Adam Burniston’s Forecast | Latest calls for snowfall
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - While we continue the nice weather this weekend, all eyes are on early next week as a wintry pattern takes over with snow showers and a blast of frigid air.
As we continue into this evening and tonight, clouds will continue to thicken ahead of showers. These showers will move in from the southwest and move to the northeast through later this evening and into tonight. Temperatures will stay in the lower 50s and then cool only into the 40s by late tonight as well before winds start to shift. Speaking of winds, gusts will also be increasing through tonight with gusts of 25mph possible.
Showers will continue into Monday across our region, but as the low-pressure moves to the northeast, we will start to see a shift from the northwest, which will bring a big cool down. By Monday afternoon and evening, showers will switch over to snow from central Kentucky to the east as we move later into the day. Gusty winds will also be with us through most of the day with gusts of 25+mph likely at times.
Snow showers and gusty winds will continue through Tuesday before drier air moves in for the middle of the week. As far as snowfall accumulation, most regions could pick up light to almost 2″ of snow, and then isolated areas could pick up ~3″+. One thing for certain is frigid temperatures will continue throughout much of the week ahead as highs stay mostly in the 30s and overnight lows stay around the upper teens and 20s. There is still a lot to watch with this system, so we’ll have more updates to come.
