Today is a WKYT First Alert Severe Weather Day

 
Today is a WKYT First Alert Severe Weather Day

The wintry mess we have been talking about has arrived in parts of Kentucky. Initially, most of us will see plain old rain. Around noon (Give or take a half hour) and through evening we'll see a transition over to the freezing rain throughout the entire area.


A WINTER STORM WARNING runs through Monday afternoon for most of us. The warning will expire later for folks in Southern & Eastern Kentucky.

-Areas along or just north or south of I-64 will begin seeing the transition over to freezing rain during midday.

-The freezing rain will accumulate from .10"-.50" in Central Kentucky. The southern counties could see ice accumulations of .25"-.75" and even isolated amounts on the higher side.

-Snow and sleet accumulations will range between a couple of inches in the south to 3"-8" through Central, Northern, and Northeastern Kentucky.

-A zone along the Hal Rogers and Cumberland Parkway could see 2"-6" of snow & sleet.

-The most southern counties could see .25"-.75" of ice with 1" of snow 
and sleet.

This has power outage potential written all over it. Travel this evening isn't advised! We'll have more through the day!
