Wintry weather will make its way into the region late in the day on Friday (Christmas Eve), prompting a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for most of Southern Illinois and Southeast Missouri. This advisory will go into effect on Noon Friday and continue through Noon on Christmas Day.
While snow showers are expected across all of the area Friday night into Christmas Day, accumulating snow will be more likely along and northwest of the Ohio River. 1-3 inches of snow is expected in the advisory area. An inch or less is expected in areas South of the Ohio River, including the Purchase of Western Kentucky, NW Tennessee, and the Missouri Bootheel.
The Kentucky Department of Transportation has been pre-treating roadways in Western Kentucky in advance of the wintry weather as heavy travel is expected during the holiday weekend. They encourage motorists to allow extra time during inclimate weather.
