Forecasters say there's a good chance people in Central and Eastern Kentucky will wake up to a white Christmas.
But Andrea Lammers, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Louisville, said "models have been flip-flopping" in regard to where the heaviest snow would accumulate. Central Kentucky and Southern Indiana may get about 1 to 3 inches between Christmas Eve night and Christmas night.
Most of the accumulation in Central and Eastern Kentucky will occur Friday night, with light snow continuing throughout the day Saturday and Sunday.
Eastern Kentucky is expected to get 1 to 4 inches from Friday night to Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service in Jackson.
White Christmases have been scarce in Lexington recently, according to weather service statistics. Lexington has not received any snow on Christmas since 2005, which only saw a trace of snow. The snowiest Christmas was in 1935 when Lexington got 6.5 inches.
