More Winter Weather Headed Our Way
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for our area, expecting two to four inches of snow to fall Friday evening into Saturday. The NWS reports that a low pressure system will move from the Tennessee Valley to the upper Ohio Valley tonight and will spread precipitation across the region this evening into the overnight hours.
That precipitation is expected to be all snow mainly north of the Ohio River and will begin as a rain and snow mix near the south of the river before becoming all snow after midnight. That snow will taper off to snow showers by Saturday afternoon, the NWS predicts.
All Northern Kentucky counties are included in the advisory which goes into effect at 7:00 p.m. Friday and expires at 1:00 p.m. Saturday.
The NWS expects accumulations of two to three inches with isolated amounts of around four inches. Expect snow-covered roads and reduced visibility.
