Lexington and northern parts of Kentucky could see as much as 5 inches of snow as a winter storm moves across the state Thursday.
The National Weather Service put out a winter storm warning that was to start early Thursday morning and run through 1 a.m. Friday.
Snow should begin falling heavily in Lexington around daybreak, with noticeable accumulation around 11 a.m. The storm will likely dump between 3 and 5 inches of snow on the Bluegrass, Louisville Meteorologist Rick Lasher said.
Southern counties in Kentucky could see less accumulation, closer to 2 or 3 inches, he said.
Cold temperatures are also expected. The weather service is forecasting lows in the teens and highs in the 20s and 30s through Saturday.
