Brief warming trend will lead to big changes this week

The holiday weekend continues with temperatures warming into the mid 30s this afternoon, with a few lingering clouds. Most of the snow in central Kentucky will melt away through lunch time. In our eastern zones, there will likely still be a lite coating left over.

Tonight, temperatures drop to a chilling 25 degrees, under a mostly clear sky and a slight breeze hanging around.

The next 7-days brings a few changes and several chances for a burst of winter weather. The action kicks off Sunday night, with showers likely after midnight. Showers will linger into Monday through the afternoon hours, as highs climb into the lower 40s.

Our first big disturbance comes through late Monday afternoon, bringing a slight chance for a few showers. Rain could change over to a few snowflakes in some areas during the evening hours.

Christmas day looks cold and dry, with highs staying under 40 degrees in most places. But through the evening, there’s a slight chance for a rain/snow mix with lows dipping into the upper 20s/low 30s.

A big low pressure system heads our way on Wednesday. This means more chances for snow through the end of the week as temperatures plummet into the 20s for highs and teens for overnight lows.
