Our focus now turns to the potential of record lows tonight. Many areas may wake up to thermometer readings below zero.
We have Winter Storm Warnings for the counties that border Virginia and Winter Weather Advisories for counties just to the north of the warned areas from this afternoon through tomorrow morning. In the warned areas you can expect 3"-6". In the advised areas you can expect 1"-3". This is going to be a situation where the southern part of a county will be at 3"-4" and the northern part of the county at around an inch. Twenty miles with this system is going to be a big difference. For the Bluegrass and northbound we can expect a mix of sun & clouds with highs around 30°.
Our next best chance at snow will come on Friday with some rain and some snow. The I-64 corridor looks to be that cutoff line of rain or snow. Snow for the north and rain for the south. This should put down some light accumulations, especially for the north. We should see another weak snow system move through Saturday night and into Sunday morning.
Some GREAT news in the forecast is that come next week our temperatures will sky rocket and we bring rain in the forecast as opposed to snow.
