Winter Weather Advisory

The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for our region, effective today at noon and running until 6 am tomorrow morning.  A storm system moving east out of the central plains will spread snow and possibly freezing rain across the Four Rivers.  Although snow and ice accumulations are not expected to be significant, there could be enough to affect travel across the area.  Whatever accumulation the region receives, forecasters say it won’t hang around long.  Highs tomorrow are expected to rise into the low 40s.
