A Winter Storm Watch (in purple) will be in effect beginning Sunday morning for the western counties in our viewing area.
As we track a cold front and low pressure center moving in beginning tomorrow, we'll see a rain-snow mix change to snow Sunday night. At times, especially Sunday late evening through the early overnight hours, travel will be treacherous and not advised as there will be some bursts of moderate to heavy snow. Snowfall accumulations are likely. As of Saturday morning, it is looking like most will see 1-3" of snow with a few locations seeing around 4". These numbers will change slightly as we get a better grasp on the exact track of the low pressure center moving along the front.
As the snow wraps up, temperatures will be dropping like a rock. Monday morning through Tuesday morning we will see the coldest temperatures we have seen in several years. Wind chill values will be in the negative teens to negative mid-twenties, making it dangerous and life-threatening to be outside for an extended period of time.
A complete updated forecast with timing, snowfall amounts, and the bitterly dangerous cold to follow will be in your StormTracker Forecast on LEX 18 News at 11PM tonight. We do not have LEX 18 News at 6PM tonight due to the NFL Wild Card game.
