Thursday night and early Friday’s snow, along with wind-chilly temperatures brought a white blanket over the region. Slick roads and closed schools were the order of the day Friday, but we’re not done with the Arctic blast for the rest of this weekend.
That’s because Friday night, the National Weather Service Office in Jackson put the Tri County region under a Winter Weather Advisory from 9 a.m. today (Saturday) to 10 a.m. Sunday.
The Winter Weather Advisory also covers the rest of Kentucky east of Louisville and I-65, as well as the bordering counties of Campbell, Scott and Claiborne in Tennessee.
The reason for the snow today? It’s another cold front, a fast moving “clipper system” just like the one that got the area Thursday night. This one’s primed and ready to move through Kentucky and the Ohio Valley this morning, and slide through our part of the state as night begins to fall.
Snow will develop this morning with a period of snow expected during the day, which mix with or change to rain for a while this afternoon or evening. While there may be a pause in the precipitation this afternoon or evening, numerous to widespread snow showers should move across the region tonight.
Around two inches of snow is expected today, with another inch anticipated tonight. As a result, total snow accumulations of around three inches are forecast by late tonight. Some deeper valley locations could receive less snow, while some higher elevations could receive more snow. Many locations will warm above freezing this afternoon, which will limit snow accumulations this afternoon and evening.
Meteorologists said as a result, roads will likely become snow covered or slick at times through late tonight, which will lead to longer travel times. They add if you plan on driving today, use caution and be prepared for snow covered road and limited visibilities.
