we could pick up another few tenths of an inch of snow from western Kentucky. Radar from 7:32 PM tonight.
Travel is discouraged tonight. Follow @TDOTDeanna for travel info.
