Snow will move in soon

Everything looks to be right on track for a significant round of snow across parts of Kentucky. Unlike some of the other rounds we have experienced this season, this has more of a wet and heavy concern. That means more stress on trees and powerlines.

-The rain will finally make a transition over to snow between 5pm & 8pm in many areas. It will take even longer to switch in southern and eastern Kentucky.

-The snow bands could produce 1" to 3" of snow per hour. Those are intense rates!

-With high rates of snow... any warming that happened within the past few days will be thrown out the window. That will allow for quick accumulations.

-With saturated soil and numerous wind events during the past few months.. tress will be a little more susceptible to the heavy wet snow.

-The system wraps up on Monday morning with final totals ranging from as low as one inch in the south to 10" or even more in isolated locations along the eastern sections of I-64.
