CORRECTED FOR INTERSTATE NUMBER IN WHERE SECTION ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM EST /3 PM CST/ SATURDAY TO 10 AM EST /9 AM CST/ SUNDAY... ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 4 PM EST /3 PM CST/ SATURDAY TO 10 AM EST /9 AM CST/ SUNDAY...

* WHAT...Rain will transition to snow by Saturday evening. Total snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches Saturday night. Winds gusts of 35 to 45 mph.

* WHERE...Southern Indiana and Central Kentucky. The heaviest forecast amounts are along and north of I-64, but bands of heavier snow can form Saturday evening anywhere across the region, bringing higher amounts.

* WHEN...Snow will begin across southern Indiana in the 4 to 7 PM EST time frame Saturday. The transition line will make it to the I-65 corridor in Kentucky anywhere from 8 to 11 PM EST and then to the I-75 corridor anywhere from 11 PM to 2 AM EST early Sunday morning.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Gusty winds with the snowfall Saturday evening and early overnight will make for reduced visibilities and hazardous driving conditions. In addition, wind chill factors will drop into the single digits for most locations by daybreak Sunday.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio or your local media for the latest updates on this situation.

NWS Paducah (Southern Illinois and Indiana, Southeastern Missouri and Western Kentucky)

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON SATURDAY TO MIDNIGHT CST SATURDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Rain will change to snow Saturday afternoon into Saturday night. Accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts possible, are expected across the north, with generally less than 1 inch amounts across the south.

* WHERE...1 to 2 inch accumulations are expected mainly north of the Ohio river. Locally higher amounts upwards to 3 inches may occur along and north of a Perryville, Missouri, to Mount Vernon, Illinois line. Generally less than 1 inch amounts are expected south of the Ohio river.

* WHEN...Rain will change to Snow Saturday afternoon for most places north of the Ohio river. South of the Ohio river, rain will change to snow toward the end of the day Saturday, into Saturday evening.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...This potent weather system will bring an Arctic blast of air with a myriad of impacts. Strong and gusty winds will impact travel and also bring in cold air with single digit to lower teens wind chills. Plunging sub freezing temperatures will create flash freeze and black ice potential for any residual ground or roadway moisture. In addition, winds may produce reduced visibility where blowing snow is moderate to heavy.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow...sleet...or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities...and use caution while driving. A winter weather advisory for blowing snow means that visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow around. Use caution when traveling...especially in open areas.

NWS Nashville (Central Tennessee)

...Heavy Rain and Light Snowfall Likely this Weekend... A major storm system will bring numerous showers and a few thunderstorms to Middle Tennessee on Saturday. Rainfall amounts of 1 to around 2 inches are likely with localized higher amounts possible. Minor flooding of small creeks, streams, low lying areas and other flood prone locations may occur. An Arctic cold front will then bring much colder temperatures to the area Saturday night, changing rain quickly to snow Saturday night and ending across the Cumberland Plateau Region by the mid morning hours on Sunday. Exact snow accumulations still remain somewhat uncertain, but the potential exists for a dusting of snowfall across the south up to a few tenths of an inch for locations north of I-40. The greatest potential for accumulating snowfall will be across the higher elevations of the Cumberland Plateau Region where around one half of an inch of snowfall accumulation is expected. Light snow, along with any leftover standing water on area roadways, bridges and overpasses, could freeze and cause travel difficulties from Saturday evening into Sunday. Stay up to date with the latest forecasts regarding the potential for heavy rain and winter weather as the weekend progresses.
