The "F" word... againPosted Monday, January 21, 2013, at 5:43 PM
Our new weathermaker, Winter Storm "Vixen", is poised to bring freezing rain Thursday night, although the forecast could easily change at least 37 times between now and then.
The Paducah NWS office issued this bulletin today:
..WINTRY WEATHER POSSIBLE THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY
The last time the "F" word was in the forecast, the ground was fairly warm following 60-degree weather, keeping the freezing rain confined to elevated surfaces. This time we may not be so lucky, with the temperature dropping into the teens tonight and tomorrow night in advance of the storm.
On the other hand, the approaching storm -- like so many systems over the last year -- is likely to be hampered by a lack of moisture.
At this point, I think it's a little too early to raid the bakery aisles.
