We have had a few hints of snow across sections of Kentucky so far this month, mainly near the northern region.

But when will Kentucky see its first measurable snowfall totals? The answer is soon!

What You Need To Know

  • Northern Kentucky usually sees snow first

  • Everyone should see some snow by the end of the year

  • The first snow is possible by Thanksgiving

Within the final week of November is when the Lexington and Covington regions typically see their first snowfall.

Louisville usually follows within the first week of December, and Bowling Green has a delay with theirs occurring around Christmas time.

A few weather models hint at some possible precipitation happening near Thanksgiving, with a focus around northern Kentucky. So, the average snowfall date could be reached just in time to line up with the data.

Statewide, Kentucky averages around 11 inches of snowfall.
