Locally heavy rainfall is possible late tonight. Rainfall rates

as the slight chance for thunderstorms. Rainfall rates may be

river, across western Kentucky. While overall average forecast storm
total rainfall amounts of 1 to 1.5 inches should not cause
widespread flood issues, some low land or prone area flooding or

or streams as well.

Rain will change to snow as Arctic air slams in from the northwest
during the Saturday afternoon and evening hours. A winter weather

...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM NOON SATURDAY TO
MIDNIGHT CST SATURDAY NIGHT...

* WHAT...Rain will change to snow Saturday afternoon into Saturday
  night. Accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher
  amounts possible, are expected across the north, with generally
  less than 1 inch amounts across the south.

* WHERE...1 to 2 inch accumulations are expected mainly north of
  the Ohio river. Locally higher amounts upwards to 3 inches may
  occur along and north of a Perryville, Missouri, to Mount
  Vernon, Illinois line. Generally less than 1 inch amounts are
  expected south of the Ohio river.

* WHEN...Rain will change to Snow Saturday afternoon for most
  places north of the Ohio river. South of the Ohio river, rain
  will change to snow toward the end of the day Saturday, into
  Saturday evening.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...This potent weather system will bring an
  Arctic blast of air with a myriad of impacts. Strong and gusty
  winds will impact travel and also bring in cold air with single
  digit to lower teens wind chills. Plunging sub freezing
  temperatures will create flash freeze and black ice potential
  for any residual ground or roadway moisture. In addition, winds
  may produce reduced visibility where blowing snow is moderate to
  heavy.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow...sleet...or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities...and use caution while
driving.

A winter weather advisory for blowing snow means that
visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow
around. Use caution when traveling...especially in open areas.
