LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It's a snowy look and feel for the first part of the weekend. Ongoing snow showers have continued to add light accumulations across parts of Eastern Kentucky today, but the big story outside of the snow has been temperatures. In fact, highs are much colder as thermometers only climbed into the low-mid 20's.
Tonight, scattered snow showers remain possible and can easily put down a light accumulation of snow, but nothing more than that. Otherwise, with high pressure nosing in from the northwest, partially clearing skies take over as temperatures tank into the single digits and low teens.
Sunday will feature mostly sunny skies along with cold temperatures. Thermometers only reach the low-mid 20's for highs with wind chills in the teens. By Sunday night, clouds begin to increase as our next system edges closer to the state. A few snow showers could streak the skies, especially across parts of central and northern Kentucky. These could throw a light accumulation down in spots.
By Monday, another arctic front takes aim at the Ohio Valley. Not only will it bring bitterly cold temperatures, but also more accumulating snow chances Monday night. Light snow will continue into Tuesday morning as the frigid air begins to move in. Highs Tuesday only reach the mid teens with overnight lows around 0. Mid-upper teens for highs hang around both Wednesday and Thursday before warmer temperatures and rain chances arrive late week and this weekend.
