The Winter Weather Advisory has been expanded again and now includes all counties in the area. Anyone could see up to 2" of snow late today into tonight, which is expected to cause some hazardous travel conditions. Freezing of roads overnight Wednesday could make for slippery roads Thursday morning as well.

Chief Meteorologist Jennifer Schack will have the latest on the winter weather tonight at 5, 6, and 11 this evening.

The Winter Weather Advisory has been expanded through Kentucky and now includes all local counties except Rockcastle, Pulaski, Laurel, Wayne, Whitley, and McCreary counties. Locations inside the advisory could see up to 2 inches of snow. Advisories further west will expire at 8 Wednesday evening while counties further east will remain under an advisory until Thursday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for much of the Bluegrass and eastern Kentucky from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday evening. Advisories issued for further eastern Kentucky run through Thursday morning. These areas could see an inch or more of snow late this afternoon and tonight, making for hazardous travel conditions.


Rain is falling across the entire area this morning with temperatures near 40 degrees. Temperatures will drop this afternoon as the colder part of the storm system moves into our area. Along with our soggy weather, strong winds gusting up to 30mph will make it feel even colder in the first half of the day.

By 4 to 5 p.m. rain will begin to switch over to snow. While accumulations won't go much higher than an inch, hazardous travel conditions will be possible late this afternoon and into the evening.
Light snow will continue for some late tonight into Thursday morning as temps drop into the mid 20's.

By Thursday afternoon, we will dry out with afternoon highs in the mid 30s. Winds will be lighter, out of the northwest 5-10 mph.
