Snow is in the forecast for late Friday evening into Saturday for Eastern Kentucky.

Heavy snow a possibility this weekend

Just a few days after a severe cold snap and icy roads caused mayhem in Bell County, the National Weather Service predicts a heavy snow accumulation to move in on Friday evening and extend into Saturday. The brief respite of warmer weather is most likely about to come to an abrupt end.

The snow accumulation is predicted to not just hit Bell County, but all of Eastern Kentucky as well. The quick drop in temperature and rain followed by snow could very well create a repeat of earlier in the week with hazardous road conditions.

There is a prediction of snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches.

In case the prediction turns out to be true, being prepared is the best way to beat the snow. Try to avoid driving in the hazardous conditions if at all possible and if you feel that the snow has a chance of trapping you in your home for a day or so, make sure you have enough supplies to last you until it safely melts away.
