Special Statement


... Wintry mix of weather expected tonight across portions of
central Kentucky...

A fast moving Alberta clipper will move from the mid-Mississippi
Valley today to the central Appalachians by Thanksgiving morning.
As this system passes through the region late this afternoon and
tonight... it will bring a wintry mix of precipitation to much of
central Kentucky.

Precipitation is expected to break out across western Kentucky
this afternoon in the form of rain showers. This activity will
then spread eastward into central and south-central Kentucky this
evening. As the evening wears on... the rain will mix with and
eventually change over to snow before diminishing toward sunrise
Thursday.

Surface temperatures are expected to remain above freezing while
the wintry mix falls... which will limit accumulations. However... a
minor accumulation of an inch or less of slushy snow will be
possible on grassy and elevated surfaces. The area most favored to
see the slushy accumulations is that part of central Kentucky
along and south of a line from Owensboro to Liberty Kentucky.

As the precipitation ends as flurries near dawn Thursday
morning... surface temperatures will approach the freezing mark.
Should this occur... some slick spots may develop on area roadways.

Stay tuned to NOAA all hazards weather radio and your local media
for the latest updates on this winter weather situation.
