Precipitation will begin before Friday night, and will likely transition from light to moderate mix and snow to snow through the morning hours of Saturday. Areas Northeast, South, and West of Berea are expected to encounter a more snow than others, but snow is still a threat everywhere at this point. Temperatures will quickly drop once the cold front enters the state, and temperatures in the low teens can be expected Saturday morning.

Wind Statement: Wind will likely be mild.

Activation: Kentuckians are encouraged to submit reports and photos of ice and snow impacting travel through the night. You can use Twitter #kywx, #ekywx, and for those in Eastern Kentucky, you can tag @EKYVost

Make sure you keep enough fuel in your vehicle in case of an emergency, this will allow you to run your vehicle for heat longer. Additionally, there may be ice and snow on roadways. Use caution, or preferably stay home!
*ICE* Ice is a threat with this storm, especially once roads freeze.
