Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Russell County Tonight

Good Wednesday morning, everyone. Temperatures went over the freezing mark on Tuesday and coupled with the sunshine, we were able to get a lot of the snow out of here from the winter storm that moved through on Sunday. We are now focusing on the next system that will impact the region today and could bring some accumulating snowfall later this evening and into the overnight hours.

There’s a look at the current alerts for the area. The counties shaded in purple are under a Winter Weather Advisory that will go into effect tonight and it does include Russell County. The National Weather Service in Louisville issued this yesterday for counties to our north and west, but with the latest model trends that Advisory has been expanded to include the rest of the Lake Cumberland Area. A cold front will move into the area later on bringing a good chance of showers for this afternoon and early evening. Temperatures will crash later tonight and that will switch that rain to snow as that front moves through.


There’s a look at the latest model trends from the GFS and NAM. You can see that area of rain making the switch to snow as temperatures quickly drop. The better chance for more accumulating snow will be for Central Kentucky.


There’s a look at my latest snowfall projections. I always like to put in that caveat that things could change. Some areas could see higher amounts especially to our north. I will keep a close watch on this and make adjustments as needed. Have a great day!
