According to the National Weather Service, the system is expected to move into the Pulaski County area between 4 a.m. and 7 a.m. today. Forecasters expect to see some snow — possibly one to two inches — at first, with a change over to sleet and/or freezing drizzle as it moves east through the afternoon.
Forecasts Thursday called for around .13 of an inch of freezing rain for Pulaski today — which could change depending on how the system acts.
As of Thursday afternoon temperatures hovered around 28 degrees and that was expected to drop into the mid-20s overnight. This morning should see temperatures below 30 degrees. Forecasters have tentatively called for temperatures to hit freezing and maybe even go a bit above that by 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. this afternoon.
But, once again, that depends on how the weather system rolls through.
Local news channel outlets were predicting much the same as of Thursday afternoon, with some noting that southeastern Kentucky could see another round of wintry weather into tomorrow (Saturday) morning as well.
Those predictions could change on the turn of a dime, and Jacobson said people need to stay as up-to-date as possible on the weather situation.
“This weather system has its own personality,” Jacobson said.
