Possible Christmas flurries before a mid-week winter storm

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - The holiday weekend continues with more cold air Saturday night with lows dipping into the twenties, under a mostly clear sky and a slight southerly breeze. Sunday will be noticeably warmer, with seasonable highs in the mid 40s.

The next 7-days bring about a few changes and several chances for a little winter weather. The action kicks off Sunday, with a few possible afternoon showers for south and southeastern Kentucky. After midnight the rest of the region joins in on the rain chances. Nothing severe is expected, just welcomed showers.

Christmas eve ushers in the first disturbance in a line of threats to watch out for. Showers are likely through the afternoon Monday. Some of these could drop a few snowflakes once temperatures drop below freezing in the evening.

Christmas day looks to be cold and dry, with highs staying under 40 degrees in most places. For your Christmas evening, there's another slight chance for a rain/snow mix as lows dip into the upper 20s/low 30s.

A big low pressure system heads our way Wednesday, dragging a cold front along for the ride. This will be our best chance at seeing a measurable snowfall event. Some areas could get up to a few inches of snow before it's all said and done.

Once the cold front passes, temperatures plummet into the 20s for highs and teens for overnight lows Thursday.

Have a Merry Christmas!
