A disturbance moving through the Deep South is producing light precipitation across areas along the Tennessee, Kentucky, and Virginia state line. The precipitation will fall as snow at elevations generally around 2000 feet and higher. While precipitation is expected to fall as rain and/or snow at times below 2000 feet, temperatures will generally remain above freezing. A dusting to a half of an inch is possible for valley locations. The most likely location for accumulations is at elevations above about 2000 feet, where 1 inch is possible, and 2 inches possible above 3000 feet. This may affect travel through mid afternoon at the highest elevations and mountain passes such as Pine and Black Mountains or the Log Mountains of western Bell County. $$ KYZ084>086-110-113-115>117-120-202130- McCreary-Whitley-Knox-Floyd-Knott-Perry-Clay-Leslie-Pike- Including the cities of Stearns, Whitley City, Corbin, Williamsburg, Barbourville, Prestonsburg, Wheelwright, Hindman, Pippa Passes, Hazard, Manchester, Hyden, Coal Run, Elkhorn City, Pikeville, and South Williamson 1120 AM EST Thu Feb 20 2020 ...Light Snow Today... A disturbance moving through the Deep South is producing some light precipitation across portions of the area this morning. While the precipitation will fall as rain and/or snow at times, temperatures will only be marginally cold enough for light snow to accumulate on area ridgetops, and then mainly on the grassy/leafy areas. No more than a dusting, if that, is expected in the valleys. The most likely location for any accumulations would be along ridge top locations generally south of the Hal Rogers Parkway and KY Highway 80, where a half of an inch could accumulate on grassy/leafy areas and elevated surfaces. $$ JP/RAY
