The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter Storm WARNING in effect from 6:00 this evening until Noon Wednesday.

Around 2:00 this afternoon, the National Weather Service in Paducah held a teleconference regarding two winter events that will impact the quad-state region beginning tonight.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Rick Shanklin says our region could get several inches of snowfall by Wednesday.

For our area, he says wintry precipitation will begin between 9 o’clock tonight and midnight with moderate to heavy snowfall by early Wednesday morning.

And due to the cold temperatures, Shanklin indicates we won’t see much melting.

System number 2 will move into the area Thursday night into Friday bringing a mixed bag of precipitation to the quad-state region.

By the time both systems move through the quad-state region, Shanklin says total snowfall amounts could range from 4 inches to 12 inches.
