...Snow Expected to Develop Friday Night and Continue For Parts
of the Area into Saturday...

Accumulating snow is expected to develop Friday night and continue
into Saturday. The snow will mix with and change to rain for most
places late Friday night into Saturday. However, locations
generally along and north of Interstate 64 will likely stay as
snow the longest and could see a couple of inches of wet
accumulation by mid day Saturday. Most other places will see a
slushy inch or less accumulation and mainly just on grassy
and elevated surfaces. As the snow transitions to rain across the
area some sleet or a touch of freezing rain will be possible for
a brief period time. Currently, there remains some uncertainty
with the depth of the cold air expected to be in place across
northeast Kentucky affecting the transition times for snow to
rain throughout the area. This will have a big impact on actual
snow accumulations. Stay tuned for further updates on this
upcoming winter weather situation.
