Hazardous Weather Outlook For HOPKINS County, Kentucky
204 PM CST Sat Jan 19 2019

 DAY ONE  This Afternoon and Tonight

The heavy rainfall potential continues for mainly western 
Kentucky this afternoon, where localized rainfall totals may be 
enhanced due to a slight chance of thunderstorms. Forecast storm 
total rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches should not cause widespread
flood issues, though some lowland flooding or ponding of water on
roadways may occur. 

As Arctic air surges in on gusty northwest winds, rain will 
change to snow this afternoon and evening. Please refer to the 
Winter Storm Warning and Winter Weather Advisory for specific details
on all the expected impacts as this occurs, which include snow 
accumulations, gusty winds, sub freezing temperatures, and 
bitterly cold wind chills. 

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Sunday through Friday

As rain changes to snow Tuesday night into Wednesday, some
accumulations may be possible.

 SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT  

Spotter reports of snowfall, gusty winds, and associated impacts
can be relayed to your local NWS office.
