BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) – We had another cold and cloudy day with highs only in the 20s! Tonight we have freezing drizzle to the east of I-65, so watch for slick spots especially on rural or untreated roads!
Valentine’s Day (Sunday) starts out dry, but moisture ahead of our next potent weather system arrives Sunday evening. Expect it to be a wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain as it develops late Sunday. One wave of moisture is expected to move through Sunday night into Monday morning, with the next wave arriving Monday evening and exiting Tuesday morning. We could wind up with substantial amounts of snow and ice before the system moves out Tuesday! As it stands, our western and northwestern sections look to stay mainly snow, with more icing possible east and southeast of Bowling Green. Either way, this looks to be a very impactful system for our region, with hazardous travel and possible power outages on the table Monday into Tuesday.
We catch a small break before yet ANOTHER possible winter storm arrives Wednesday night into Thursday. It’s too soon to get into specifics regarding this system, but a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet, and snow appears possible once again.
Keep checking back with the First Alert Weather Team both on-air and online as we track very active weather in the days ahead!
