Flood Watch from Tuesday night through Thursday night. Winter Storm Watch from tomorrow through Thursday afternoon.
The rain will pick up across the area tonight, increasing our chances for flooding as the heavy rain mixes with melting snow. Temperatures will not drop much, keeping us in the low 50s.
We start to drop as we head through the daytime hours on Wednesday and our rain will eventually transition to sleet and then to snow.
Folks near the Mountain Parkway and Interstate 64 are expecting between 5-10" of sleet and snow between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Most of the central part of the area, starting in West Virginia, going through the Big Sandy and Kentucky River Valley and down toward Interstate 75. Counties near the Kentucky/Virginia/Tennessee border will see less, likely ending up in the 2-4" range.
The snow chances continue into Thursday and after dropping into the teens Wednesday night, we will struggle to get back into the 20s for daytime highs. Overnight lows Thursday will be brutal, with most locations dropping below zero.
We finally get a break in the action on Friday, with sunshine returning to the area. It will stay chilly, with highs only getting into the 30s. The sun continues this weekend.
