The National Weather Service continues to call for a chance of snow in the area Christmas night and Wednesday morning, but just how much and for how long is the big question.
A low pressure system will trek across our general area sometime Tuesday, but where it goes exactly will be the determining factor of if the southern Pennyrile gets snow, ran or a mix.
Forecasters say they expect moderate to heavy accumulations somewhere, but the bullseye appears to be to our north for the time being. Any deviation in the system’s track could mean more snow or no snow for Christian, Todd and Trigg Counties.
Models have been inconsistent in where they place the low pressure system, which will move in from the southern plains northeast through Tennessee and into Kentucky. An influx of cold air will place the northwest portion of precipitation in the “snow zone.”
Any precipitation that does fall will be accompanied by windy conditions and temperatures Wednesday are not forecast to get out of the mid-30’s.
