Winter Weather Advisory in Effect for Parts of WBKR Listening Area

YUCK!!! (image from The Weather Channel/Weather.com)

Is this a joke?  A big old nasty, slushy, snowy, cosmic joke?  The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the extreme northern parts of the tri-state and a Winter Weather Advisory for areas along the Ohio River.  The reason . . . Winter Storm Virgil.  That’s the name The Weather Channel gave him, though I have a few other choice names we could christen him with!!  So how much snow can we expect? Here are the details on the Winter Weather Advisory and the areas it affects . . .
