Storm to deliver several inches of snow to Eastern Kentucky

Kentucky Press News Service

An approaching storm will apparently only deliver a glancing blow to Central Kentucky on Sunday while dumping up to several inches of snow over Eastern Kentucky.

The National Weather Service office in Jackson has issued a winter storm warning through 9 p.m. Sunday for Eastern Kentucky. Snow will be heavy at times and mixed with sleet during the middle part of the day, the NWS said. Two to 4 inches of snow will fall in the valleys and 3 to 5 inches on higher elevations. And amounts of up to 6 inches are possible in some areas.

Travel will be difficult, NWS said.

Meanwhile, areas from Bowling Green to Campbellsville and up to Lexington will probably see an inch or less of snow. A winter weather advisory remains in effect through late afternoon for this region of the state.
