Central Kentucky could receive a wintry mix of snow, ice and rain Tuesday night and into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service has issued a winter weather advisory from 10 p.m. Tuesday to 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Lexington will receive less than an inch of snow, the weather service predicted, but ice could make for difficult driving conditions. Lexington could get 0.06 inches of ice while Cynthiana could receive closer to 0.18 inches.
“The ice and snow will result in difficult travel conditions, including the morning commute on Wednesday,” the weather service advisory said.
The projections are based on where the storm tracks. According to its latest snowfall model, the weather service shows Lexington in the southern range of the wintry mix zone. Areas south of Lexington will mostly receive rain, according to the weather service.
The wintry mix will begin Tuesday evening, WKYT meteorologist Chris Bailey said, and will become heavy overnight and into Wednesday morning.
Heavy rainfall of 1 inch to 2.5 inches is possible across Southern and Eastern Kentucky, Bailey said.
“Those kind of numbers on a semi-frozen ground can produce extensive runoff that can cause some flooding,” he said.
Areas of Northern Kentucky have the best chance of snow accumulation, Bailey said, with a few inches possible.
