BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) — We’re ending the work week on a quiet note for us here in south-central Kentucky. Mostly cloudy skies will set in this evening with temperatures reaching a low of 30 degrees.
Showers will be possible as well as a few isolated showers overnight until early Saturday morning. All forms of precipitation are possible for the entire WBKO viewing area over the weekend. This is all due to a low pressure system coming from the Rocky Mountains which will bring wintry weather late Saturday evening into Sunday – which is why we have issued an initial weather warning for this period. We could see a wintry mix accompanied by some snowfall late Saturday night (affecting our southern counties first), before it turns into mostly snowfall Sunday morning and afternoon. It will change to a rain/snow mix with the potential for ice pellets and freezing rain through Sunday evening. Counties south and east of I-65 will see the greatest risk of significant snowfall accumulations. The sharp cut off of the most northwestern side of this system will determine how dangerous conditions could become. Either way, commuters should beware of dangerous road conditions, especially through Sunday. As such, these are our PRELIMINARY snowfall forecasts, and they will be updated as new data arrives.
SUBJECT TO CHANGE, our first call on total snow accumulations is as follows:
- TRACE to 1″ of snow can be expected for northern Breckenridge, Calhoun, northern Hardin, Hopkins, northern Muhlenberg and northern portions of Ohio counties.
- 1″ to 3″ of snow can be expected for North Allen, West Barren, Butler, Christian, Edmonson, Grayson, South Hardin, Hart, Larue, Logan, South Muhlenberg, southern Ohio, northern Simpson, Todd, and Warren counties.
- 3″ to 5″ of snowfall with locally higher amounts possible can be expected for Adair, central and southern Allen, eastern Barren, Clinton, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Monroe, Russell, southern Simpson, Taylor counties in Kentucky and Clay, Macon, Robertson and Sumner counties in Tennessee.
Temperatures will hover near freezing through Sunday, providing favorable conditions for snow to stick to the ground. The blustery conditions will also make it feel FRIGID until Sunday evening, with temperature sensations plunging into the teens! The start of next week will see sunshine and cold air, with highs flirting with the upper 30s through Monday, before seeing a mid-week warming.
