Your Halloween Stormtracker forecast has Mother Nature throwing us a very early shot of winter as well as rain showers. Get ready for messy Friday with showers and highs around 50 falling into the 40s this afternoon as colder air invades behind a cold front that will push through early in the day. A northwest wind will whip (25-35 mph gusts), showers will fall and it will be a chilly, wet and raw night for trick or treaters. As the temperature continues to crash overnight we're still looking at a chance for a change to snow showers with minor accumulation possible in the Bluegrass and a few inches mainly over the higher elevations of our eastern mountain counties. With the ground temperature still fairly warm and most of the night spent slightly above freezing it will be difficult to get this very early season snow to stick. It'll be wet & mainly on the grass if we see much at all in the Bluegrass. A winter weather advisory is in effect for Bell, Harlan, Letcher and Pike county- this is where we could see 1-3" especially at higher elevations. Saturday will be windy & much colder with lingering snow & rain showers early in the day. Highs will struggle to hit the low to mid 40s. The coldest air of the season takes over with a hard freeze likely Sunday morning- lows in the mid to upper 20s have prompted a freeze watch for the entire area this weekend. Brrrrrr! Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour Saturday night- daylight saving time ends at 2 AM Sunday.
