Adam Burniston's Forecast | Winter weather to follow this nice weekend ahead

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Enjoy this weekend while you can because next week brings storms that turn into snow with a big time cool down.

A cold morning will start off your Saturday morning with temperatures around the lower 30s, so if you're heading out early grab those coats. Heading throughout the day clouds will be on the increase, but a few peeks of sun will make their way into our area. Highs today will reach into the mid-50s with dry conditions remaining making for a beautiful fall-like day throughout the day.

Moving into Sunday things get even better. Morning lows will still be in the lower 30s with some frost possible, but the afternoon will be lovely. Highs will reach into the upper 50s and possibly lower 60s for some. Skies will remain mostly cloudy with some areas seeing partly sunny skies, but conditions will remain dry with a light to moderate breeze throughout the day.

Once we move into the work/school week, that's when things take a big turn. Monday will be another lovely day with highs around the mid-60s, but some scattered showers will be present with gusty winds. By Tuesday we start to track a cold front that will sweep through our area in the afternoon and evening. This front will initially bring showers and storms to our area, but quickly behind it will be snowfall. By Tuesday night into Wednesday morning conditions will become frigid with snowflakes falling possibly making for a slow commute, so allow some extra time. Highs on the latter half of the week will hardly reach above freezing some days. We will also see a couple more round of snowflakes possible as well. Accumulation at this time is hard to nail down, but parts of eastern Kentucky are looking especially good for some accumulation with Tuesday's front.
