Fresh on the heels of Sunday’s snowfall, more snow and cold weather is headed for Kentucky.
Much of Central Kentucky is covered by a winter weather advisory calling for 1 to 2 inches of snow from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 8 a.m. Thursday. Three inches of snowfall is possible in some areas, the National Weather Service in Louisville said Tuesday afternoon.
The precipitation will begin as light rain Wednesday morning, then switch over to snow or a wintry mix as temperatures fall from the 40s Wednesday afternoon to about 20 by sunup Thursday morning.
Commuters should be prepared for hazardous road conditions Thursday morning, the weather service said.
Sunshine will return Thursday and through the weekend. But highs for Lexington Thursday and Friday will be in the mid and upper 20s, with a windchill of about 8 degrees Thursday and overnight lows of 12 and 10, according to the weather service.
