Chris Johnson's Forecast | Rain and snow chances continue for the weekend

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - As the winter storm continues to impact the region, now most of the Commonwealth gets in on the warmer side of things. Rain chances ramp up for most statewide and continue through tonight. Overnight lows drop into the mid 30's for many spots with areas along and north of I-64 in the low 30's. It's this area that will be in the running for a wintry mix. Light snow and some freezing rain look possible with light accumulations on the table by Sunday morning.

Sunday afternoon will offer more of the same. A light wintry mix along and points to the north of 64 continue where colder air fights back. Scattered rain showers hang on for areas to the south and southeast with highs in the upper 30's. This system finally departs eastward later Sunday, but lingering moisture will provide for some light freezing rain/drizzle Sunday night and into Monday. This could lead to some icy spots on the roadways.

High pressure finally builds back into the region as temperatures climb to near seasonable readings Tuesday. Sunshine takes over through mid-week before our next system arrives late-week. Temperatures warm into the 40's before colder air crashes in next weekend. As of now, it looks like this late-week system will bring more rain and snow chances to the Commonwealth.
