Through Wednesday night, Madison County has the potential to see an excessive amount of precipitation, according to Matt Dixon, meteorologist with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.
After a warm day today (Tuesday), more snow could be on the way, he said.
“I have a little good news, and that is the high temperatures will reach into the upper 50s on Tuesday, which is the first time that Richmond has seen temperatures that high since Feb. 9,” Dixon said. “Normal highs are usually hovering in the 50s for this time of the year. However, on Tuesday night ,a cold front will be coming through the area.”
Dixon said the county should expect to see snow accumulation during the late hours of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.
“It’s hard to say how much we are expecting, because the (atmospheric) pressure could change at any minute,” he said. “However, there is a good bet that we will see a few inches. Throughout Wednesday and Thursday, temperatures will stay in the low to mid 20s, and overnight will be in the single digits.”
According to Dixon, after the precipitation stops late Wednesday night, the area will stay dry through the weekend.
