Chris Johnson's Forecast | Cold temps settle in, rain and snow next week

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Talk about a COLD day here across the Bluegrass. While skies were mostly sunny, it did nothing in the way of warming us up. Highs only hit the upper 30's in many spots. Tonight, look for clear and cold conditions with lows in the low-mid 20's.

Despite a cold start Sunday, the day shapes up to be a fairly nice one. Highs are still chilly but top out in the mid-upper 40's under partly-mostly sunny skies.

Cloud cover begins to thicken up by Sunday night as mostly cloudy skies take over. This is ahead of our next system that brings rain and snow chances into early next week.

Temperatures Monday reach the mid 40's for highs before a chilly rain takes over. By Monday night, colder air starts crashing in from the northwest and eventually changes some of this rain over to snow. Snow showers would eventually take over all of central and eastern Kentucky by Tuesday morning before tapering off west to east. The exact track of this low will determine the amount of snow we will see. One thing to be noted here, this is not a significant snow event, but very light snow accumulations are on the table.

By mid-week conditions are dry and COLD. Highs only reach the 30's before another system could bring some wintry weather our way late-week and into the weekend.
