Second winter storm approaches

The second winter storm of the week is approaching the Tri-State, and Evansville will likely be on the northern edge of the precipitation.

The National Weather Service has put the immediate Evansville area under a Winter Storm Watch that goes into effect at midnight Thursday.

The watch includes Vanderburgh, Henderson, Warrick, and Spencer counties.

Much of western Kentucky, including the Owensboro and Madisonville areas, face a Winter Storm Warning.

The Weather Service says freezing rain and sleet will move into the region Thursday night and change to snow Friday.

Forecasters are predicting very minor icing in the Evansville area before the transition to snow. Two-to-four inches of snow is possible in Evansville.

Western Kentucky is expected to see heavier amounts of both ice and snow. Forecasters say Madisonville may see a significant ice event, but not as damaging as the 2009 ice storm.

This new storm follows Tuesday night’s snowfall, which dropped more than 3 inches on Evansville and Henderson, 3.5 inches on Owensboro, and up to four inches in Spencer County.
