Snow showers follow the ice storm- UPDATE

Update

Good evening. Snow is causing massive travel problems across the region. Many roads are snow and ice covered  and this will continue to be a big issue into tonight. A Winter Weather Advisory is now out for eastern Kentucky. Here’s a look:

Warnings

Take care.

Good Wednesday, folks. Our major ice storm is winding down, and it’s leaving behind a lot of serious problems. Tens of thousands of folks lost power overnight, and a lot of trees and tree limbs were knocked down because of the ice. High water also was reported across parts of the area, and flood warnings are out for early Wednesday morning.

The rest of our day will see snow showers and snow squalls kicking into high gear. These can put down light accumulations that can cause additional travel troubles for some. Winds will continue to gust, and that’s not good news for all the trees caked in ice. Temps will start in the low 30s and then crash through the 20s from west to east.

Thursday looks cold, with a few flurries or light snow showers. Highs will be in the upper teens and low 20s. Lows by Friday morning will reach the single digits, and highs will be only in the teens.

A set of systems will bring light snow our way this weekend, with the possibility of storms being pushed into early next week.
