Kentucky is preparing for the likelihood of big snow and ice accumulations this week, with the heaviest snowfall likely to hit starting early Monday afternoon.
Some parts of central Kentucky are expecting to get up to eight inches of snow, with snowfall rates exceeding one-inch-per-hour in parts of the commonwealth.
The National Weather Service also predicts that up to half-an-inch of ice accumulation could occur through tomorrow, in an area of the state south and east of a line from Tompkinsville to Richmond.
Another winter storm system is expected to hit the region Wednesday night, bringing more snow and the potential for added ice.
Kentucky Transportation Cabinet crews will be focused on maintaining mobility on the interstates, parkways, and highly-traveled routes.
