Wintry precipitation is still in the forecast for this weekend, but the National Weather Service says it’s looking less likely it will be a major storm.
Rick Shanklin is the warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service Paducah and says the main event will be Saturday night and Sunday morning.
At least an inch or two of snow and sleet is possible in Christian, Todd and Trigg counties and Shanklin says travel impacts are likely Sunday morning with whatever wintry precipitation falls.
Temperatures should creep above freezing Sunday afternoon and begin to melt any snow and ice.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet has begun pre-treating some major highways in western Kentucky and Christian County Road Department Superintendent Paul Finley says they’re gearing up and preparing to respond.
