Damage assessment. Now your weather with meteorologist Daniel Johnson. It was a quiet day out there today and it will stay quiet all night. But tomorrow the impact weather will start and we will expect snow showers across the region. More on that next. But here’s a live look outside. Nothing happens regarding the weather. Just a lot of clouds, a bit cold. We have reached 47 degrees west, northwest winds at 11, and these winds will strengthen tomorrow. These wind gusts will be very strong. 54 degrees was the highest today. We had a little sunshine which allowed temperatures to rise. 47 is where we need to be. So, another day with above average temperatures. So let’s talk about the weather impact over the next 24 hours. We are at least cloudy until about 8am 9am. Mostly very quiet for the next several hours. Temperatures in the 30s, and then by the noon hour tomorrow, we’ll start to see these scattered showers, especially in the metro. He points to the east. Temperatures start to drop throughout the day on and off. Snow showers. We’re up to 35 by 4:00, so that’s good news overall. The weather is colder than normal. That’s why we don’t care much about snow-covered roads. But we’ll explain why this winter weather advisory is in effect here. So all the purple counties under the winter weather advisory that includes Jefferson County here that points to the east, including some counties in southern Indiana, Floyd, Clark, Scott, and Jefferson County as well. This is from 10:00 am on Monday until 7:00 pm. Typically, winter weather warnings are issued for at least 1 to 2 to 3 inches of snow or a wintry mix of rain that could make travel dangerous. This was issued even though we are not expecting a lot of snow. It has been issued because it may affect your evening commute in particular. That’s when a lot of people travel. So they want to put that warning out there to give people a heads up. We are watching a coastal storm just off the coast of the Carolinas, moving inland toward the DC area. For us, our weather instrument is headed toward Minneapolis, or at least a piece of it will slide south, bringing us those scattered snow showers tomorrow. But tonight, as I mentioned, it was a balmy 36 degrees. Lots of clouds. We will all drop into the mid 30s on overnight lows tomorrow. High 30s, but it will feel colder. We’re talking wind gusts up to 30 mph, and if we get some strong gusts with snow showers, it could be a blizzard. So, if you get hit by a storm and very heavy snow for a short period of time, it’s enough to reduce visibility and cause some dangerous travel. High temperatures tomorrow will be above 30 degrees Celsius. But again, that’s how it will feel. We’re looking at some cool temperatures in the 20s. This is your cool afternoon wind. What even a cold Monday night would feel like. teens for temperatures. So get the kids ready for school if you are going to school on Tuesday morning. I know some schools there are still a lot of schools open here before Christmas. Here’s a look at those snowstorms. We’re dry all morning and then it comes. Late morning to noon hour again. These short, intense storms can pack less than a half-inch of snow, but it’s enough to cause some problems. Then we leave nicely for Tuesday with plenty of sunshine. But it will be cold for the next couple of days. Then we briefly warm up as winter approaches. The draw took place on Thursday, the temperature was in the low 50s and then it was a bit unstable heading into next weekend, so not a big deal heading into tomorrow, but enough to get ready if you’re under a lot of pressure.
