Special Statement

Statement as of 4:10 PM EDT on October 30, 2014

Expires 5:00 AM EDT on October 31, 2014


... First snow of the season expected for much of the area Friday
night into Saturday...

A developing area of low pressure will send a strong cold front south
across eastern Kentucky late Friday into Friday night. This low
pressure system and associated cold front will produce periods of
precipitation from Friday into Saturday night. Temperatures are
expected to drop sharply Friday evening into the overnight hours.
These falling temperatures... will allow rain to mix with and
gradually change to snow... starting in the highest elevations along
the Virginia border early Friday evening. Snow levels will lower
through the night with valley locations possibly mixing with and
changing to snow towards dawn Saturday. In addition to the cold and
snowy conditions... winds will be brisk behind the cold front with
some gusts up to 25 mph Friday evening possible.

At this time... most of the snow accumulation will be in areas above
1500 feet... where 1 to 3 inches of snow will be possible. The
highest elevations in far eastern Kentucky... above 3000 feet... could
see locally higher amounts in the 3 to 6 inch range and a Winter
Weather Advisory is now in effect for the counties that border
Virginia Friday night into Saturday. Most of the snow accumulations
will reside on grassy and elevated surfaces due to warm ground
temperatures. Little if any snow accumulation is expected across the
Bluegrass region or in valley locations.

In addition... freezing temperatures are expected Friday night...
Saturday night... and Sunday night. A hard freeze may occur in the I-75
corridor Saturday night... with a hard freeze and frost expected
area-wide Sunday night. Those with sensitive plants will need to take
action to protect them through the weekend.
