Winter storm is headed for the Bluegrass

Temperatures today topped the lower 50s with sunny skies. It was a nice break as we get ready for the next storm to roll our way. Clouds will increase overnight with lows around 32. Rain will develop late and may become a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow. The wintry mix will start early Sunday and become widespread with gusty winds up to 35 mph.

The low pressure system will track right across the viewing area and keep the heaviest snow just to our north. Around Covington snow is expected all day Sunday with a sharp transition a wintry mix just south of our far northern counties. Rain and sleet will fall through the day in the Bluegrass region and southern KY.

As temperatures crash behind the cold front the transition to snow will begin Sunday night with some accumulations likely. The exact track of the center of low pressure will determine how much snow will fall but this mostly looks like a central and northern KY threat. To paint it with a broad brush, northern KY can expect 3"-6" of snow. I-64 and to the north may see 2"-4". South of I-64 may see lesser amounts of snow up to 2". The forecasted snowfall totals are from Sunday night through Tuesday. Temperatures stay in the 30s through Wednesday with a warm up for the weekend.
