The first real taste of winter weather is forecast for tomorrow, with up to two inches of snow forecast for western Kentucky.
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter Weather Advisory beginning at 6am Thursday and running through midnight for all of western Kentucky. Snow is expected to push into far western Kentucky around daybreak and make its way eastward through the day.
Forecasts for this event have varied over the last several days, so a lot could change by the time the event is through. Forecasters also say north winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour and higher gusts will cause some visibility problems during the snow showers.
It will the first time this winter area residents will be driving on snow covered roadways if the forecast holds true and Hopkinsville Police Public Information Officer Paul Ray reminds motorists to take it “low and slow” and to look out for other drivers.

Kentucky State Police responded to a fatal wreck that occurred early this morning in Muhlenberg County.
According to state police, the wreck occurred approximately at 8:25 a.m. on U.S. 4-31 about half a mile south of Central City.
Police identified the fatal victim as 32-year old David Blake of Belton, Kentucky who at the time of the two vehicle wreck was not wearing a seat belt.
According to police, 45-year old Marty Garrett of Greenville was driving a coal truck northbound on U.S. 4-31 when the vehicle driven by Blake veered into the northbound lane and hit the coal truck head-on.
As a result of the wreck, police say Blake’s vehicle hit a guardrail and came to rest in the northbound lane facing west, while the coal truck caught fire and came to rest in the roadway blocking both lanes of traffic.
Blake was pronounced dead at the scene by Muhlenberg County Coroner Tony Armour and Garrett was transported by a privately owned vehicle to the Muhlenberg Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
