A First Alert Severe Weather Day starts at noon and runs until further notice. Rounds of storms increase today and carry us through the night. Heavy rains will be likely and that may cause additional flooding problems.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is now out for much of eastern and southeastern Kentucky late tonight into Tuesday. A fast moving system will bring a swath of snow to the bluegrass state overnight.
The highest totals will be across the east and southeast with 1"-2" being fairly common. Parts of southeastern Kentucky could see amounts nearing 4" in a few spots before the snow wraps up Tuesday afternoon.
Central sections of the state will likely miss out on the worst of the weather, but local coatings to an inch will be possible.
The timing of the arrival of the snow will make for some slick travel on Tuesday morning and I suspect several school delays and cancellations.
Much colder air moves in by late Wednesday into Thursday. That's when we turn our attention to another storm system for the weekend. This one looks like rain to snow showers for much of the area.
