Weather advisory per Meade County Emergency Management / Ron's Emergency Management Page: The first snowfall of the winter season is expected to develop across the region on Monday. Minor snowfall accumulations are possible, with the highest snowfall amounts (1-2") expected in the Bluegrass region and points north and east.
There are no major forecast changes this morning. Precipitation will begin as all rain this evening and will be moderate to heavy tonight. Minor ponding on roadways looks likely, but significant flooding is not expected.
Colder air will move into the region Monday, and this forecast does nudge the temperatures downward a tad. A rain to snow transition is likely in the morning, with predominantly snow expected in the afternoon and evening. Surface temperatures during the daylight hours on Monday are expected to remain above freezing, though instances of heavier snow showers may result in some slush on area roadways at times.
The best chance for snowfall accumulations still looks to be Monday evening and into Monday night as snowfall is expected to continue and temperatures will fall below freezing. Slick spots on roadways will be possible depending on how fast pavement temperatures drop.
We are continuing to monitor new forecast data as it comes in and modifications to this forecast may be required in subsequent forecast updates. If current forecast trends hold, a Winter Weather Advisory may be required for Monday night and early Tuesday for portions of central and eastern Kentucky.
