LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - After a messy system this morning and many picking up on a rain/snow mix, mother nature decided to offer a little break in the action. Unfortunately, the break is brief as our next quick hitting system dives into town.
Tonight, the cloudy skies hang tough as breezy winds start to crank up. A strong cold will work across the Commonwealth while bringing another round of some wintry weather. Scattered snow showers are expected to increase throughout this evening for parts of central Kentucky before tracking into eastern Kentucky tonight. Temperatures drop into the upper teens for overnight lows as light accumulating snowfall continues. However, this is not a big time snow event at all. Very light accumulations ranging from a coating - 1" will be possible when it's all said and done.
Mother nature offers up a nice break Monday. Mostly sunny skies return to the forecast as colder air settles in. Highs only reach the low-mid 30's Monday afternoon!
Despite the break Monday, the overall pattern remains very active. In fact, another strong system moves in Tuesday and Wednesday as rain, ice, and snow are all a possibility. Yet again, another system moves in late week and into the weekend as more rain and snow chances appear possible. Otherwise look for temperatures to hover in the 30's for much of the work week before milder highs in the 40's arrive late week and into the first part of the weekend.
