Second Round of Winter Weather will Arrive Today

Dec 28, 2012

The next round of winter weather will arrive later today and likely continue for about 24 hours, according to the National Weather Service office in Louisville. Northcentral Kentucky will see rain this afternoon and it will begin to change over to a mix of rain and snow after sunset tonight. Around midnight, the mix will turn to all snow. Northcentral Kentucky will probably see 1 to 3 inches of snow by Saturday morning, the weather service said. Scattered snow showers could bring an additional inch in spots by Saturday afternoon.

This will make for slick road conditions from tonight through Saturday night.

Northern Kentucky could see 1 to 3 inches during the same period. Some spots could see up to 4 inches, NWS said.

Eastern Kentucky will likely see rain changing to snow flurries on Saturday afternoon. The only areas expected to receive more than an inch of snow through Sunday morning are in higher elevations, the weather service said. Still, road conditions are likely to be slick and motorists should use extreme caution.

Little snowfall is expected in Western Kentucky although a winter weather advisory remains in effect from this afternoon until around sunrise on Saturday, NWS said.
