LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Snowfall across a large portion of northern and central Kentucky is starting to taper off.
The National Weather Service says total accumulations are expected to range from around 3 inches to 8 inches.
Forecasters say areas in south-central and eastern Kentucky are expected to have mixed precipitation including rain, snow and freezing rain that will transition to snow before tapering off later this morning. Snowfall totals are expected to be an inch or less, but there will also be an accumulation of ice.
Meanwhile, the Kentucky Department of Transportation says roads crews have been plowing and salting roadways, but conditions vary and officials urge motorists to use extreme caution while traveling.
The wintry weather led several school districts and some universities to cancel classes.
