Light rain has steadily been working its way into the picture Wednesday morning and with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s it's been a cold rain at that. By late this morning and early afternoon we have a chance to see a change to mixed precipitation... some slushy snow/snow pellets that may end up in light accumulation (around an inch) mainly on the grass and cause some slick driving in the Bluegrass. Southern counties will likely see little more than rain with a brief mix. After our morning and early afternoon round of rain over to a rain/slushy snow mix winds down Wednesday afternoon we'll be left wet and cold with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s south. Snow showers die down over eastern mountain counties early this evening and we'll end up in the upper 20s to low 30s with partly cloudy skies late.
Thursday looks nice, sunshine is back on the scene and highs should warm to around 50 degrees. A couple of cold fronts are heading our way Friday and Saturday and will usher in much colder air for the weekend. Highs will fall to the upper 30s Friday and to around or slightly below freezing Saturday with low chances for snow showers mainly Friday. Overnight lows will also take a hit bottoming out in the 20s and teens this weekend.
