According to a Special Weather Statement issued by the National Weather Service out of Paducah, in addition to the dangerously cold temperatures across the quad state region, another round of light snow or flurries is expected to work southeast across the region this evening.
Up to a quarter inch or so of light, fluffy snow is expected with this next round of snow late this afternoon and tonight. The best chances for accumulating snow will be during the evening hours.
Given surface temperatures that are well below freezing, any light snow that falls on the roadways could cause a very thin layer of ice to form. This may generate slick spots on roadways, making travel somewhat hazardous at times.
Please use extra caution while driving today and tonight. Allow some extra time to reach your destination.
Experts advise that given the cold temperatures, you should be sure that your vehicle is in top shape and make sure that you have a winter survival kit available in your vehicle, should you become stranded on the road.
