LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The winter feel and look for many continues across parts of central and eastern Kentucky. With a true northwest wind in place, scattered snow showers and squalls continue to work across parts of eastern Kentucky. The snow showers are expected to wind down this evening as clear skies take over. Temperatures will be cold as lows bottom out in the low-mid 20's. Some slick spots on the roadways (especially east) certainly a possibility.
As we look ahead to the end of the work week, old man winter will throw another system our way. The first half of the day looks pretty good as a mix of sun and clouds prevail. Thermometers will climb into the low-mid 40's for highs. Not bad, just chilly.
The second half of the day is when things get interesting. A system dives in from the northwest as a narrow band of rain/snow sets up into Friday night. As temperatures drop to around freezing, a rain/snow mix would eventually transition to an all snow late Friday night.
The key to this system is where exactly this band sets up. Right now, it does look like a good chunk of central and eastern Kentucky are sitting in a pretty decent spot to get in on some light accumulating snowfall. This light snow would carry over into Saturday morning before coming to an end.
Once again, we would catch another brief break before a second weekend system would move in later Sunday. As of right now, this would essentially start out as a chilly rain before switching over to some snow. The exact track will play a key role in what the Commonwealth could see come Sunday night and into Monday morning. Outside of the rain and snow chances ahead, the chilly weather pattern rolls on next week with highs in the 30's and 40's.
