Temperatures this morning are hanging right around freezing and with snow this will crease some problems. Areas of southern Kentucky will already be seeing a transition over to rain early this morning, while this transition won't occur for northern parts of Kentucky until later this morning. This wintry mix, combined with road temperatures around freezing will create hazardous road conditions so make sure to take it slow if you are traveling anywhere. By this afternoon precipitation will clear out and highs will rise into the mid-30s, but then snow returns once again during the evening and overnight hours.
Some flurries may stick around early Monday morning, however most road conditions should be much better. One thing you'll also notice Monday morning is the frigid temperatures as we start the morning in the upper teens and lower 20s. These frigid conditions will last into the afternoon as highs only reach into the upper 20s with partly sunny skies.
Hit and miss snow chances will stick with us throughout much of the work and school week so you'll want to make sure to pay attention to the forecast. Tuesday and Wednesday brings our next best shot at snow chances. Then by the end of the week, we try to get a quick shot of warmer air in the mid-40s, but by next weekend we could be seeing another quick cool down and more snow chances.
