We're now making the transition over to ice and snow in the Lexington metro. Temps are going below freezing and that will create dangerous travel conditions as the afternoon wears on.
The Lexington metro will likely pick up on 1"-4" of snow and ice through tonight. Accumulations will be greater for folks around Covington to Louisville. More than 4" of snow and ice will be possible in those areas.
Farther south and east... the change to winter will be a little slower to move in and that will mean lower totals. This is the area we are watching for the potential of flooding rains.
This first blast of winter moves out overnight, but slick roads will remain into Saturday morning. The next round of snow and ice will move in by Saturday night and early Sunday.
