Forecast update on tonight’s snow

Well, winter weather advisories have been issued for folks to our west, but the NWS did not feel inclined to include most of the Cumberland Plateau. The closest counties included were Overton (Livingston) and Picket. This is a rather low-confidence forecast, so things could still change a bit, and it’s not out of the question that more plateau counties could be added to the advisory in the morning. Snow is currently developing across western Kentucky. Our snow should develop by Monday morning. The snow is expected to be very light, with accumulations at or under an inch. Here are the latest maps put out by the NWS Nashville office.

As you can see, the winter weather advisories are north of I-40 (as expected from this morning’s post) but do not include the plateau (an unexpected NWS decision).

Rain is changing to snow across KY at 7:45 p.m. The majority of that snow looks to stay in Kentucky tonight, with the plateau being brushed by its southern edge.
