...Some light snow accumulations expected late tonight through Monday night mainly over the higher elevations...

A fast moving low pressure system will continue its eastward track through eastern Kentucky overnight. Rain will mix with and change to snow first over the highest elevations above 3000 feet late tonight. Snow levels will then gradually descend to the valleys through Monday morning...and begin spreading in from west to east across eastern Kentucky during the day Monday. Some slick spots possible for the early morning commute. Expect snow showers to continue through Monday night as colder air filters in from the northwest.

Total snow accumulations of around 1 inch can be expected across mainly higher elevations above 2000 feet bordering Virginia through the day Monday. Around a half of an inch or less can be expected for the remainder of eastern Kentucky. A few bursts of snow will be possible during this event...quickly reducing visibilities at times. Additionally...falling temperatures Monday afternoon into Monday night...along with any snow covered roads...will make for hazardous travel conditions.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and local media outlets for further details or updates.
