Winter Weather Advisory Through 6AM Sunday
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the entire area until 6 am Sunday.
After a chance for rain, thunderstorms and gusty winds Saturday, an arctic cold front will plunge temperatures into the teens by late tonight. Rain will change to freezing rain or sleet, and then snow, before ending Sunday morning. Light accumulations are possible, but the main impact will be from freezing of any moisture on roads, creating possible slick spots. Flash freezing could also have a thin layer of snow or sleet on top of it.
In addition to the wintry mix, wind chills will quickly fall into the single digits for most of the region by Sunday morning, with "feels like" values in some areas further north close to zero. The overnight low is expected to be around 20 degrees, but Sunday's high is not expected to be more than a few degrees higher.
Temperatures and wind chill values will drop even more Sunday night and Monday morning, when low temperatures will be in the single digits. Wind chill values could be below zero for the entire area. Monday's high will reach the upper 20s.
