...Wintry mix of weather expected tonight across portions of central Kentucky...
A fast moving Alberta clipper will move from the mid-Mississippi Valley today to the central Appalachians by Thanksgiving morning. As this system passes through the region late this afternoon and tonight...it will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to much of central Kentucky.
Precipitation is expected to break out across western Kentucky this afternoon in the form of rain showers. This activity will then spread eastward into central and south-central Kentucky this evening. As the evening wears on...the rain will mix with and eventually change over to snow before diminishing toward sunrise Thursday.
Surface temperatures are expected to remain above freezing while the wintry mix falls...which will limit accumulations. However...a minor accumulation of an inch or less of slushy snow will be possible on grassy and elevated surfaces. The area most favored to see the slushy accumulations is that part of central Kentucky along and south of a line from Owensboro to Liberty Kentucky.
As the precipitation ends as flurries near dawn Thursday morning...surface temperatures will approach the freezing mark. Should this occur...some slick spots may develop on area roadways.
