Winter Storm Watch in Effect Through Thursday Evening
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - ...WINTER STORM WATCH NOW IN EFFECT FROM LATE TONIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...
Areas North of the Bluegrass Parkway are seeing some light snow accumulations early this morning, stretching from Elizabethtown into Louisville and East into Lexington. South Central Ky missed the first wave of wintry precip, but more chances are yet to come. Much of Tuesday appears dry with mostly cloudy skies and near seasonal temps, but By late tonight, overrunning moisture ahead of our next system will advance into South-Central KY. Expect a mix of rain and freezing rain with temps hovering around 32 for a while Wednesday morning. As warmer air tries to nudge northward, we may see the mix go over to mostly rain from Bowling Green southward. To the north, however, freezing rain is likely to continue. This will put a glaze on outdoor objects, including trees and power lines, with power outages a possibility along with hazardous travel. The wintry mix lingers through Wednesday night into much of Thursday before finally tapering off. Highs drop into the 30s Thursday as colder air moves southward.
Our Valentine’s/President’s Day weekend looks VERY cold! Highs drop into the low 30s Saturday, with only 20s expected Sunday. Overnight lows will plunge into the teens this weekend!
