A big swing in the weather pattern is underway. After the freezing rain this morning and warm conditions this afternoon, temperatures will drop quite a bit tonight. As the northwest wind cranks up I'm expecting showers of rain to develop in the evening in scattered fashion. Temperatures will drop as the northwest wind ushers in colder air. That will change the rain to snow after midnight with spotty snow squalls going through the overnight into Friday morning.
Accumulations should be light, with up to a coating expected across most of Eastern Kentucky. Those snow showers will stick around through early Friday afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 30s.
Saturday partly cloudy skies are expected with highs in the mid to upper 30s. Sunday will be a tricky forecast as a storm develops off to the southwest. It looks like right now it should be a rain to snow event, but the dividing line between a mix and full on snow will be close to our region and will require monitoring.
Temperatures look to remain cold for most of next week.
