Western Kentucky likely to see highest amounts

The Tri-State’s first accumulating snow of the season is expected Thursday. WNIN’s John Gibson has more:

The National Weather Service says a system will spread light to moderate snow across the region.

Temperatures are expected to range from the upper teens to the mid-20s, so the snow should quickly accumulate.

Forecasters say the highest amounts are expected across western Kentucky where amounts of 1 to 3 inches are possible.

Amounts are expected to decrease north of the Ohio River, with about 2 inches possible in the Evansville area.

The weather service predicts the snow will develop Thursday morning, with peak intensity occurring during the late morning and early afternoon.

The snow is forecast to taper off during the mid to late afternoon.

Behind the system, the coldest air of the season is set to arrive Thursday night. Wind chills into the single digits to below zero are forecast by Friday morning.
