HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (WKRN) – A couple inches of snow still lingers in Hopkinsville as they city prepares for even more on Monday.

Flurries started coming down before 4 p.m. as the city anticipates another inch or two into Tuesday morning.

There will be a difference, though. Last week’s snow heavier and easily compacted, perfect for snowmen and snowballs, but this time it’ll be light and fluffy, what they call “powder snow.”

The temperatures are expected to drop as well, with wind chill diving to zero, so the snow that’s already on the ground and the slush that’s already on the streets could freeze over.

“Our main goal today was to get some salt underneath what we’re going to get today and to plow up what was already turning in and breaking loose off the pavement,” said Dave Herndon, a local plow operator.

“I think we were able to fight it back pretty good today, but the temperatures are going to drop down overnight and obviously that’s going to cause some issues, so of course we’ll do the best we can,” he continued.

Christian County Schools has already closed ahead of Tuesday. Visit wkrn.com/closings for an updated list.
