There is one more snow event forecast for Caldwell County, but temperatures are expected to go above freezing for the first time in more than a week on Saturday,
National Weather Service meteorologist Mike York of the NWS office in Paducah said that he had not received any snow reports from Caldwell County by late Tuesday morning, but estimated that the area got 4 to 5 inches of snow on Monday.
“Lyon County got about 4 inches, and we had reports from the Madisonville area that they got about 4,” he said.
York said there were no measurements taken from the ice storm that moved through the area on Feb. 10 and Thursday, but estimated that Caldwell County had 0.1 to 0.3 inches of ice during the weather event.
“We put together graphics that show the total amount of snow or ice after an event,” h said. “The one for Feb. 10 shows that area got one-tenth to one-quarter inch of ice.”
York said the snow event for today (Wednesday) would begin in the late afternoon or evening and should produce as much as 4 inches of snow, although York said that estimate was preliminary.
High temperatures today and Thursday will be around 28 degrees, getting up to only 25 degrees on Friday, with low temperatures at 22 degrees tonight, dropping to 8 degrees on Thursday and 10 degrees on Friday.
On Saturday, high temperatures will cross the freezing point, getting up to 34 degrees with a low around 24. On Sunday, the temperature will get up to 43 with a chance of a rain-snow mix that afternoon or evening, with the low getting down to 31.
