Tuesday Winter System Expected To Be Wet

It appears the Pennyrile region may avoid the brunt of the second winter storm of the week. During a conference call Monday afternoon, Chris Noth, with the National Weather Service in Paducah, gave the breakdown for a Winter Storm Watch that had been issued for Tuesday.

The counties in western Kentucky that are covered by the watch include McCracken, Livingston, Crittenden, Union, and Webster. During the briefing, Noth compared the weather system coming in Tuesday to the one that blanketed the area with snow, sleet, and ice Sunday and Sunday night.

As it has been for a couple of the recent weather systems, forecasters have not been able to get a good grasp on the system until it gets here.

The good news for the Pennyrile region is that this appears to be a mainly rain event, but it could be a soggy one at that. Noth added that the system could bring over an inch of rain for the area Tuesday and Tuesday night.
