Tuesday night update on Wednesday night's winter storm [video blog]

15 minute video blog embedded below with details on the Wednesday night winter storm as we see them as of 7pm Tuesday night.

Details continue to come together, though some model solutions still seem to be a little questionable. Despite that, impacts are expected to be significant Wednesday night and Thursday. The main change from previous updates is a delayed onset of winter precipitation and slightly enhanced precipitation amounts.

And for those that want the bottom line, a few graphics:

Approximate position of the freezing line indicated by black dashes, indicating roughly when precipitation changes from rain to freezing rain, followed a few hours later by sleet, then snow after midnight.

Bitterly cold temperatures will end the week, followed by a steady warming trend. Roads should improve markedly (especially primary roads and interstates) on Friday with March sun and some traffic.

More updates Wednesday and throughout the event... follow us on social media and MemphisWeather.net.
