Winter storm warning for eastern Ky.

JACKSON, Ky. (AP) — The National Weather Service is issuing a winter storm warning for much of eastern Kentucky with heavy snow possible this weekend.

A strengthening low pressure system moving along the Gulf Coast on Friday will bring rain that will gradually change to snow by the evening with the heaviest snow likely to fall overnight. Accumulations of 4 to 10 inches are predicted mainly east of line from Inez to Jackson to London, with 2 to 4 inches expected elsewhere.

Difficult travel conditions are expected with possible power outages due to heavy, wet snow.

One to 2 inches of snow are expected for areas east of a line from Frankfort to Tompkinsville. Areas around Lexington down to Liberty and eastward are expected to see accumulations of around 3 inches.

Additional accumulations are possible overnight Saturday before snow exits the region by Sunday morning.

Central Kentucky could also see some snow showers and light accumulation, especially in the north.
