LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - We are much colder out there for your Tuesday. Cold enough to see some flakes of snow and even a little light accumulation possible.

A disturbance will pass by with just enough moisture to bring a light snowmaker to the region. Most of us will not see much of anything. Even the areas that get in on snow won’t have a tremendous amount of snowfall. Maybe a coating on some grassy areas or other cold solid surfaces.

Another system will approach at the end of the week. It looks very impressive.

Here’s a breakdown of what to watch for over the weekend:

  • Southwest winds kick in Friday into early Saturday and that causes our temps to surge.
  • Upper 60s and low 70s look common and we could set record highs.
  • Rounds of heavy rain and thunderstorms then target the region Saturday and Saturday night.
  • A few strong to severe storms will be possible once again.
  • High winds of 40mph or greater will be possible regardless of severe storms.
  • Flash flooding and general flooding are both possible over the weekend with the potential for river flooding to carry us into early next week. Many areas may see another 2″-4″ of rain with locally higher amounts.
  • If you’re in a flood prone area, please stay alert to the latest forecasts in the coming days.
  • Colder air crashes in Sunday with the potential for a period of wet snow as this system winds down.

Take care of each other!
