Update: All Western Kentucky University campuses are closed Wednesday, and are classes have been canceled.
Lindsey Wilson College and Campbellsville University are also closed Wednesday due to the winter weather.
The western half of Kentucky is under a Winter Storm Warning as the first measureable snow of the winter is on its way.
Forecasters are predicting around five inches in Bowling Green, four inches in the Somerset and Owensboro regions, and two inches in Lexington and Louisville.
The heaviest amounts will start Wednesday morning and continue into the afternoon. Hydrologist Mike Callahan with the National Weather Service in Louisville says the snowfall could be tricky for commuters.
"They need to be extremely careful," Callahan told WKU Public Radio. "A lot of people are misguided thinking that a little bit of snow isn't a problem and sometimes a little bit of snow can be more treacherous than after the snow falls for a while."
Callahan says this will mainly be a snow event, but forecasters are watching another storm system that will occur Thursday night and into Friday that could bring a mixture of snow, sleet, and freezing rain.
Temperatures this week will be steady with evening lows in the 20s and daytime highs in the low to mid 30s.
