Kentucky Press News Service Story
(FRIDAY 23 Mar 2017) - It's Kentucky - the land of crazy, mixed-up weather. This weekend could be a prime example as a springtime weather system moves in that could dump lots of rain, some snow and even some sleet over portions of the Bluegrass state.
Precipitation is expected to develop across central Kentucky tonight. In areas west of I-65, a cold rain is expected, according to the National Weather Service. However, in areas north and east of a line from Scottsburg, Indiana to Richmond, Kentucky, the precipitation may start off as snow with some accumulation possible late tonight.
Across central Kentucky and southern Indiana, 1 to 2 inches of rain with locally 3 inches, is possible on Saturday. This could result in rises on smaller streams and creeks, and some urban hydro problems.
Showers and thunderstorms will be possible at times next week. Some heavy rain is possible, though there is some uncertainty in amounts and timing at this time, NWS said.
In a region including the Kentucky cities of Georgetown, Cynthiana, Paris and Carlisle, snow mixed with sleet at times will continue Saturday morning before transitioning to plain rain by the afternoon. Snowfall accumulations of 3 to 5 inches with locally higher amounts will be possible in the watch area.
In eastern Kentucky, the weather service office in Jackson said snow accumulations near 1 inch will be possible tonight. Expect slushy and slippery road conditions in the region.
Meanwhile, additional snowfall of 1 to 3 inches, with localized amounts of near 4 inches from Flemingsburg to Sandy Hook, will be possible Saturday morning through Saturday evening. Untreated and shaded roads may remain slushy and slippery.
Rainfall and melting snow may lead to high water issues in some spots this weekend.
In western Kentucky, the weather service said there is a chance of thunderstorms late tonight across much of the area. Severe weather is not expected.
A few thunderstorms are possible Saturday, then again late Sunday night through Tuesday. Locally heavy rainfall and lightning will be the primary concerns.
Multiple rounds of showers and some thunderstorms will result in heavy rainfall over the region Monday through Thursday. Some flooding issues may eventually develop where the heaviest rains occur, the NWS website reports.
