It's going to be an active forecast over the next several days as a few storm systems are lining up to take aim at the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. The first arrives on Thursday bringing increased clouds, temperatures near 50, and rain showers to the region. Winds will gust up to 30 miles per hour as the system moves in.
Cold air will get pulled into the mix Thursday night and will turn the rain to snow on Friday morning. A light accumulation of generally less than a half inch looks possible on Friday, however the peak of the snow looks to be during the morning commute and could create a few slick spots.
Saturday will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs near 40. Sunday another storm system will enter the region, this one looks like it will come from the southwest. The exact track and intensity of this storm is yet to be determined, but for now we're expecting mainly rain on Sunday with snow on Monday. This could change a bit and we will map out this storm in more detail as we get closer to the weekend.
