Today’s mild weather could take a drastic turn for the worse, if weather forecasters are accurate.
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a special weather statement calling for a probability of rain, sleet and snow Thursday night and into Friday.
Rain, possibly mixed with sleet and then snow, will begin Thursday night through Friday, as colder air moves into the area from northwest to southeast across the region.
Meteorologist Beau Dodson said the system has the potential to produce quite a bit of precipitation, though at press time he said it was too early to speculate on amounts.
“I am expecting a variety of winter weather advisories, watches and warnings to eventually be issued for the region,” said Dodson. “These would likely start to be issued on Wednesday or Wednesday night for the time period through Thursday night and Friday.”
Dodson said another waive of winter precipitation is possible on Sunday.
“I suspect that wave could bring snow to most of the area. Accumulating snow is not out of the question,” he said.
