The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for western Kentucky and Montgomery and Stewart counties in middle Tennesse from Wednesday afternoon through 6 p.m. Thursday.
Speaking with WHOP News Tuesday afternoon, National Weather Service in Paducah Warning Coordination Meteorologist Rick Shanklin said he expects rain to change over to a mix of sleet, snow and possibly freezing rain sometime Wednesday afternoon and continue into Thursday morning.
He says some locations in the Hopkinsville area could see one to two inches of snow and minor ice accumulations, which he says could cause significant travel impacts with slick road conditions.
Shanklin says it’s unusual to see wintry weather like this in November.
