Chris Johnson's Forecast | Wintry mix lingers into Monday

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - It's been a pretty raw day for central and eastern Kentucky. Rain showers won out across southern and eastern Kentucky with a mixed bag of rain, sleet, and snow for parts of central and northern Kentucky.

As we head through tonight, precipitation slowly pulls eastward while colder air settles in. Drizzle continues for many spots overnight as temperatures fall below freezing. This is where we could run into some issues. Freezing drizzle could provide for some icy spots on the roadways by Monday morning and should be something to keep in mind for that commute. A light glaze in spots will be possible.

Monday afternoon will feature overcast skies and cold temperatures. Highs struggle to reach the low-mid 30's across the Bluegrass as a few flakes could fly, especially to our east and southeast.

A mix of sun and clouds break out Tuesday and Wednesday as highs slowly moderate into the 40's. A quick hitting system brings rain chances back to the forecast Thursday before another stronger system arrives by the weekend. More rain and snow chances look possible with this setup as arctic air would crash in by early next week. Looking down the road, this seems like a busy pattern that will keep the weather busy here across the Commonwealth.
