...Rounds of Light Snow Through Early Saturday Morning...

Two rounds of light snow are expected as disturbances move
through the Ohio Valley. Generally less than half of an inch of
accumulation is expected from late tonight through noon on Friday
as the first disturbance moves through the area. Localized amounts
of up to one inch may occur on some ridgetops south of KY Highway
80 and the Hal Rogers Parkway.

As much as one inch is expected from Friday evening into Friday
night as the second disturbance moves across eastern Kentucky. The
highest accumulations and greatest travel impacts should occur on
the higher ridgetops.

Those traveling late tonight through Friday morning and from
Friday evening into early Saturday morning should slow down and
allow extra time to reach your destination. Be alert for snow
covered patches or slick spots, especially on secondary roads,
bridges, or overpasses.
