LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A winter weather advisory has been issued for most of northern Kentucky.

As temperatures drop to around freezing or below on Sunday, weather forecasters expect rain to change to snow by late afternoon with the possibility of a little sleet mixed in by nightfall.

Louisville meteorologist Mike Paddock says there could be an accumulation of up to 2 inches in some areas.

However, forecasters predict the precipitation will be gone by early Monday and temperatures are expected in the upper 40s, with highs in the 60s by Tuesday.

With spring just days away, Paddock says he hopes this is the last of the winter weather.

"We are hoping, and we're not the only ones," he said.

The National Weather Service says snow is expected from the Central Appalachians to the Jersey Shore. Parts of Virginia and West Virginia could receive up to 10 inches of snow.
