Clouds have moved in with milder temperatures. We will have a warm up on Saturday with increasing clouds and highs in the upper 40s. Showers and a wintry mix will be possible across southern KY from tonight through the day on Saturday. The rest of the Bluegrass should stay dry until late Saturday night.

The next low pressure system will track right across the viewing area and bring rain and snow for the second half of the weekend. As temperatures crash behind the cold front the transition to snow will begin Sunday afternoon 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"-5" of snow. I-64 and to the north may see 1"-3". South of I-64 may see lesser amounts of snow up to 2". Snow showers will begin late Sunday and fall through Monday. We stay in a cold and snowy pattern through the first half of next week. Highs will stay in the 30s with lows in the mid 20s.
