Winter weather expected

-A A +A

A winter storm is expected to cross into Kentucky and bring snow to the region.

Forecasters say Hardin County will see rain changing over to snow today. The latest forecast says local accumulation will be a half inch. Snow is expected into the afternoon but south winds will push temperatures into the 40s.

A winter storm advisory covering 35 counties stretches from Bowling Green to Ashland. LaRue, Hart and Nelson counties are included under the National Weather Service advisory but Hardin and other counties to the north and west are not.

The state's southeastern counties, including much of the mountains, are listed in a more severe winter storm warning. More than five inches of snowfall is anticipated in that area.
