The Winter Weather Advisory issued by the National Weather Service for Daviess County is on schedule to impact the area beginning at 6 p.m. Friday.
There will be a full range of impact over the area beginning tonight, according to Greg Meffert, lead forecaster at the National Weather Service Paducah.
With temperatures very close to freezing and surface temperatures on roadways already at freezing, Daviess County could experiencing icing once the rain begins.
Beginning around 6 p.m., it will be mixed precipitation — freezing rain, sleet and snow. Snow should begin around 9 p.m. and will become the only form of precipitation for our area at this time.
The transition to rain in the Ohio River Valley may take until 3 a.m., with an accumulation of 2 to 3 inches.
Rain will continue throughout the day and evening Saturday, but motorists need to be aware of refreezing Saturday night. Temperatures will be near freezing and it can’t be ruled out, according to Meffert.
A Winter Weather Advisory for now means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Expect snow covered roads and limited visibilities.
An updated model will be available this afternoon, which Owensboro Times will include at that time.
