Eastern Kentucky braces for another winter storm


The eastern half of Kentucky is seeing another snow event, just over a week since the last winter storm. The previous snow, with sizeable accumulation, affected a wide swath of the Commonwealth. Jackson Meteorologist Chris Fisher said rain, freezing rain, and snow are all part of this January system. He noted the snow accumulation is expected to measure between four and seven inches. And driving could be challenging once again.

“Especially on secondary roads and bridges and certainly in areas that see a lot of snow in a short period of time, expect that road conditions will get worse as the day goes on,” said Fisher.

Fisher said rainfall in some areas of the state may have washed away chemicals laid down in a pre-emptive measure. The meteorologist expected the heavier snowfall to occur in eastern Kentucky including cities like London, Somerset, Mount Sterling, and Hazard.
