Our winter storm is shattering records. 17.1" of snow fell in Lexington and that's the most ever recorded during a two day snowstorm. We've had 32.1" of snow in the last 17 days.
Now that all the nasty stuff is out of the way we can focus on sunny days ahead. The cooler air, however, stays put only for the moment as our highs today reach the upper 30s to lower 40s under mostly sunny skies. Come tomorrow winds will crank up again out of the south, which will pump in some much nicer air. This will place us in the upper 50s to lower 60s on Friday afternoon! This time a year these cold shots only last for 24-48 hrs.
Head into the weekend and the nice weather doesn't stop for Saturday. We will have a slight chance at a shower or two, but for the most part we stay dry. Our temperatures will be in the 50s and 60s again, but surprise, surprise here comes another cold system. Sunday we will have either rain or snow. Right now I'm leaning toward mostly rain with a hint of snow, but the better snow chance will be on Sunday night into Monday morning.
