Adam Burniston's Forecast | Winter weather impacting the Bluegrass

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It's a First Alert Severe Weather Day as snow causes slick roads across much of the Bluegrass region and more snow will continue through the weekend.

If you have to travel anywhere this Saturday morning SLOW DOWN and allow for extra time wherever you are heading. Road conditions have been hit and miss depending on where you drive across much of central and northern Kentucky. Snow will continue to fall through the morning hours, but should start to tapper off into possible rain around noon as temperatures edge just above freezing. Then by tonight we go all through it again, but the I64 corridor will be right in the middle between snow to the north and rain to the south.

A rain/snow mix will continue throughout the morning and afternoon hours on Sunday, so be cautious on the roads yet again. Temperatures will hover right around the mid to lower 30s throughout the day and some dry periods will come in during the afternoon and evening. By Sunday night we track our third potential snowfall. As temperatures fall below the freezing mark, any mix will turn over to snow for some light accumulation overnight.

Heading back into the work week, conditions start to get better. We have a few scattered snow showers left over on Monday, but then the rest of the week stay mostly dry until Thursday into Friday. Highs throughout the week will remain fairly average in the mid to upper 30s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 20s. All around, not a bad week ahead but we will keep a close eye on any changes that occur.
