The National Weather Service announced a winter weather advisory for Central Kentucky from 1 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

Accumulation and limited visibility from snow showers could impact morning travel, according to the National Weather Service in Louisville.

Meteorologist Rick Lasher said the Lexington area could expect between 1 and 2 inches early Saturday.

The heaviest snowfall is expected to end by late morning or early afternoon, with flurries possibly continuing throughout the day.

Areas north of Fayette County could see accumulation as well, Lasher said. The snow may reach into Madison County, but counties further south should only see light snow or rain, he said.

Weekend lows are expected to be in the 20s, and highs in the mid-30s, several degrees below the average for this time of year. The cold is expected to carry into next week, with nighttime lows possibly dipping into the teens.

"It's not record-breaking, but nonetheless unseasonably cold," Lasher said.
