NWS Issues Special Weather Statement About Hazardous Travel Conditions Overnight
The first snow day at home with kids is kind of delightful. You go outside and play, bake cookies, snuggle in, and watch movies. Day two, you don't really mind if they spend three hours watching StupidKidShow and send them outside with the dog that doesn't really want to be a playmate. By day three, you hand over the remote with zero restrictions, feed them five-day-old pizza for lunch, and lock yourself in a room with a bucket of ice cream that you swear is "too spicy for them to eat."
I'm on day two. As I write this, my daughter is doing my hair in the ugliest hairstyles she can fathom and then she takes photos of my reaction to my ugliness. I'm a living walking Barbie doll but with no makeup. I haven't showered since Monday. I have lost track of all time. This is fun, right? RIGHT?
If you haven't heard, some parts of the tri-state could be in for a light wintry mix tonight. Oh joy. Oh rapture.
After reading the NWS forecast, I don't think that the Evansville - Owensboro area will see much of an impact but the current ice will melt a little and then refreeze. I fully expect that they'll call school again and days three and, oh God no, FOUR will be brutal.
From the NWS:
Light freezing rain is possible across portions of southeast Missouri, west Kentucky and extreme southern Illinois late tonight. Minor ice accumulations may occur along the Missouri/Arkansas and Kentucky/Tennessee borders, with possible impacts on road conditions. Please continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
